Nokia 9 rumoured to launch in Q3 2017 with a price tag of Rs 44,999

The flagship smartphone from Nokia could see the light only after July-August.

Just last week we heard of a new high-end Nokia smartphone that is expected to arrive this year. Today we have some more scoop on the device.

According to the same source that leaked the info about Nokia 9, the flagship smartphone will be unveiled by the end of July or by early August and will be launched by Q3 or even later. The launch delay is said to be because of the availability Snapdragon 835 chipset.

The price expected for the smartphone is somewhere around EUR 749 in European markets while US pricing will be $699. However, the Indian pricing is rumoured to be Rs 44,999.

In case you missed, the Nokia 9 is expected to sport a 5.5-inch QHD OLED display panel running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with Adreno 540 GPU. The quality German glass made by Carl-Zeiss used by original Nokia is expected to make a comeback with Nokia 9 where 22 MP Dual-lens camera module will be equipped with Carl-Zeiss optics and a 12 MP front camera. Nokia 9 will come with 6 GB RAM and two storage variants of 64 GB and 128 GB internal storage. The smartphone will sport a 3,800 mAh battery along with Qualcomm Quick-Charge 4 support.

HMD Global will also include an Iris scanner like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ in addition to the usual fingerprint scanner. Nokia 9 is also expected to come with IP68 certification along with Nokia OZO audio enhancements.

Of course, these are only speculations and should be taken with a grain of salt.
