Nokia 7 Plus Spotted in GeekBench with Snapdragon 660 Processor and 4 GB RAM
HMD Global launched the Nokia 7 in October only in China, where it became a massive hit, reaching around 1,50,000 pre-registrations before the sale. While the rest of the world is still waiting for its global launch, the company is gearing up to launch its bigger variant- the Nokia 7 Plus. The smartphone last appeared in the Nokia’s unreleased camera app, and now it has been spotted on the benchmarking website GeekBench revealing its specs. This is the first time the device has made an appearance in public. Previously, except for the name, everything else was just speculation.
According to the GeekBench listing, the Nokia 7 Plus will be sporting a 5.2-inch FHD (1920x 1080 pixels) IPS display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass on top. Under the hood, the device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset and 4 GB of RAM. A Snapdragon 630 chipset powered the Nokia 7 and was available in 4 and 6 GB of RAM. It’s still not confirmed whether the Nokia 7 Plus will also be available in the 6 GB variant. The smartphone will also be shipped with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
On the website, the device scored 1636 in the single-core test and 5902 in the multi-core test. Other than this, information about the smartphone is not available now. As for the pricing, the device is expected to be priced around CNY 2,499 (Rs 24,500 approx). Given that the Nokia 7 is yet to be released in foreign markets, the Nokia 7 will not likely appear in next month’s MWC (Mobile World Congress) event. But it may be formally announced in the event since last week, Juho Sarvikas, CEO of HMD Global, tweeted that the company will be launching “awesome” products in the event.
