Nokia is apparently working on its first-ever quad-core Windows Phone 8 (WP8) powered smartphone, if recent benchmark results are any indication.

A mysterious WP8 Lumia smartphone, housing a quad-core processor has popped up in benchmark results, fueling speculation that it may well be the much-rumored Nokia Lumia EOS.

The benchmark results are courtesy of the GFXBench database, but details regarding the impending Nokia Lumia WP8 smartphone are minimal.

According to a Geeky Gadgets report, "A new quad core Nokia Lumia Windows Phone smartphone has turned up in the GFXBench, and it reveals some details about Nokia's first quad core Windows Phone smartphone."

No details are available as to the exact processor the unnamed Lumia smartphone will deploy, although benchmarks have disclosed that the GPU will be Adreno 305 (the same one found on the Lumia 620). The processor could likely be the Snapdragon 400 quad-core one (clocked at 1.2GHz).with four Cortex-A7 cores.

The benchmark results also hint that the Lumia WP8 smartphone will feature a 1280 x 720 pixels resolution HD display.

Nokia is scheduled to host an event next month on July 11, where the Finnish company is widely expected to take the wraps off its much-anticipated Lumia EOS. Speculations are rife that the Lumia EOS could well be the quad-core device that has surfaced in this benchmark. However, a possibility exists that this is a different device which Nokia has in the works and intends on releasing alongside the Lumia EOS.

A quad-core smartphone from Nokia would give a fillip to the company's popular Lumia line-up of WP8 handsets. Whether the mysterious WP8 Lumia smartphone can replicate (perhaps even better) the success of the Lumia 920 remains to be seen.
