Another Nokia smartphone, dubbed Nokia Pixel, had been recently spotted on benchmarking website Geekbench, which revealed its key specifications and features. Although the benchmarks hint at an entry-level smartphone, there have been leaks which suggest that Nokia could choose to reveal a premium variant of the same model. The purported Nokia Pixel smartphone is likely to boast premium features in terms of display and camera quality.

Based on the leaks, the smartphone will boast a quad HD resolution display, and Snapdragon 835 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM. It could further come with a 23-megapixel Carl Zeiss rear camera with LED flash and 4K recording capabilities. It is further expected to sport a metal unibody design and have water-resistant capabilities. In terms of connectivity, it will come equipped with support for 4G LTE, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11ac. Till now, there haven t been any details about the battery capacity, however, it is rumored to support Quick Charge 3.0 technology. Based on the speculations, prices of the premium-variant could start at Rs 30,000 approximately.

The third Nokia smartphone, dubbed Nokia Z2 Plus, has also been spotted on benchmarking website Geekbench. Based on the leaks, the smartphone achieves a single-core test score of 2,156 and a multi-core test score of 5,217. The details further reveal that the Nokia Z2 Plus will come powered by a Qualcomm quad-core processor clocked at 1.77GHz. The motherboard is listed as MSM8996, or in other words, Qualcomm s Snapdragon 820 chipset. Running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, the smartphone is further listed as having 4GB of RAM.

While all of these are speculations and one needs to wait for the official word to substantiate the claims, it would be interesting to see how well Nokia places these smartphone in the market where it will make a comeback after two years of sabbatical.
