Nokia 9 tops Geekbench 3
A Nokia device—presumed to be the Nokia 9—was spotted on Geekbench today with scores that would put it at the top of the Android market. The device, listed as the HMD Global TA-1004, had specifications that corresponds to the previously leaked Nokia 9.
The Nokia 9 has been all but confirmed to ship with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 and its benchmark scores were nothing but impressive, beating off fierce competition like the Xiaomi MI 6 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium to top the single and multi-core categories. It, however, came marginally second to the iPhone 7 Plus on the single core test.
The device has been speculated to retail with a price tag in the $900 region. Pricey, but if these benchmark scores are anything to be believed, it may just turn out to be incredible value for money, especially considering the Finnish company’s penchant for high-quality build and UX.
Nokia’s new device was, again, confirmed to carry 4GB of RAM, and previous prototype leaks claim it will have 64GB of internal storage. Dual rear cameras, a front-facing fingerprint reader, and a 5.3” QHD display complete a package that would be Nokia’s cocky response to the industry’s frontrunners.
The device was benchmarked on Geekbench 3.4.1
