Nokia 7 Plus with Snapdragon 660 spotted on benchmark site

Last month it was reported that the Nokia 7 could be launched globally in 2018, and while that announcement did not happen, a new variant of the device has now been spotted on Geekbench.

According to the Geekbench listing, the device is named 'Nokia 7 Plus' and features a Snapdragon 660 chipset, which is an upgrade from the current Snapdragon 630 on the Nokia 7 that was launched in China few months ago.

In addition to the chipset, the only information about the hardware that is revealed by Geekbench is the device's 4GB RAM. On the software side, the Android version is said to be Android 8.0 Oreo. The original Nokia 7 comes in 4GB and 6GB RAM variants, so the memory isn't exactly an upgrade in case of the Plus. It could feature a larger screen compared to the standard version, but that is just speculation based on the Plus nomenclature.

HMD Global was expected to launch Nokia 9 and expand the availability of the Nokia 7 in January, but now it seems we will have to wait till Mobile World Congress for all the announcements from the company.
