Nokia 9 is not yet ready to make its official appearance but its leaks are starting to rise. The latest entry in the Nokia 9 leak chain, is this concept video based on the leaks provided last week. Let’s see…
HMD Global has created quite a reputation for Nokia smartphones this year. Bringing back the Nokia 3310, and launching the Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 8 smartphones, the company has left fans wanting for more.
Rumors for HMD Global’s next flagship smartphone, the Nokia 9 have been showing up now and then. The Nokia 9 is imagined with a dual-camera setup, no 3.5mm audio jack, and a curved edge display in a metal unibody. The Nokia 9′s display appears quite large and has curved edges similar to the Galaxy S7 edge. The top and bottom bezels are also comparatively thin.
There’s a speaker grille/earpiece at the top and the front camera, and no presence of a Home button. On the bottom panel, a USB Type-C port is visible with an antenna band and speakers.
The power button and volume rocker sit on the right side, while the SIM slot is located on the left panel. Both sides have antenna lines as well. At the rear the dual-camera setup is placed vertically and has a bit of a bump. A fingerprint sensor is placed below the dual-camera setup, along with the Nokia branding running down below.
Although only a concept render, the Nokia 9 does sport a premium look if we go by this. It is expected to succeed the Nokia 8, and will possibly be launched next year. As far as specifications are concerned, the Nokia 9 is expected to come with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It is also rumored that the Nokia 9 will feature IP68 rating for water and dust resistance.
For photography, the dual-camera setup at the rear will possibly be ZEISS engineered as seen in the Nokia 8. In addition to the curved display, the Nokia 9 could also feature a glass topping which leads to the speculation of wireless charging. Also, there are rumors of iris scanning on the Nokia 9.
HMD seems set to leave the Nokia 8 as the bellwether of its 2017 lineup, so the Nokia 9 is probably coming our way in early 2018.
