We already know that HMD Global has a Nokia 9 smartphone in the works. And while it has been confirmed that the device won’t be officially launching till next year (2019), there are already several reports and news flying around about the next Nokia flagship.
In a new 5K render and 360° video created and published by two trusted sources (@OnLeaks and 91Mobiles), more design and aesthetic properties of the Nokia 9 were revealed. First off, the concept of the Nokia 9 as seen in the video showcases five cameras on the rear, confirming that the Nokia 9 will most likely be the first device to launch with five sensors on the rear. The closest phone to this feat is the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) with four cameras on the rear.
The device will reportedly measure 155 x 75 x 7.9mm in dimension and will sport a 5.9-inch display with QHD+ resolution in 18:9. Disappointedly, the display isn’t full view as there are huge chunk of bezels on the top and bottom of the display. To add, the device will only have a USB-C port as its only connection port leaving out the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack — just like the Nokia 8 Sirocco.
It is expected that HMD Global will lace the Nokia 9 with the latest version of dust and water-resistant i.e IP68 certification. If not, it would most likely be IP67 certified like the Nokia 8 Sirocco.
The video also revealed that the Nokia 9 will not have the traditional fingerprint scanner on the rear. Instead, the sensor will be built into the display, making the Nokia 9 the first device from the Finnish OEM with in-display fingerprint sensor. Other revelations made about the upcoming flagship from HMD Global include three microphones embedded, glass back with wireless charging support, and a built-in battery capacity of 4,150mAh.
The expected price, internal chipset and storage capacity of the Nokia 9 have been revealed in earlier leaks. There’s no official word from Nokia yet but we expect to see more like image leaks in the coming months before it is announced.
