HMD Global has already launched several Nokia-branded smartphones worldwide at different price points. At the moment, Nokia 8 is the latest flagship device from the company that boasts top-notch hardware and amazing near-stock Android features. However, a next-gen Nokia flagship called the Nokia 9 is rumoured to be in the making.
The rumours about the Nokia 9 smartphone have been there for a while. The upcoming Nokia mobile is most likely to offer a bezel-less display and dual rear camera setup as these are the popular trends nowadays. The phone is speculated to get launched on January 19, 2018.
HMD Global hasn’t put a word about the specifications and other details of the Nokia 9 smartphone; however, the previous rumours and leaks have already revealed much about the alleged Nokia flagship handset.
Nokia 9: Design
The Bezel-less displays with 18:9 aspect ratio have become a trend among flagship handsets. The recently leaked render of Nokia 9 suggested that the handset won’t be an exception to this popular trend. Furthermore, several reports are suggesting that Nokia 9 will sport a dual edge curved display similar to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone. However, the display will support an 18:9 aspect ratio.
The existing Nokia 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 8 models have been built with polycarbonate and full metal featuring unibody designs. Also, Nokia 7 has offered curved glass design on front and rear panel. So, the upcoming Nokia mobile is also likely to come with similar design language.
Nokia 9: Hardware
Coming to the specifications, the upcoming Nokia mobile is expected to feature a 5.5-inch Quad-HD display. It will be backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with 6GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, an option to expand the storage via microSD card slot. The handset will have a 3250mAh battery with fast charging technology.
Like every flagship smartphone, the Nokia 9 model will pack a dual rear camera setup. Nokia has recently revised its camera app which now provides support for wide-angle and telephoto zoom. Furthermore, on Nokia 8, the company has provided a combination of an RGB sensor and a monochrome sensor. It suggests that the camera setup on Nokia 9 will support DSLR-like Bokeh effect functions if the telephoto lens will be there.
