Nokia 9 variant TA-1012 now spotted with 6GB RAM on Geekbench. What does this mean??

We last reported about Nokia 9 variant TA-1012 appearing in Geekbench listings with 4GB RAM and Snapdrahon 835. But, as we have been telling you via our sources that Nokia 9 will pack minimum 6GB RAM, it now has appeared with 6GB RAM in latest results.

There are many very recent Geekbench entries where TA-1012 shows up with 6GB RAM and there are some in which it still appears with 4GB RAM. So, we can take that to be a prototype thing and it may very well show that Nokia 9 will ultimately come with 6GB RAM. Same product variants usually don’t appear in two different RAM configurations.

We exclusively reported about Nokia 9 variant TA-1012 appearing in EA Union certification. TA-1004 and TA-1012 had appeared as a pair in the EA Union certification. We also reported about TA-1004 appearing in FCC certification and thereby confirming its display size of 5.3-inch and its Dual-SIM support. This mean that TA-1012 will be a Single-SIM variant.

An 8GB RAM variant of Nokia 9 too has appeared on Geekbench. A previously unknown variant of Nokia 9 TA-1052 also appeared in the Benchmark listing. This one also has 4 GB RAM and of course, runs Snapdragon 835.

In case you want to check how it may look like you can read our article here. Here are some probable Nokia 9 collated specs as per input from our sources and leaks.

    they don’t stand a chance if they can’t better the one plus five

      This particular version of Nokia 9 destroys OP 5 (IP7+ design with mediocre camera at best) at Geekbench. I don’t like synthetic benchmark (OP 5 was caught cheating at it) but this shows Nokia 9 as possibly the strongest Android flagship at the moment.

      • Allen

        Not if HMD still sticks to dual 13 mp camera. My 950 xl takes better photos than the latest and greatest out there and it’s bloody Microsoft. Op5, even if it is lacking OIS and stuff, still takes good photos with 13 + 20 mp dual camera.

        • Nguyen Manh

          It’s all about sensor size, lens and software algorithms- hell even old 12MP DSLRs take wonderful pictures with adequate lens. “Good pictures” taken by phones nowadays mean “mediocre pictures, heavily post-processed to be more eye-catching” which is just good enough for most occassions. I don’t expect Nokia to do much better (no more 808/1020, Carl Zeiss lens not confirmed) but who knows. A few month ago they even denied any flagship currently in development. BTW I was talking about hardware performance in which this Nokia 9 variant seems to excel.

          • Allen

            Hardware isn’t just about RAM and memory; aesthetics, audio (speakers & headphone), battery life, bluetooth connectivity, WIFI, camera etc. Cheating on benchmarks isn’t anything new when it comes android phone; even so I haven’t read or seen anyone complain in regards to the performance of the OP5. It still runs smoothly with minimum lag. OP5 has been with reviewers for close two weeks now with embargo placed on them till the OP5 global reveal

            From what has so far been revealed about Nokia “high end”, it has nothing but prototypes and rumors. IMO, I rather have HMD release a high end phones with the works with the latest Bluetooth, 23 MP cameras with better tech; something different, something eye catching in a limited quantity than an average high end phones when better phones can be obtained at a better price. Everyone is tired of the candy bar phones.

      1440p AMOLED vs 1080p.
      IP68 Water / Dust resistant
      MicroSD card support
      standard Qualcomm fast charging vs Dash proprietary charging

      Already better. DONE.

      I’ve never been impressed by OnePlus. For a company who’s motto is “never settle”, they have never released a true top tier spec phone yet. Tons of hardware spec compromises. One model didn’t even have NFC, when every top tier phone always has NFC. Just like every top tier manufacturer (Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG, Motorola — heck even budget ZTE) offers 1440p or better. Samsung even gives you the choice to run 1080p if you wish, or go to default 1440p native resolution.

      No IP68 Water / Dust resistant: this is fairly standard now among all top tier phones. OnePlus is a pretender.

      No MicroSD card support: My current phone doesn’t have this, but LG, Samsung offer this and it’s a point in their favor. And points against any phone that doesn’t offer it.

      Proprietary fast charging: I have many Qualcomm chargers, which are available on Amazon/eBay for low prices. I’m not buying any proprietary crap which costs a ton of money.
