We benchmark the Snapdragon 660 inside the Nokia 7 Plus

The Nokia 7 Plus is one of the few phones with a Snapdragon 660 so it was hard finding it a match for a few synthetic tests. The Oppo R11s is the only other Snapdragon 660-powered phone in the tests below. The Nokia 7 Plus has 4GB of RAM and Nokia is yet to say if there will be a 6GB model.

The Snapdragon 660 chip relies on 8 Kryo 260 cores – four clocked as high as 2.2GHz and another 4 that go as high as 1.8GHz – and is built around an efficient 14nm process. As with the camera, we’ll withhold judgment on the benchmarks as well. This is all preliminary, folks!
