Nokia 9 to have Snapdragon 835 SoC
One of the GeekBench listings is believed to be that of the Nokia 9, which is likely to be the high-end model among the three listings. The listing doesn’t have the processor name, but the listing shows “ARM implementer 81 architecture 8 variant 10 part 2048 revision 1”. This belongs to that of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.
Nokia 8 with Snapdragon 660 SoC
The listing that is believed to be that of the Nokia 8 has the Snapdragon 660 SoC. Earlier this year, we have heard of three high-end Nokia smartphones to make use of the Snapdragon 660 SoC. Maybe, these could be two variants of the Nokia 8.
Nokia 7 to feature Snapdragon 630 SoC
The third smartphone spotted on the GeekBench database seems to have a different processor. The listing shows that the Nokia 7 could be the one to feature the Snapdragon 630 Soc. Earlier, the Nokia 7 was believed to employ the Snapdragon 660 SoC, but this GeekBench listing shows Snapdragon 630 SoC under its hood.
