In addition to this, the front will house a 21-megapixel selfie-camera, provided by ZEISS. Besides this, speculations also point towards an in-display fingerprint scanner since early leaks show no visible sensor at the back.

Still, in line with SuomiMobili’s leak, the new Nokia 9 will be HMD’s biggest handset yet. The new device, according to the specs sheet, will be dropping with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 -similar to current powerful devices available on the market. Besides this, the device is set to ramp up the RAM up to 8GB and the internal storage to 256GB.
