HMD Global will be launching Nokia 9 sometime later this year. Ahead of its official launch, the device has been leaked multiple times. Nokia 9 is supposed to be the company’s next flagship. In the latest development, a new image of the device has been leaked that reveals some important details.
Nokia 9 to Come with a Massive Battery, Penta Camera Set Up
The leaked image shows that Nokia 9 may sport a massive 4150mAh battery and a Penta-Lens camera set up, which will make it the first smartphone to feature 5 cameras at the back. While the earlier leaks already confirmed that the Nokia smartphone will have Penta-camera setup, the latest one reveals how the set up would look like.
Nokia 9: What do we Know So Far?
Nokia 9 will be the first smartphone to feature 5 different cameras at the back. The leaked image reveals that the five cameras will be arranged in a ring-style pattern, while three sensors will be vertically aligned and the other two placed on either side. All these sensors will sport “Zeiss branding” and will function according to Zeiss’ patented “Miniature zoom camera” technology. As per the patent mechanism, the primary wide-angle lens will serve as a constant image sensor while the remaining sensors will revolve around it to create a zoom effect. The sensors on the Nokia smartphone might come up with variable focal lengths.
The Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, Juho Sarvikas took it to Twitter to tease his recent visit to Zeiss lab. This could be related to the development of the camera technology on the Nokia 9.
Nokia 9: Spotted in Samsung’s Buyback Program List
The upcoming Nokia 9 was recently spotted in the Samsung’s Buyback Program list of eligible smartphones. The program belongs to the Latvian Samsung website and the Nokia 9 made an appearance in the list of eligible smartphones that could be exchanged for a new Samsung device. This could totally be a mistake or the company tipped off the Latvian website to tease the Nokia smartphone.
Anyway, the buyback program mentioned two variants of the Nokia 9 one with 64GB of onboard storage and one more with 128GB internal memory. The list also mentioned the money you save on exchange, and for Nokia 9, it was around €292. This translates to a sum of Rs. 24,500. Estimating from this amount, we expect the actual pricing of the upcoming Nokia smartphone to be somewhere around Rs. 40,000.
In terms of specifications, the Nokia 9 is expected to feature a 5.9-inch OLED display with Quad HD+ resolution. The device could use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, paired with 8GB RAM. The Nokia 9 is also expected to support wireless charging and fast charging options. The device is most likely to feature the new Android 9.0 Pie operating system.
We have been expecting HMD Global to launch new flagship smartphone for a while now. Earlier it was reported that the company could announce the smartphone at the IFA 2018 in Berlin, which didn’t happen. Again, there are rumors that the Nokia smartphone will arrive by the end of this month.
Apart from the teased tidbits, HMD Global has not officially confirmed anything about the device or denied its existence. The company has not commented on the rumours either or revealed any specification. Earlier, a Nokia smartphone with model number TA-094, receiving the MIIT certification in China surfaced. This device is rumoured to be the Nokia 9, which means it could be out soon. After all these leaks, we still don’t have much information to make a complete picture of the device. We will have to wait for the company to announce something substantial regarding the upcoming smartphone or there could always be bigger leaks. Either way, we will keep you posted.
