Alleged Nokia 8 and Nokia 9 smartphone sketches reveal bezel-less displays and dual-lens camera
We normally take rumored phones with a bit of caution but, when the rumor happens to be 2 Nokia devices, they need to be reported.
The Former Behemoth
Nokia used to be the biggest phone company in the world. With its only competitor being the Research in Motion owned Blackberry. That too, just in the US. In the rest of the world, no one could even hold a candle to Nokia. Then the iPhone came along and shattered the mobile landscape like never before. It changed the tide to such an extent, that Nokia ended up being bought over by Microsoft.
In 2014, Nokia’s Devices and Services division was sold to Microsoft. In 2016, A Finnish company HMD Global bought a part of Microsoft’s feature phone business and has a licensing agreement that allows it to make smartphones under the Nokia brand. And the expectancy of a full fledged return of the brand has since been eagerly awaited.
The rumored devices in question are the Nokia 8 & Nokia 9. And from the leaked specifications they seem to be powerhouses if rumors are to be believed, both devices will come with Android Nougat 7.0, a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels giving them an approximate 515 pixel density, a massive 12 megapixel front camera and an even bigger 24 megapixel back camera.
Nokia 8 and Nokia 9 are rumored to have Octa-core and Quad-core Qualcomm processor respectively and the screen size with the 8 expected to come in at 5.7 inches while the 9 might be a tad bit smaller at 5.5 inches. Both are expected to sport a humongous 6 GB of RAM. Internal storage options are said to be 64 & 128 GB. Battery are expected to be near the 4000 mAh range.
If these specifications turn out to be true, we might be seeing Nokia compete in the big leagues of Flagship devices. Will the next Galaxy S9 be going head to head against a Nokia ?
