A Geekbench listing of the Nokia 5 smartphone with Android 9 Pie OS has appeared today.
The new listing suggests that the company could be internally testing the Nokia 5 with Android 9 Pie. Hopefully, the new software update will be made available for the smartphone within the first quarter of 2019.
The Nokia 5 Geekbench appearance reveals that it is running on Android 9. The smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 430 SoC. There seems to be some error in the RAM field as it shows 4GB RAM on the listing whereas the handset was only made available in 2 GB and 3 GB RAM editions.

In single-core test of Geekbench, the Android 9 powered Nokia 5 has scored 633. The multi-core score of 2231 seems to be a bit low compared to other Nokia 5 Geekbench listings which have 2700 to 2900 score. Leaked information that had surfaced at the beginning of the year had revealed that the Android 9 software upgrade for the smartphone will include Pro Camera mode.
