Nokia Heart Android smartphone appears in benchmark

Nokia’s new Android smartphone, the Nokia 6 (pictured above), sold out in a single minute after it made its debut in China. The company is expected to announce at least one more new Android smartphone, likely more, during Mobile World Congress next month. One such device may be the Nokia Heart, which recently surfaced on GFXBench.

Spotted by MobileKaPrice, the benchmark points to a decidedly entry-level smartphone with a 5.2-inch 1280 x 720-pixel display, an octa-core Qualcomm processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (listed as 9, but we’re assuming it’s more) and a 12-megapixel camera. That doesn’t sound all that exciting, but it’s likely bound to emerging smartphone markets. Also, it runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, which runs pretty well on lower-end hardware so long as there isn’t much bloatware.


Very entry-level

We don’t know what this will cost or when it’ll hit the market. My guess is something this entry-level won’t ever make its way to the US. If it does, Nokia’s going to have a hard time charging more than $100 or so for that type of hardware.
