Alleged Nokia 9 gets benchmarked, performing on-par with other flagships
We've already seen some leaked photos that allegedly showed us the Nokia 9, encased in a “black box” that was hiding most of its design. However, what we didn't know is how the handset will actually perform.

This might have just changed, as a device that is allegedly the Nokia 9 has been spotted in the database of the popular smartphone benchmarking app, Geekbench. Admittedly, the tests were done with an older version of the app, namely Geekbench 3, while most users have long migrated to the latest Geekbench 4, but if it's the real thing, its results are not less impressive.

The listing on Geekbench is named “HMD Global TA-1004”, and it is running an unnamed Qualcomm processor. Considering recent rumors, we'd be inclined to believe that the CPU is the latest and greatest by Qualcomm – the Snapdragon 835, which can also be found in the Samsung Galaxy S8+, Sony Xperia XZ Premium and the newly announced HTC U11. The alleged Nokia 9 also comes with 4 GB of RAM and Android 7.1.1, both of which are pretty much mandatory for a current flagship to compete with the rest of its class.

What about the actual scores it got on Geekbench 3, though? The handset hit scores of 2255 on the single-core test, and 7770 on the multi-core test. To put it in perspective, these results are better than what the Galaxy S8 got on the same version of Geekbench. Considering the Nokia 9 is rumored to come with a near-stock Android, these benchmark results should be a good indicator of its real performance, too. Of course, assuming that this is in fact the Nokia 9.
