A new Honor phone with model number RMO-NX1 has appeared in the database of Geekbench. The listing shows that it runs on a Qualcomm chip with the part number SM6375, which means it is powered by the Snapdragon 695 mobile platform.

The device can run on the Android 12 OS, which will be overlaid with the Magic UI when it arrives on the market. The SoC is paired with 8GB of RAM. The device scored 669 points in the single-core test and 1930 points in the multi-core test of Geekbench 5.
