HMD Global has been in the news headlines lately as the anticipation for its Nokia 9 flagship and other rumored Nokia branded phones get intense. Few hours after the rumored Nokia 6 2018 appeared in a teaser image released by Suning, the device has now appeared on the GeekBench database, confirming some of the specs already in the public domain.
The Nokia 6 2018 with model number TA-1054 tested on the Gekkbench platform uses the Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform with 2.21GHz clock speed coupled with 4GB and will boot Android 8.0 out of the box.
As far as performance is concerned, the Nokia 6 2018 with model number TA-1054 pulled a total of 863 and 4163 points in the single-core and multi-core tests, in that order. While the Geekbench is usually conservative in revealing more details, it is worth noting that the device in question was approved by China’s regulatory agency TENAA where a few other details were revealed.
As per TENAA’ listing, the device measuring 148.8 x 75.8 x 8.15 mm is expected to feature a 5.5” with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (16:9 aspect ratio), while the camera functions will be handled by a 16MP sensor on the rear and an 8MP above the display for selfies. The phone as seen on TENAA runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat, but that of the Geekbench is more logical since its 2018 device. It is expected to feature same 3000mAh battery as the first-gen Nokia 6, while it will come in white, blue, and black.
The last bit of information we had was that the Nokia 6 2018 will be unveiled on January 5th.
