Qualcomm Snapdragon 638 processor is in the works besides SD635 and SD670

Nearly an hour ago, we told you that Qualcomm is working on the Snapdragon 670 SoC. Well, it turns out a couple of other chipsets from Snapdragon 600 series are also in the works currently.

The chip-maker is reportedly planning to introduce a new chipset called Snapdragon 638 alongside the Snapdragon 635 SoC which comes as a successor to the Snapdragon 630 chipset.

Although there’s no official confirmation, both the Snapdragon 635 and Snapdragon 638 SoCs should be built on 14nm process node akin to its predecessors. While the Snapdragon 670 SoC, on the other hand, will be built on Samsung 10nm LPE process.
