Benchmarks for the Nokia 7 Plus, the rumoured larger sibling to the Nokia 7, appear to have leaked online showing the handset is going to come packing a snappier processor than its predecessor.
Spotted on Geekbench the Nokia 7 Plus looks to come packing an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor running at 1.84GHz. That’s a processor bump over the Snapdragon 630 chip found in the Nokia 7, which so far has only launched in China.
While the Snapdragon 660 can’t keep pace with the Snapdragon 835 chip found in a bevy of flagship Android phones, it still racks up a solid score in the Geekbench benchmarks.
Single core performance scores 1636, while multi-core performance reaches a decent score of 5902. That performance should be plenty to keep Android Oreo ticking along nicely, without seeing the Nokia 7 Plus come with the hefty price as seen on the likes of the Pixel 2 and iPhone X.
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.
Given the Nokia 7 came with a 5.2-inch full HD display 64GB of on-board storage, a 16MP rear camera, and a 3,000mAh battery, we can expect he Nokia 7 Plus to be an evolution of this specification.
If the screen is larger, then we’d not be surprised to see a larger battery and a display resolution increase, and more built-in storage wouldn’t be a bad bet either.
The Nokia 7 Plus, if it’s indeed in the works, is likely to be revealed at Mobile World Congress 2018 towards the end of February. So keep checking back with Trusted Reviews for more updates and all the news from the show floor.
