The Nokia 9 would be HMD Global’s first PureView-branded Nokia phone, wherein the special emphasis would be on the imaging prowess of the device. The Nokia 9 has been rumored for quite some time now, more than an year. The key feature of this phone would be the penta-camera setup. Though it might have been scheduled for an announcement at the MWC 2019 next year, according to the rumors, HMD will reportedly do it much earlier.
The smartphone is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, with 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. A recent leak had indicated that it will run Android 9 Pie out of the box with a stock interface and would be powered by a 4,150mAh battery. It would also have water and dust resistant capabilities. The phone has a five camera setup at the back. There are seven rings at the rear end, and five of them are camera lenses, while the sixth is a dual-tone LED flash unit and the seventh just opposite to the flash is expected to be a dual-sensor for proximity detection.
The other aspects of Nokia 9 that are more or less confirmed include the 5.9-inch display with narrow bezels and QHD resolution. There is no notch on the display and neither a fingerprint sensor at the front or even at the back. Nokia could also go for a Face Unlock feature.
