Nokia 9 renders leak, show bezel-less design with curved glass back
HMD Global is expected to add two more smartphones to its 2017 Nokia product lineup. The Nokia 9 is expected to be a premium flagship from the company while the Nokia 2 is believed to be an entry-level offering. The design of both the smartphones leaked last month and more renders of the Nokia 9 have made its way online.
The Nokia 9 is expected to be a true flagship from the company, one aimed to compete against the Samsung Galaxy S8, Note 8, Apple iPhone X and Google’s Pixel 2 XL. It is expected to sport a bezel-less design but may not stretch to its edges. The leaked render show the device sporting a curved AMOLED display up front and a curved glass at the back. It is expected to feature dual rear cameras with Zeiss optics, similar to the Nokia 8. The fingerprint sensor has been moved from the front to the rear as well.
A leaked GFXBench listing suggested that the Nokia 9 will sport a 5.3-inch Quad HD display but it now seems likely to feature a slightly larger display. It is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 platform and will be available in 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM variants, with 128GB standard storage. The flagship smartphone might support IP68 water and dust resistance and also include an Iris scanner.
The Nokia 9 has leaked in polished copper and polished blue colour variants. The device is expected to retail at around €749 (around Rs 57,500) in Europe and is expected to become available later this year.
