Here's what the render tells us about Nokia 9's design
Up front, the Nokia 9 is likely to feature a notch based display with ultra-small bezels on the sides and a slimmer-yet-noticeable bottom chin. On the back, the phone is expected to have a glass back that will house the five-camera setup and a flash module. Notably, previous reports have suggested that Nokia 9 will get a 6.01-inch display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
About the penta-camera setup on Nokia 9
Additionally, a hands-on image of an alleged Nokia 9 was leaked in China. The image shows a one-of-its-kind camera array with 5 lenses, a flash module and possibly an IR focusing equipment. Moreover, the image shows ZEISS branding, meaning the camera optics would be premium. Notably, all camera cut-outs on Nokia 9 appear to be flush with the screen rather than being protruding.
What else do we know about Nokia 9?
Previous reports have suggested that Nokia 9 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, paired with upto 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. These specs look feasible, considering the phone will be a flagship model. Further, Nokia 9 is also rumored to arrive under the Android One program and may possibly run Android Pie out-of-the-box.
Nokia 9 launch: Late 2018 or early next year?
Earlier, some reports claimed that Nokia 9 will launch in mid-2018 but a delay was reported owing to issues with the camera setup. Later, the phone was expected to get unveiled at the recently concluded IFA 2018, but that also didn't happen. Now, a safe guess is that Nokia would introduce the phone early next year.
