HMD Global is planning on launching quite a few smartphones. However, most of them are still under wraps and just a few are known by their names. The latest Nokia XR20 is one such device. The device has made an appearance on the Geekbench benchmarking website. The listing shows the device’s model number alongside a couple of other things.
Sadly, the Geekbench listing of a smartphone does not really provide the full specifications list of the device. However, the processor and amount of RAM the device will come with is listed. We can derive a couple of things from the amount of information we have on this smartphone.
Nokia XR20 Specifications (Listed)
As mentioned before, there is not really much to go by here. However, the RAM and processor details of the device have been listed. For starters, the Nokia XR20 will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G SoC. Additionally, this octa-core chipset will be powered by 4GB RAM. The upcoming Nokia smartphone is also listed to run on Android 11.
Furthermore, the smartphone scores a 510 in single-core and 1227 in multi-core performance. This is actually pretty decent for the affordable price range that it might be launching in.
What To Expect?
The important thing to note here is that the Nokia XR20 chipset comes with 5G connectivity. Also, going by the fact that the Snapdragon 480 SoC is a chipset used in budget friendly devices, it has the potential to be a one of the most affordable 5G smartphones out there upon release.
Coming to the processor, the Snapdragon 480 SoC is actually a great processor. It has a significantly better AnTuTu benchmark score than the Snapdragon 625 SoC. Moreover, it comes with a 128% higher memory bandwidth than the Snapdragon 625 SoC. The usage of this processor in the Nokia XR20 shows great potential. Moreover, it is a 5G chipset, which makes it even better.
However, if you are someone who is looking for heavy gaming, this mobile might be a no no. It is important to understand that the Snapdragon 480 SoC can easily get you through light gaming. However, during intense gaming sessions, the card will definitely show terrible frame drops. Especially for Battle Royale’s like the upcoming Battlegrounds India and the COD Mobile BR, it won’t be enough.
However, if you are a casual gamer and you need it for primarily getting through your daily social media usage, it will be an excellent offering.
