New features, release date, price and other details of Nokia 9 revealed
HMD Global’s upcoming flagship, Nokia 9 has been in the news over the last few weeks due to its leaked designs, rumored specifications, pricing and release date. However, this time around, first hands-on pictures that appear to be a prototype of the smartphone have just emerged at frandroid.com, a French online publication.
According to the reports that were leaked and pictures that were published at frandroid.com, the device is said to feature a USB Type-C port, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack and 13MP dual-lens camera with laser assisted autofocus. The report reveals that the device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory.
As opposed to earlier reports that claimed Nokia 9 would sport a 5.5-inch QHD OLED display, it would now instead have a 5.3-inch (actually 5.27) WQHD display with 2560 x 1440 resolution and screen density of 557 dpi. An Always On feature has also been implemented. Nokia 9 runs on Android Nougat 7.1.1 operating system and will support Quick Charge 3.0 charging technology. The flagship will come with a pair of earbuds, and is also expected to come with features like an IP68 water-and-dust resistant certification, a fingerprint scanner, an iris scanner, and an OZO audio.
The leak also suggests the smartphone will have aluminium build and come with a price tag of $699/€749. Also, the Nokia 9 is rumoured to be released in either late July or early August.
