Xiaomi is reportedly working on a new smartphone, which is said to be powered by the yet to be announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 638 SoC. The device has been spotted on Geekbench, by GizmoChina, with the codename “Valentino” and is listed running on the octa-core Snapdragon 638 processor, which is clocked at 1.44GHz. The listing also reveals that the handset runs on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo operating system with 6GB RAM and manages to obtain 1485 points in the Geekbench single-core test and 5440 points in the multi-core tests. Going by the scores, the Snapdragon 638 performs better on single-core tests as compared to the Snapdragon 650 but scores slightly lower than the Snapdragon 820.

Xiaomi's previously launched Redmi Note 5 Pro is the first smartphone which was launched running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC. The company had also launched the Mi Mix 2S, which became the first smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC. Speaking of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, Xiaomi recently announced a price hike on the device and its 4GB RAM variant will now cost Rs 1,000 extra. This gives an upper hand to the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, which is competing against the Xiaomi smartphone.

Asus announced its latest Zenfone Max Pro M1 smartphone in India late last month and it went up for pre-orders on May 3. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC and features a 5.99-inch IPS full HD+ Full View display with a taller 18:9 display aspect ratio. It comes in Black and Grey colour models and in two memory models, one with 3GB RAM/32GB internal storage, which is priced at Rs 10,999 and another with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage which will be available for Rs 12,999. The next sale of the device is on May 10.

In terms of optics, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is equipped with 13MP + 5MP dual-rear cameras and on the front, it features an 8MP sensor. Both the front and rear cameras come with a dedicated LED softlight. For audio, the dual-SIM smartphone features a 5 magnet speaker setup with an NXP smart amplifier, which the company says enhances the device’s audio quality. The handset features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and is backed by 5000mAh battery, which Asus claims can deliver up to 25.3 hours of full HD video playback and charges fully in 2 hours and 42 minutes.
