Design Nokia 9 Appears
HMD flagship Nokia 9 smartphone was recently allocated on Geekbench and now the smartphone’s design has been leaked in renders. In the renders, the Nokia 9 can be seen sporting glass back as well as feature near bezel-less design at the front of the display. Notably, the handset can be seen sporting dual rear cameras in the renders as well.
Talking first about the front of the smartphone, the renders shared by Waqar Khan suggest that the Nokia 9 smartphone will feature a nearly bezel-less design at the front, which shouldn’t come as a surprise as it has become an industry-wide trend this year. The upcoming smartphone can also be seen with 3D glass back design in the leaked renders.
The handset has been tipped to come with dual rear cameras in vertical orientation and fingerprint sensor can be seen right below the camera module in the center. In the leaked renders, the alleged Nokia 9 smartphone can be seen in Copper Gold color.
Moving on to the separately leaked render, the alleged image of Nokia 9 have been shared on a Chinese website and suggest similar design to the one that can be seen in the renders shared by Waqar Khan. In the image, the smartphone can be seen right alongside the nokia2 smartphone, which has not been announced by the company as yet as well. In comparison, Nokia 9 seems to come with a larger frame and feature glass back, which is missing on the Nokia 2.
Nokia 9 may feature a Snapdragon 835 processor, either 6 or 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. According to NPU sources, Nokia 9 will likely to retail for €749 (or approx Rs 57,282). In comparison, Nokia 8 is priced at €599 (or approx Rs 45,812).
- The release date of Nokia 9 is unknown at the moment, but it’s being speculated that the launch could happen sometime later this year. When announced, Nokia 9 will go head to head with Apple’s iPhone x, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8, Google Nexus and XIOMI’s Mi Mix 2.
- Other than the high-end Nokia 9, the Finnish company HMD Global might be working on Nokia 2. Obviously, the latter phone will be a budget device. All thanks to noted leaker Evan Blass, we recently saw alleged renders of the low-end Android smartphone.
From the image above, you can see that there is a 3D glass back design tipping that the smartphone might support wireless charging. The display is believed to be an OLED panel as we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+, Apple iPhone X, and a few other flagship models. Like the Nokia 8, the Nokia 9 is also claimed to feature a dual camera setup with the two lenses positioned vertically along with the Carl Zeiss branding. We can expect this camera to be more capable than that of the Nokia 8.
According to the existing rumors, the Nokia 9 is believed to arrive with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB storage capacity. The smartphone might come with the IP68 rating that will make it both dust and water resistant. There could be an iris scanner as well for security reasons. The image shows the presence of a fingerprint scanner at the rear below the camera.
