Nokia 9 Update: Here’s Everything We Know About HMD Global’s Upcoming Flagship Device
HMD Global is expected to launch another flagship device this year. Dubbed as Nokia 9, here are the details that we know about the upcoming smartphone from the Finnish tech company.
Nokia 9 Design
A sophisticated design has been Nokia smartphone’s trademark and it has been carried out until the stewardship was given to HMD Global. As of this moment, there is a scarcity of clues when it regards to the appearance of the Nokia 9; but then, it’s almost guaranteed to flaunt an astounding design.
According to T3, the Nokia 9 would possibly feature a 5.7-inch screen which is quite small seeing the smartphones coming this year 2018. But then, this size is bigger compared to the 5.5-inch display that the Nokia 8 Sirocco has. Aside from that, the fans of the Finnish tech giant can also expect minimal bezels around the side of the handset’s screen. There will also be no display notch since the HMD Global has been unwilling to incorporate notch to any of the firm’s phones in the Nokia line excluding the Nokia X6. But despite that, there is a huge possibility that the fans would see something similar to the metal accents on the Nokia 7 Plus.
When it comes to the materials, the accustomed all-glass sandwich appears to be the best bet. Nonetheless, the engineers and designers who are behind the Nokia 9 would definitely want it to be comfortable to hold; thus, there’s a huge chance that there’ll be some kind of texturing on the back portion of the handset.
Nokia 9 Specs and Features
It can be recalled that the Nokia 8 Sirocco arrived armed with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor; but then, it is expected that the Nokia 9 will be equipped with a processor better than the Snapdragon. As for the RAM department, it’s unlikely that it will be any lower than the 6GB which can be found under the Nokia 8 Sirocco’s chassis. In fact, there is a possibility that the fans might even see an 8GB as an option.
For the Nokia 9 internal storage, it will most probably house a 128GB of memory at least. This is one again based on what is known about previous smartphones from HMD Global. Moreover, the Nokia phones don’t typically come with memory card slots for expansion. With that, if you’re planning to buy a Nokia 9 in the future, you’ll be stuck with whatever internal storage you decide to purchase.
The camera department is considered to another area where previous Nokia flagships have excelled, and with HMD Global registering the PureView trademark once again, the firm is possibly going all-out with the camera of the upcoming Nokia 9. The fans could perhaps expect a dual-lens rear-facing camera that is armed with impressive specs and is proficient enough to offer remarkable photos and videos.
HMD Global is part of the Android One programme and it seems that this will likely continue with the Nokia 9. Seeing the timing of the release, it is safe to assume that the smartphone will be running Android 9 Pie as it comes out of the box. Lastly, it might also have an IP68 rating of protection, a bit better than IP67 protection on the Nokia 8 Sirocco.
As of now, these are the known details about the Nokia 9 and as its release date nears which is rumored to be scheduled in September, October, or November, more details are expected to surface. Stay tuned!
