We can add a new entry to the list of Marvel-themed codenames for HMD phones – Doctor Strange. Unofficially, this phone is expected to be marketed under the name Nokia 3.4 and it is part of the upcoming “.4” series, which includes the Nokia 2.4 (aka Wolverine).
The Nokia 3.4 was spotted in Geekbench results, which list the chipset as “Qualcomm Qualcomm” (that’s not very helpful, is it?). but the score matches the vivo Y20 result – a phone that is expected to be equipped with the new Snapdragon 460 chipset.
The Y20 motherboard was listed as “Bengal”, a name that has been associated with the S662 instead. Both chips are nearly identical, differing mainly in clock speed (the advantage goes to the 662, naturally).
Either way, with four Cortex-A73 based large cores, the Nokia 3.4 is flexing bigger muscles than its 2.4 sibling, which will use the aging Helio P22 chipset instead (with all A53 cores). The 3-series model has more RAM too, 3 GB on the unit that ran the test.
These two Nokias, plus the mid-range 6.3 and 7.3, are expected to be unveiled at IFA, which starts on September 3.
