For reference, the Nokia 7.1 plus has a 6.18 inch IPS LCD touchscreen with a pixel density of 408 ppi. The Nokia 8.1 theoretically sits above the Nokia 7.1 Plus or X7 that HMD Global launched recently in China. The appearance of the device on a platform like Geekbench, however, is usually a sign that the launch could take place shortly, possibly a few weeks later. The most recent was the Nokia X7 or the Nokia 7.1 Plus.

The Appy Fizz caller asks Jasleen why she has formed a group with people who have the minimum onscreen presence. After Surabhi Rana, another wild card contestant is all set to enter the house of Bigg Boss Season 12 soon.

First up is the Nokia 3.1 variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage, which will now retail at Rs. 10,999 instead of its old price of Rs. 11,999, a price cut of Rs. 1,000. Geekbench results also reveal that the device has 4 GB of RAM. Incidentally, the Nokia 7.1 Plus too, has the same processor. It is an Octa-core processor, which according to Geekbench has a frequency of 1.71 GHz that is much less than what it is capable of. One of these is the Nokia 8.1, which looks like an updated device compared to the Nokia 8 and has just made its appearance on Geekbench. As for the performance numbers, the HMD Global 8.1 prototype managed a single-core score of 1841 and a multi-core score of 5807. These aren't as impressive as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. Along with the name of the unannounced handset, the listing reveals some of its specs like chipset, RAM and OS version. The good news is this time HMD has decided that it's time to bring a phone to the market that runs Google's latest Android 9 Pie out of the box.
