Back in January this year, there were reports of Xiaomi launching the Redmi Note 5 with Snapdragon 632 SoC under the hood. However, the company ended up launching the Redmi Note 5 with Snapdragon 625 instead. Well now, a device called Xiaomi Berlin has been spotted on Geekbench, and, it’s powered by this Snapdragon 632 chip.
A device called Xiaomi Berlin has been listed on popular benchmarking site Geekbench. This device made a score of 1155 and 2738 points in Geekbench’s single and multi-core points respectively. And, according to Geekbench, Xiaomi Berlin is powered by the unannounced Snapdragon 632 SoC which is paired with 3 GB RAM and running Android 7.1.2 Nougat.
However, what’s worth noting here is that Geekbench listing shows Snapdragon 632 with six cores instead of eight cores. Moreover, the clock frequency of 1.02 GHz is also kind of low.
But, that said, we all know that benchmark listings aren’t accurate at all times. Moreover, this could very likely be a prototype device that Xiaomi was testing, and hence, there’s no guarantee that it would ever make it to the markets.
With that being said, we might see this device popping up again in the future if and when Qualcomm announces its Snapdragon 632 chip. Until then, if you are looking to buy a sub-₹15,000 smartphone, you can check out the Redmi Note 5 or the Redmi Note 5 Pro that Xiaomi launched last month in India and see which one suits your need.
