Entry-level Nokia Android phone pops up on Geekbench

Nokia Logo

Just a few days after the sudden appearance of a high-end Nokia phone, there’s yet another handset by the company doing the rounds around the internet. Unlike the former though, the latter seems to be an entry-level device.

This is an interesting development given the fact that previous leaks had mostly concentrated on mid-range and premium offerings. Dubbed the Nokia Pixel, the handset has surfaced on Geekbench with a short list of specifications. Chief among them is a basic dual-core 1.19GHz Snapdragon 200 processor helped along by 1GB of RAM.

The Nokia Pixel may run Android 7.0.1 Nougat and support Quick Charge 3.0 for faster charging. As for its test results, it scored 404 on the single-core evaluation and 661 on the multi-core one. The name may well be a placeholder and change by the time it comes out since the brand probably wouldn’t want to go head-to-head with Google’s own Pixel series.

Nokia’s roadmap for the future was revealed recently in the form of a leaked presentation. The slides confirmed previous theories that the firm was planning to unveil new smartphones in 2017. Moreover, the company actually putting together the phones, HMD Global, has announced that it will be attending the MWC 2017 which will take place from February 27 till March 2.

Adding more fuel to this assumption is Nokia’s confirmation that its CEO Rajeev Suri is also going to be attending the MWC 2017 to give a keynote speech. The brand may be getting ready to announce a premium handset which features Carl Zeiss camera lens and a 2K display, in addition to a mid-range one dubbed the Nokia D1C.
