Nokia 9, HMD Global’s much-anticipated flagship smartphone, has been leaked yet again. This time, the handset’s press renders based on leaks and rumours so far have surfaced on the Internet giving a good idea about the design of the handset. The new renders corroborate previous leaks, showing the Nokia 9 may indeed sport curved display and a dual rear camera setup.
The Nokia 9 mockups also suggest that the handset may sport glass finish at the back, much like the new iPhone 8 series. The new renders also indicate that the Nokia 9 may be the next premium smartphone to ditch the 3.5mm audio jack. We have already seen Google’s latest Pixel phones missing the feature. There’s a fingerprint scanner at the back panel, based on new renders. The renders also show the antenna bands on the side panels instead of the back of the device. The right panel is seen housing both power and volume controls on the alleged Nokia 9. The new renders have been posted by OnLeaks, which has a decent record when it comes to smartphone leaks before actual launch, and Compareraja. Considering the new renders are based on leaks, we can expect to see changes in the product when it launches.
Previous leaks have suggested that the Nokia 9 may come in 6GB and 8GB RAM options. Other rumoured specifications include IP68 certification and 128GB inbuilt storage. The leaks have also hinted that the Nokia 9 may be the company’s first to sport an iris scanner.
Not too long ago, Nokia 9 was reportedly spotted on the company’s website and seemingly showed the handset in promotional image. Nokia 9 is expected to be priced starting at EUR 750 (roughly Rs. 55,100) – a price that will see it compete with flagships from other companies such as Samsung and Apple. Other rumoured specifications include a dual camera setup at the back with two 13-megapixel Zeiss sensors with dual-LED flash support. It is said to sport a 5.5-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display and be powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC.
