Recently, a Nokia model code-named “Quiksilver” appeared on the Geekbench platform.
From the test information, we can see that the new Nokia machine is equipped with the Snapdragon 690 processor. It has a single-core test score of 471 points and a multi-core test score of 1500 points. In addition, the machine uses a 2GB + 6GB storage combination and runs Android 11 system.
