It seems the upcoming Nokia X71 smartphone has allegedly paid a visit to Geekbench and in doing so has revealed a few more details about the hardware it sports. The midranger from the Finnish company HMD Global should be launched in Taiwan on April 2; the device spotted on Geekbench might be just for that particular market.

Of course, before we delve into a Geekbench sighting, we have to mention that all the details below have to be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism, due to the potential false and manipulated records that pop up on the database. MySmartPrice noticed the Geekbench listing for the HMD Global Nokia X71 and now we can add a few more details to the forthcoming smartphone's supposed specifications.

Along with the reported triple rear cameras that contain a 48 MP sensor and the punch-hole selfie camera, it seems the Nokia X71 could surprisingly come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, which is an older SoC compared to the Snapdragon 710 or Snapdragon 712 we expected. The SD 660 is considerably slower than the SD 710 in regard to both the CPU and GPU performance, with the former featuring an Adreno 512 while the latter has an Adreno 616.

But it’s not all potentially bad news, as the Geekbench report for the Nokia X71 shows it operates on Android 9.0 Pie and this particular device has 6 GB RAM, which is twice as much as the single-SIM international variant of the Nokia 6.1 from 2018. Score-wise, the single-core score was 1455 points and the multi-core score was 5075 points, so not quite in the same ballpark as the Samsung Galaxy S10+ but in the right area considering the chosen dated chipset.
