Nokia 7 Plus benchmarked with speedier chipset

Likely to be called Nokia 7 Plus, the smartphone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor.

And the listing further says that the phone is running Android 8.0 Oreo at the time of benchmarking, so it' safe to assume the Nokia 7 Plus will run Android Oreo out of the box when it launches.

The benchmark leas also shows the Nokia 7 Plus will have 4GB of RAM, though there could be other configurations in the mix that could add another 2GB or so into the handset. According to the GeekBench listing, the device has single-core score of 1636 and Multi-core score of 5902.

By comparison, the Galaxy S8 delivered scores of 1955 and 6430 respectively while the Huawei P10 Plus offers a score of 1885 and 5806 respectively.

The yesteryear launched Nokia 7 packed 4GB/6GB RAM and was priced at 2,499 Yuan (approximately Rs. 25,000) and 2,699 yuan (approximately Rs. 27,000) respectively. However, we've already seen the presence of the Nokia brand on models such as Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 with built-in Ozo spatial audio technology. The Nokia 6 also packs a 16MP rear camera with LED flash, 8MP selfie camera, and 3000mAh battery. Rumors suggest its fingerprint scanner, sensors, and selfie-camera would be embedded in the display. The company might also unveil Nokia 1 and Nokia 9 at the same event.

HMD Global's Juho Sarvikas confirmed in a response on Twitter saying that the Nokia 3 will soon be upgraded to Android Oreo, with the beta test to be out in a few days. With that said, the Plus moniker will refer to the internals of the smartphone.

While it's still not clear when the company plans to bring the camera-centric phone to the market, the launch could happen towards the end of the year. It is expected to come with an HD IPS display, 1GB RAM, and 8GB onboard storage.
