Nokia 8.1 makes appearance on Geekbench ahead of December unveiling
Leaked Nokia 8.1 press render
If all goes to plan, by next Wednesday the Nokia 8.1’s release status will have changed from “upcoming” to “announced.” And with just a few days ago, the device has made a quick appearance on Geekbench.
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.
