A mystery HMD Global smartphone with the codename Nokia Quicksilver has appeared on the website of benchmarking platform Geekbench. The listing reveals the smartphone will feature 6GB of RAM and run Android 11 operating system. Other than that, the Nokia Quicksilver listing shows the smartphone will be powered by a 1.8GHz chipset that has not been named. Going by the scores – 466 for single-core and 1487 for multi-core – it seems that Nokia Quicksilver might be powered by a budget processor, likely the new Snapdragon 480 5G chipset. That’s pretty much all we know about this smartphone at the moment.
While it is rare to see an affordable Nokia smartphone with 6GB RAM, it is not unheard of. Moreover, the recently-launched OPPO A93 5G is also powered by Snapdragon 480 SoC, paired with 8GB of RAM. That smartphone had posted similar scores on Geekbench recently.
