HMD’s Latest Phone ‘Tomcat’ Spotted on Geekbench

HMD, the company behind Nokia, recently introduced three new affordable smartphones under its own brand focused on repairability – the Pulse, Pulse+, and Pulse Pro. These devices feature the UNISOC T606 processor. However, an intriguing development follows the launch of these entry-level phones, as a recent GeekBench listing hints at a more potent device in the works.

HMD Global Tomcat: A Potential Powerhouse

HMD's upcoming phone, codenamed 'Tomcat,' has surfaced on the Geekbench benchmark platform, achieving scores of 965 in single-core performance and 2625 in multi-core tasks. The listing discloses that this phone houses an octa-core processor with a 4+4 core configuration, boasting base frequencies of 1.96GHz and 2.4GHz.

Snapdragon 7s Gen 2: The Probable Engine

Although the chipset's name remains undisclosed in the listing, the specifications align closely with the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2. This chipset purportedly features 4x Cortex-A78 and 4x Cortex-A55 cores, along with an Adreno 710 GPU. Manufactured using a 4nm process, this Qualcomm offering supports a 200MP camera sensor, 4K video recording at 30fps, 1080p video recording at 120fps, and Multi-frame HDR capabilities, subject to the device manufacturer's implementation.

While not classified as a top-tier chipset, the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 stands significantly superior in performance when compared to processors like the UNISOC T606 or Snapdragon 680. This potential mid-to-high-end smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 could be positioned akin to the Nokia 8.3 released in 2020, which featured the Snapdragon 765G 5G chipset.
