With rumors swirling around, HMD has been speculated to develop its upcoming Ultra-budget smartphone dubbed as Nokia 2. Recently, the handset has passed through Geekbench, the benchmarking website unveiling the hardware features of Nokia 2, although the smartphone name has been revealed.

However, if the recently leaked specs are to be believed as Nokia 2, then its release might get unveiled shortly. As per Geekbench, the “Unknown Heart” (alleged Nokia 2) is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.27 GHz.
As per the previous leaks, Nokia 2 was anticipated to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 system-on-chip (SoC), it suggests that the upcoming smartphone might be powered by the second version of the chip that released in 2015 which is the Snapdragon 212 housing four ARM Cortex-A7 cores clocked at up to 1.3 GHz.

Furthermore, the spotted device on Geekbench suggests itself run Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. In a single core test, Nokia 2 has scored 422 points, whereas talking about multicore benchmarks, the smartphone company scored 1,146 points.
