Android 7.0 powered Nokia D1C handset is run through Geekbench multiple times

Android 7.0 powered Nokia D1C handset is run through Geekbench multiple times
A Nokia smartphone with the model number D1C has appeared on the Geekbench benchmark site. Not much is known about the device except that it is powered by the Snapdragon 430 SoC featuring an octa-core 1.4GHz CPU, and the Adreno 505 GPU. 3GB of  RAM is inside and Android 7.0 is pre-installed on what appears to be a low to mid-range model.

When the deal between Microsoft and Nokia closed in April 2014 sending Nokia Devices and Services to Redmond for more than $7 billion, a non-compete clause prevented Nokia from using its name on a new phone until today. You see, today happens to mark the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2016. We could see three to four new Android phones or tablets from Nokia during the current three month period that ends in December. Two of the handsets are rumored to be powered by the high-end Snapdragon 820 chipset.

As we already pointed out, the phone spotted on Geekbench is a little more downscale than those two rumored models. With the Snapdragon 430 chipset inside, the Nokia D1C was run through Geekbench five times yesterday. The highest single-core score was 682 (twice) while the highest multi-core score was 3229.

It helps to generate link backs to their site through search engines, and if no one trolled most of these comment sections would be quarter the size they usually are.

That SD 430 and Adreno 505 performance is under 2013 high end phone performance... But you claim it to be a king, it'll beat all SD 820/821 devices right?
