It is no exaggeration to say that the Nokia 9 is the flagship most Nokia fans have been waiting for. The unannounced smartphone is rumored since 2017, many hope it had already been published. Thanks to Nokia PowerUser, we know that the device is still part of the HMD roadmap this year.
HMD wants this series of phones to be the best deal in their lineup. For this reason, the rumor from last year was not published under the 9-series. According to Nokia PowerUser, the Nokia 9 rumors for 2017 was actually the Nokia 8 Sirocco, which was announced during Mobile World Congress 2018. Therefore, to get you accurate information, we read all the rumors, eliminating Nokia 8 Sirocco, and presenting all the information we know about the launch of Nokia 9 this year
- Operating system: Android 9.0 P
- CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 845
- GPU: Adreno 630 [1
- Display: 5,7 "2880 x 1440p POLED
- Rear Cameras: ZEISS co-developed Penta Lens Cameras
- Frontal Cameras: Dual Cameras
- Fingerprint Scanners: In-Display
It looks like HMD hopes to reduce the overall size of the device while maximizing the actual size of the display. In the footsteps of Apple's iPhone X HMD will therefore have a recess for the two front-facing cameras and speakers.
While some rumors point to a 5.7-inch display, on the following images it looks like the upcoming one The phone will be closer to 6 "than 5.7" while it has a smaller footprint. We expect an OLED panel to be used to match their current high-end Nokia 8 Sirocco offering.
WinFuture announces this LG Display delivers the OLED panel for the Nokia 9. Therefore, the upcoming flagship will use a POLED panel, the controversial display of the LG V30 and Pixel 2 XL. Hopefully LG will fix the problem with the whole game that was plagued last year
In-Display Fingerprint Scanner
In addition to using the notch to reduce the overall size of the device, Nokia will also introduce an in-display Fingerprint scanner included to keep the bezels small while the fingerprint scanner in the front panel With this technology, there is only one phone on the market: the Vivo X20 Plus UD a midrange device only available in China.
Based on rumors about other key flagships, all major OEMs will carry on the technology until next year, so that the Nokia 9 will be the first US flagship with the technology.
ZEISS Penta-Lens reversing camera with different zoom capability
There are rumors that HMD and Foxconn are currently developing a "Penta Lens" camera with five lenses for the rear view camera. This rumor is not so far-fetched, because Nokia could achieve a similar development with the Nokia 808 PureView – a 41-MP-Handy at that time was unimaginable.
Based on a ZEISS patent for a "miniature zoom camera", only the two lenses are visible to the consumer. For the RGB sensor, however, will turn a "wheel" that contains the other four lenses. Each lens has a different focal length, allowing different degrees of optical zoom for the main sensor. The second visible lens will be a monochrome lens that improves sharpness and helps in depth.
According to rumors, the technology is at an early stage of development, so this rumor is not as strong as previously mentioned. There is still a chance that this will appear on the Nokia 9 later this year. In addition, WinFuture reports that HMD internally classifies the Nokia 9 camera as "high risk". Ideally, this should translate to something else and "funky", which increases the possibility that Penta lens system will occur.
Price & Availability  According to Nokia PowerUser, Nokia 9 is expected to arrive in September 2018. This announcement date would be around the launch of the latest iPhones and shortly before the announcement of the Pixel 3 series. A second leak from WinFuture shows that production started in February 2018, with a start in August or September 2018.
According to WinFuture, it will also have Android P on board, giving us some idea of the release date. Google's Android P timeline suggests an early August release date for the final public version of Android P so that the Nokia 9 could come anytime afterward. There is also the possibility that Google may use a piece from its own playbook and Nokia may release the first mobile phone with the new version before the new Pixel debuts (as in 2016, when the LG V20 launched the first Nougat device from Android 7.0 was).
The Nokia 9 is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S9 +, which is currently sold for 840 US dollars, sold in the United States. This price would make sense, since it should be cheaper than the upcoming Apple products and the larger pixel device.
The Nokia 9 is said to be the newest and best from HMD. Based on the little rumors we know, it should be the phone we've been expecting ever since HMD acquired Nokia's helmets from Nokia. What do you think about the Nokia 9? Which feature appealed to you the most? Let us know in the comments below.
