Nokia 8.1 Spotted On Geekbench Before Launch
An upcoming premium smartphone from Nokia with the moniker Nokia 8.1 has appeared on Geekbench’s website before it’s official launch. The specifications of the Nokia 8.1 are quite similar to the recently launched Nokia X7 or Nokia 7.1 Plus.
The device has the same processor as the Nokia X7 which is the Snapdragon Qualcomm 710 SoC. It is an Octa-core processor, which according to Geekbench has a frequency of 1.71 GHz that is much less than what it is capable of. Geekbench results also reveal that the device has 4 GB of RAM. The device that was benchmarked might be the base variant of Nokia 8.1 as even the Nokia X7 is available with 4 GB or 6 GB RAM.
Nokia 8.1 Geekbench Score
The device has a single-core score of 1841 and a multi-core score of 5807 even though the processor is not set to its highest clock speed. So if Nokia speeds up the processor the score would improve considerably.
Besides the RAM and processor, not many specifications of the Nokia 8.1 are available as of now. But as it might be an improved smartphone over to the Nokia 7.1 plus, we expect it to have better specifications.
For reference, the Nokia 7.1 plus has a 6.18 inch IPS LCD touchscreen with a pixel density of 408 ppi. It has the Octa-Core Snapdragon 710 processor. Four Cores have a frequency of 2.2 GHz and the other four of 1.7 GHz. It has 12 MP + 13 MP dual rear cameras and a 20 MP front selfie camera. The Nokia 7.1 has a 3,500 mAh non-removable lithium-ion battery and supports fast charging. It is available in 4 GB or 6 GB RAM variants paired with 64 GB or 128 GB of inbuilt storage which is expandable up to 400 GB via a MicroSD card.
However, Nokia is yet to comment about the leaked device. For now, we can only wait for Nokia to officially announce the smartphone and bring it to India.
