Now, the smartphone has appeared on Geekbench, revealing some of its key specifications. The listing shows that the device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE octa-core processor. It is paired with 6 GB of RAM and is running Android 9 Pie operating system out of the box.

It will come with a triple rear camera setup, consisting of a 48 MP primary sensor with ZEISS optics. There will be a 120-degree super wide-angle secondary sensor but there’s no information available about the third camera sensor. However, the global variant of the phone, named Nokia 8.1 Plus, will come with a dual rear camera setup.

If rumors are to be believed, then the Nokia X71 will be the Finnish company’s first smartphone to come with a punch-hole display. It is expected to come with a 6.22-inch Full HD+ resolution display.

However, it’s strange to see the Nokia X71 powered by Snapdragon 660 SoC as the Nokia 8.1 has Snapdragon 710 chipset. There’s a possibility that the Nokia 8.1 Plus will have SD710 SoC but the Taiwan-only variant packs SD660 SoC. We’ll get to know for sure in the coming days when the phone gets official on 2nd April.
