A new Nokia smartphone is reported to launch in autumn around the month of September. The rumor also claims that the phone is likely to support the latest Snapdragon 710 SoC. The chipset is designed to help bridge the gap between the high-end Snapdragon 845 and the mid-range Snapdragon 660 chipsets.
The news was leaked by Roland Quandt via a tweet, which further reveals that the Nokia phone is codenamed Phoenix, while the Snapdragon 710 chipset is dubbed Bonito. The Snapdragon 710 is a 10nm octa-core processor, which includes two Kryo 360 Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2.2GHz, and six Kryo 360 Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.7GHz. It also uses an Adreno GPU, which is said to perform 35 percent better than the one featured on Snapdragon 660 SoC.
Other features haven’t been mentioned, but the Nokia smartphone is expected to come with a tall 18:9 display and possibly 4GB of RAM. Based on other mid-range Nokia smartphones, there is a good chance that the camera on the new device could boast Zeiss optics. The device will likely be running Android 8.1 Oreo OS out-of-the-box.
