We’ve already seen some leaked photos that allegedly showed us the Nokia 9, encased in a “black box” that was hiding most of its design. However, what we didn’t know is how the handset will actually perform.

This might have just changed, as a device that is allegedly the Nokia 9 has been spotted in the database of the popular smartphone benchmarking app, Geekbench. Admittedly, the tests were done with an older version of the app, namely Geekbench 3, while most users have long migrated to the latest Geekbench 4, but if it’s the real thing, its results are not less impressive.

The listing …
