Nokia 9 Packs With 8GB RAM And Eight-core Qualcomm Processor
The highly-anticipated flagship smartphone by Nokia, the Nokia 9 is nearing its release date. A recent report says that Nokia's flagship phone is said to come with as much as 8GB of RAM on board, or the amount of memory you'd usually find on a decent-to-pro laptop. The leak comes from Geekbench, which registered benchmark scores for a device labeled as Unknown Heart.
According to the new benchmark listing, the Nokia 9 will also come with a SoC that packs an octa-core processor with a clock speed of 1.90GHz. The processor carries an ID that reads "ARM implementer 81 architecture 8 variant 10 part 2048 revision 1", that is similar to Qualcomm's powerful SoC SnapDragon 835. The device was listed as HMD Global TA-1004 on the Geekbench website, noting that the new Nokia device will pack a massive of 8GB RAM.
Interestingly, the Nokia 9 will feature 13-megapixel cameras and a 12-megapixel front-facing camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a dual-LED flash support. The phone is said to support Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 thanks to the Snapdragon 835 processor. No official battery capacity yet has been announced. Moreover, the home button of the Nokia 9 will have a fingerprint sensor embedded in it. The leaked photos also feature a USB Type-C charging port and a 3.5 mm jack.
Meanwhile, the upcoming Nokia 9 had a decent score of 7770 in the multi-core performance test set by Geekbench 3, it lagged far behind Apple's iPhone 7 Plus in a single core performance. It will certainly prove the $699 price tag which HMD Global is reported to charge. Furthermore, it'll be exciting to see whether this particular device will be tested at its maximum capabilities, as it might be more powerful than any flagship we've seen to date.
