The upcoming Nokia 3.4 smartphone has appeared on a press render
The device received a turquoise back cover with an unusual shimmer and, probably, a textured coating, a disk-shaped module of the main triple camera and a fingerprint scanner under it. Noteworthy is the additional physical button on the left side, complementing the volume rocker and the power button on the right. According to unconfirmed rumors, Nokia 3.4 will be based on the budget Snapdragon 460 chipset and 3 GB of RAM.
Nokia 3.4 surfaces on GeekBench with Snapdragon 460 SoC
HMD Global is a very peculiar company when it comes to the names of its smartphones. After all, the company started with the numbered updates for its smartphones. Nokia 6, 6.1, 6.2 this kind of name often resemble software updates. When it comes to the actual codenames of smartphones, it seems that HMD is a fan of Marvel. After having one of its “.4” smartphones named Wolverine, a new Marvel character smartphone appeared with the Doctor Strange codename. The device appeared on the GeekBench database and might reach the market with Nokia 3.4 moniker.
Interestingly enough, Nokia 3.4, or Nokia Doctor Strange appeared on the popular benchmarking platform with a Snapdragon 460 SoC. It’s Qualcomm’s new offering for low-end smartphones and it’s a high jump over past chipsets. The results are quite similar with those of the Vivo Y20, another phone equipped with this chipset.
Interestingly enough, the Snapdragon 460 is close to the Snapdragon 662, with the latter having a slightly superior clock speed. Hence, faster than its 4xx series sibling. The new chip brings four Cortex-A73 cores to the game which delivers excellent performance to the Nokia 3.4. In fact, it’s much superior to the performance offered by its Nokia 2.4 sibling. The Nokia 2.4 ships with Helio P22 an Octa-Core chip with eight Cortex-A53 cores. The Nokia 3.4 with SD460 scored 252 points in the Single-Core tests and 1,259 Points on the Multi-Core department. The upcoming device passed through Geekbench with 3GB of RAM and Android 10 in tow.
Apart from the GeekBench listing, we still don’t have many details about the new smartphone. Unfortunately, we also don’t know the exact date of launch. However, we expect a separate event for the Indian market. After all, HMD already confirmed the launch of the Nokia 5.3 in the country along with two new affordable phones. Perhaps, Nokia 3.4 is one of these devices.
