Today, a new Nokia smartphone with the name of yet another Marvel character called ‘Quicksilver’ appeared on Geekbench. The device was tested for a crazy amount of times, i.e, about twelve times, with Android 11 and 6 GB RAM. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm ARMv8 processor with a base frequency of 1.8 GHz. Among the twelve tests, Nokia Quicksilver scored 1500 in multi-core and 471 in single-core tests at its best.
The processor in question is most probably the new Snapdragon 480 5G because the recently announced OPPO A93 5G was also spotted on Geekbench with the same identifier, ‘ARM implementer 81 architecture 8 variant 8 part 2052 revision 14’. Qualcomm in its press release for Snapdragon 480 5G also said that they expect 5G smartphones with the said processor from Nokia Mobile, OnePlus, OPPO, and Vivo in early 2021. So the Snapdragon 480 5G processor in Nokia Quicksilver makes sense.
That means Nokia Quicksilver is possibly an affordable 5G smartphone as Nokia Mobile has probably mentioned in its every interview in 2020 that they plan to bring 5G to the budget segment in more countries this year. The device might ship with one of the newly certified batteries, which are WT340 (5050 mAh) and CN110 (4470 mAh). Also, Nokia Mobile has Nokia 1.4 in the pipeline for a sooner launch as well.
