Rumors: #Nokia 7, 8 & 9 surfaced on #Geekbench with #Snapdragon 630, 660 & 835

Three unidentified devices running latest Snapdragon platforms 630, 660 and 835 were spotted on Geekbench.  All three devices carry the name “Unknown Heart”, and are running Android 7.1.1. In late January, Nokia 5 appeared in Geekbench database as “Nokia Heart“, and considering the rumors that HMD is preparing three smartphones for introduction, these 3 “Unknown Heart” devices could be Nokia 7, Nokia 8 and Nokia 9.

The most powerful “Unknown Heart” device comes with Snapdragon 835 and 4GB of RAM, which is consistent with previous rumors, apart from the fact that a Nokia 9 version with 6GB of RAM was mentioned. The next “Unknown Heart” device comes with the newly announced Snapdragon 660 and 3GB of RAM, and we believe that could be the rumored Nokia 8. The third “Unknown Heart” device has a Snapdragon 630, announced together with 660 earlier this month, and 3GB of RAM, same as the second “Unknown Heart” device. Keep in mind, this is still unverified and should be treated purely as rumors.

This week we also witnessed an HMD partner publishing an official promo video for 4 Nokia-branded device, including one with a dual-lens camera. The video was taken down quickly, but the Dual-lens device is consistent with previous rumors and drawing that were leaked and found even in official Nokia promo videos. The last time we heard about the 7 and 8 was that both were coming with metallic bodies and Snapdragon 660, but the latest Geekbench results, if they are from Nokia phones, suggest otherwise. In case of the Nokia 9, we already know for months that HMD is preparing a device with Snapdragon 835, but we didn’t know and still don’t know what name will it carry.

All in all, HMD is planing to introduce three higher end smartphones till the end of this year. We are still waiting for the global launch of Nokia 3310, which is available in few countries, and Nokia smartphones announced at MWC this year, the 3, 5 and 6.

Thanks Marty for the tip. 🙂

    Actually, I think the leaked promo video isn’t really “official” , for example the lockscreen UI is from Android KitKat

    • The guy that published it works for HMD (as a contractor) and said in description that’s an early video about the phones, probably meant for internal usage. The authenticity was also confirmed when he took the video down, and the phone (dual-lens one) is in consistency with everything we saw and heard. But if it is a concept video, it is like the best one we have ever seen. 🙂

      I think it is underclocked laptop or mini pc desktop, that i7 4700HQ can not be inside a phone or tablet.

      • Ohh OK!! Thanks 🙂

        I really liked the way you defended Nokia on phone arena.

        Nice to see someone that knows the facts and can logically make statements that are based in reality as opposed to some nonsense that so many uninformed people post.

        Good job …

        • Hemedans

          thanks, but i knew many things from you guys, back at mynokiablog days,

  • Hemedans

    So it is sd660 and not 650, your heading say 650.

    Am glad they use 14nm and 10nm soc, for the sake of good battery life

    • Thank you, it’s corrected know. I was surprised how good with battery the S835 is on Galaxy S8. Expected that the 3000mAh won’t last long, but nobody had anything bad to say about batter life, in contrary.

      • Hemedans

        Yah, and even with 3000mah, soc like sd630 will provide good battery life. I just Hope they use bigger battery in Nokia 7 and destroy again battery benchmarks like lumia 1520 Did.

          In my opinion, I think if Nokia is planning to come out with a phone around September, it better push the latest Google software with it. Because by September or October, Android O will be implemented in Android phones. If Nokia uses nougat, it’ll be viewed as using 11 month old software in a brand new just released phone. This is NOT a good thing … The public eye will view this as a type of complacency on behalf of Nokia! And haters will jump on the bandwagon talking $#!T about Nokia.

          Also, Snapdragon 835 will have been out for about 6 months by September or October 2017. So putting in today’s awesome processor will look silly if it’s placed in a flagship phone (meant to compete with xynos and fusion, and Chinese phones that have used it long before Nokia) by the end of the year…

          Also, battery life… It’s awesome that Android OS is trying to emulate the incredible phenomenal efficiency and optimizations of our beloved Symbian, but ultimately, with data and connectivity, a proper 3550mAh – 3980 mAh battery would be an absolute necessity!

          (Or just make it 3600 or 4000 mAh and call it a day)
