- The phone was earlier leaked in live image
- GeekBench listing reaffirms previously leaked specifications
- The phone is expected to pack 4GB of RAM
It seems we are finally nearing the launch of Nokia 9, the rumoured flagship Nokia Android phone that had been spotted in a leaked promotional video and live images. This time, Nokia 9 specifications have surfaced online via benchmark tests. If these tests are any indication, the alleged Nokia 9 smartphone will be able to deliver performance at par with, if not better, current flagships from other companies. Moreover, the upcoming Nokia flagship performs impressively in the benchmarks, suggesting a powerful rival to the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8, iPhone 7, and other top models may on the way.
As per the purported GeekBench 3 listing of the Nokia 9, spotted first by Dutch website Telefoon Abonnement, a device listed as “HMD Global TA-1004” outperforms other flagship smartphones in multi-core scores. However, it should be noted that these benchmark scores were recorded on an earlier version of the benchmark too, GeekBench 3, and not on the latest version – Geekbench 4.
Notably, the listing didn’t throw any major surprises at us and suggests that the Nokia 9 will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat, will be powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC, and will pack 4GB of RAM. This doesn’t rule out a higher RAM variant however. While the alleged Nokia 9 was able to post an impressive score in multi-core performance, it still seems to be way behind the iPhone 7 Plus, much like other Android phones, in terms of single-core performance.
In terms of optics, the Nokia 9 is expected to feature dual 13-megapixel cameras at the back and have a dual-LED flash support as well. The Nokia smartphone has been tipped to offer 64GB of inbuilt storage. While the battery capacity on the phone has not been disclosed, the Nokia 9 is expected to support Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 thanks to the Snapdragon 835 SoC. Further, the Nokia phone seems to have a fingerprint scanner embedded into the home button at the front.
