Nokia 7 ‘Plus’ hits benchmark website, what to expect?

The Nokia 7 didn’t launch in as many countries as the first wave of HMD’s Nokia-branded phones, but it seems like we have a Plus variant on the horizon…

Yep, a Geekbench listing for the device (spotted by GSMArena) shows evidence of a Nokia 7 Plus, packing a Snapdragon 660 processor (eight semi-custom Kryo 260 cores), 4GB of RAM and Android Oreo. By comparison, the vanilla Nokia 7 offered a less powerful Snapdragon 630 chip (eight A53 cores) and 4GB or 6GB of RAM.

As for the actual score? Well, the Nokia 7 Plus delivered a single-core score of 1636 and a multi-core score of 5902.

By comparison, the Galaxy S8 delivered scores of 1955 and 6430 respectively while the Huawei P10 Plus offers a score of 1885 and 5806 respectively. So if this is indeed the Nokia 7 Plus, then you can expect near-flagship levels of performance.

The Geekbench listing doesn’t reveal anything else, but if it’s a Plus model, we’d expect a larger display and a bigger battery. We’d also expect a similar 16MP f/1.8 main camera and OZO audio recording as the standard Nokia 7.

It’s not the only Nokia smartphone news this month, as we’ve heard rumours of a “penta-lens” Nokia 10, sporting five lenses. Then there’s the Nokia 6 2018, having launched in China earlier this month. There’s no doubt that MWC will most likely see a wider launch.
