HMD Global launched the Nokia 7 in October only in China where it became a massive hit reaching around 1,50,000 pre-registrations before the sale. While the rest of the world is still waiting for its global launch, the company is gearing up for the launch of its bigger variant- the Nokia 7 Plus. The smartphone last made its appearance in the Nokia’s unreleased camera app, and now it has been spotted on the benchmarking website GeekBench revealing its specs. This the first time the device has made an appearance in public. Previously except the name, everything else was just speculations.
According to the GeekBench listing, the Nokia 7 Plus will be sporting a 5.2-inch FHD (1920x 1080 pixels) IPS display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass on top. Under the hood, the device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset coupled with 4 GB of RAM. Now the Nokia 7 was powered by Snapdragon 630 chipset and was available in both 4 and 6 GB of RAM. It’s still not confirmed whether the Nokia 7 Plus will also be available in 6 GB variant. The smartphone will also be shipped with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
In the website, the device scored 1636 in the single-core test and 5902 in the multi-core test. Other than this other information about the smartphone is not available at the moment. As for the pricing the device is expected to be priced around CNY 2,499 (Rs 24,500 approx). Given that Nokia 7 is yet to release in foreign markets, the Nokia 7 will not likely appear in the next month MWC (Mobile World Congress) event. But it may be formally announced in the event since last week Juho Sarvikas, CEO of HMD Global tweeted that the company will be launching “awesome” products in the event.
