HMD Global powered Nokia looks all set for announcing its new smartphone lineup. The lineup includes upcoming flagship device Nokia 9, the second generation of Nokia 7, Nokia 3310 (4G), alongside a new Nokia 4G enabled phone with QWERTY keyboard.
For a recap, Nokia 7 was launched last year in China and it seems like Nokia is planning a bigger variant of the successor with a name Nokia 7 Plus which was recently spotted on Geekbench revealing some of the information.
It’s for the first time that any information regarding the Nokia’s upcoming device Nokia 7 Plus surfaced online. Previously rumors suggested that the brand is working on an upgraded variant of the Nokia 7, however, nothing was known apart from the phone’s name.
According to the listing, the performance department on the device is managed by an octa-core Snapdragon 660 SoC integrated with 4GB RAM. It looks like the device will run on latest Android 8.0 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box.
Moreover, the Nokia 7 Plus scores 1636 in the single-core test whereas scores 5902 for the multi-core test according to the benchmark results. None of the other core specifications are known as of now.
The smartphone is unlikely to get announced at the Mwc 2018 event held in Barcelona, but we can expect the Global launch of the previous Nokia 7 which is still China exclusive.
On the other hand, Nokia 7 sports a 5.2-inch Full-HD IPS display with Gorilla Glass for protection. The hardware is powered by Snapdragon 630 processor coupled with 4GB or 6GB RAM.
