While some were filled with joy when Nokia relaunched this year with Android, some fans were disappointed to not see a flagship model. There have been rumors that HMD Global will bring some high-end Nokia smartphone soon, but the question is, when?
It is speculated that Nokia 8 and Nokia 9 will be the high-tier offerings, and thanks to some alleged leaked images, we know how the Nokia 9 might turn out to be.
A prototype unit of the Nokia 9 has reached the folks at frandroid.com. The handset is inside a chunky case to keep the final design a secret. But we can still see some of the features. There's a USB Type-C port, as well as a headphone jack. The display measures at 5.27-inches and has a QHD resolution as it is visible from the pictures.
Reviewers say that the the display offers 530-nits of brightness and there is an always on feature as well. Rest of the features include a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage and Android 7.1.1 with a blue colored Pixel-like launcher. The handset is said to come bundled with a pair of earbuds and a Quick Charge 3.0 fast charger.
The most exciting feature though is the dual-lens camera. These are two 13 MP units with a dual LED flash and possibly laser auto-focus as well. There is no Carl Zeiss branding, so that is a bummer.
There is also a rumor that it could carry a price tag of about $700 ( Rs 46,000 approx) which is similar to a previous leak that suggested the Nokia 9 will arrive by Q3 with a Rs 44,900 price tag.
