Nokia 7 Plus spotted on Geekbench, Snapdragon 660 in tow
HMD started 2018 on a strong foot, with the release of the mid-range Nokia 6 (2018). While that device is yet to be launched globally, the company is already on the way to announce yet another device, this time, the Nokia 7 Plus.
The Nokia 7 Plus doesn't come as a surprise, of course—a camera app revealed that it would be one of HMD's devices for 2017. The company released a Nokia 7 towards the end of 2017 but that has only been launched in China, and it's currently unknown if it will make its way to other parts of the world. The Nokia 6 (2018) is a similar device, in any case, and we're not sure if HMD is keen on splitting sales between both of them, especially since the Nokia 6 (2018) looks to offer better value for money.
The Nokia 7 Plus, going by the Geekbench listing, will be powered by the Snapdragon 660, a few steps up from the Snapdragon 630 on the regular Nokia 7. It's also seen with 4 GB of RAM and running on Android Oreo. The latter is particularly noteworthy, as the Nokia 6 (2018) that was announced earlier this month ran on Nougat out of the box.
The listed performance scores are about par for a Snapdragon 660 device, in any case, nothing really spectacular. The Snapdragon 660 offers performance on par with 2016 flagships, which is impressive for a mid-range SoC.
