HMD is expected to launch the Nokia 7.2 later this month in China and a global release at IFA in September. Ahead of the official unveiling, the mid-range Nokia smartphone is spotted on the benchmarking site Geekbench. The benchmark result reveals key details about the phone ‘s specs including its chipset.
The smartphone was benchmarked in Geekbench as the “HMD Global Nokia 7.2”. According to the listing, the device has 6GB RAM and runs on Android 9 Pie. We can expect other RAM variants too but this should be the highest RAM option. The predecessor Nokia 7.1 was available in 3GB RAM and 6GB RAM variants.
The Geekbench listing doesn’t mention the chipset and the motherboard says “Daredevil” which is the phone’s codename. However taking its base frequency of 1.84GHz and comparing to other benchmarked devices, it will be powered by the Snapdragon 660. So, the rumours about the Nokia 7.2 being powered by the SD 660 turned out to be true. This is a fair upgrade considering the Nokia 7.1 came with a Snapdragon 636 chipset.
As for its performance, the device managed to score 1604 and 5821 points in the single-core and multi-core tests respectively. They are similar to the score of Redmi Note 7 which have the same SD 660 chipset. The handset is said to sport a triple rear camera setup stacked in a circular housing. The configuration of the cameras is unknown but we can expect it to have ZEISS lens. Moreover, it should come with a FHD+ display and a rear mounted circular fingerprint sensor.
HMD is yet to reveal the remaining specifications of the Nokia 7.2. We have to wait till the launch event to known the full specs, price and availability of the device. Till then, keep tuned.
