HMD Global has been teasing the launch of their flagship NOKIA phones since the launch of the NOKIA 6, NOKIA 5 and NOKIA 3. The Finnish brand that currently holds the rights to manufacture and market NOKIA devices has also resurrected the NOKIA 3310 feature phone with an eye for nostalgia buyers, emerging markets and as a cheap secondary in certain Western markets. Today, images of the NOKIA 9 surfaced on FrAndroid alongside pictures claimed to be taken from the same device.
The article over at FrAndroid shows various aspects of the NOKIA 9 which is packed inside a “black box” to prevent a design leak before the official reveal. These images confirmed the presence of a dual camera primary setup at the rear of the device. Although there is no fingerprint scanner on the device, a different shot shows a home button which might integrate the same flanked with capacitive buttons for UI manipulation. The handset has a 3.5mm audio jack and a USB Type-C port for hardware interconnectivity.
From images of the settings screen, we can also glean that the NOKIA 9 has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage coupled with an as of now unspecified Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC at the heart of it. These images also confirm that the device has a 5.3-inch Quad-HD (1440 x2560) resolution display. On the OS front, it seems that the NOKIA 9 will be running a minimally skinned flavour of Android v.7.1.1, Nougat. As of now HMD Global has not revealed when it will be releasing the handset apart from mentioning that it plans to launch several smartphones in the latter half of 2017.
