Nokia 8.1 makes appearance on Geekbench ahead of December unveiling
Powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710, the Nokia 8.1 scored a respectable 1820 points on the single-core test. This then increased to 5766 points when all cores worked together. Now, according to a recent leak, HMD Global will be offering a variant of the device with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. But from the look of this benchmark, a slightly cheaper model with 4GB of RAM is set to be sold – it will likely be accompanied 64GB of internal storage.
In addition to this very respectable hardware, the Nokia 8.1 is also set to come pre-installed with stock Android 9 Pie straight out of the box as part of the Android One program. Also to be expected on the spec sheet is a 3,500mAh battery and a 6.18-inch notched display.
As mentioned above, the Nokia 8.1 is currently expected to go official on December 5. While pricing still remains unclear, sales are expected to begin by mid-December in the hope of capturing some of the last-minute Christmas purchases.
