Jun 02, 2017 06:15 AM EDT


The upcoming Nokia flagship, likely dubbed the Nokia 9, has made an appearance on the Geekbench database. According to the listing, Nokia 9 is expected to be equipped with 4GB RAM.

In the Geekbench database, the Nokia 9 is listed as "Unknown Heart". However, it is not sure if that means the "HMD Global TA-1004" and "Unknown Heart" are both the Nokia 9, or two completely different phones.

Powering the "Unknown Heart" is the Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC, Qualcomm's latest flagship mobile SoC for 2017. As seen with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and a few other devices, the Snapdragon 835 is a powerful chipset which offers impressive performance improvements as compared to last year's Snapdragon 820/821, especially in the graphics department.

Nokia 9 surprisingly scored very low in both the Single-core and multi-core tests. The scores managed by "Unknown Heart" are comparable to entry-level smartphones powered by much weaker quad-core chips. The "HMD Global TA-1004" had performed much better, posting a single-core test score of 2255 points and a multi-core score of 7770.

According to Android, the flagship Nokia 9 is said to boast a 5.3-inch display with 1440 x 2560 Quad HD resolutions and feature a premium build with a full-metal unibody design and an IP68 certification for dust and water resistance. As per the Geekbench listings, Nokia 9 will be available in multiple memory configurations, with the base device featuring 4GB of RAM and the top end variant featuring 8GB of RAM.

In terms of storage, the Nokia 9 will boast 64GB of internal storage. At the rear side, there will be a dual-camera setup with two 13MP resolution sensors. The smartphone is said to be running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box when it goes on sale sometime in the third quarter of this year, as reported by GSM Arena. According to previous leaks and reports, the Nokia 9 could have a price tag of $700 in the US.
