Nokia 9 Release Date, Price, Features & Specs
A new image leaked this week on Baidu shows the back of the device, but there’s little here we haven’t already seen.
Nokia 9 release date
With no announcement for the Nokia 9 at the company’s 16 August event, we’re still no clearer on when is the Nokia 9 will launch. Last week the Nokia 7 launched with little fanfare, and all the signs are pointing to an imminent launch for the Nokia 2.
In the below leaked image it is shown next to the Nokia 2, which has recently passed through the FCC. That would usually suggest it is imminent.
However, we could be waiting until the end of February for a MWC 2018 launch.
Nokia 9 cost
The new Nokia 9 is thought to be priced at around $800 or £634 with 128GB of storage, and $950 or £753 with 256GB.
Difference between the Nokia 8 and Nokia 9
Many of the specifications for the now confirmed Nokia 8 and rumoured Nokia 9 are similar, but the Nokia 9 is thought to be larger and to feature a higher screen-to-body ratio. While the 5.3in Nokia 8 has a 16:9 panel, the 5.7in Nokia 9 could see a 18:9 virtually full-screen display, putting it in line with the Galaxy S8 and LG G6.
Or, at least, so we thought. The latest leaked image (via Baidu) suggests it remains a 16:9 display:
Both will be Quad-HD displays with protective Gorilla Glass 5, though recently leaked images suggest the Nokia 9 will also have glass at the rear.
It’s worth pointing out that this Slashleaks leak has only a 50 percent trust rating, however:
The Nokia 9 may additionally feature an iris scanner, and is said to have an extra 2GB of RAM over the Nokia 8. It may also come with 128GB storage as standard.
features and specifications
The camera is now known to be a key selling point for the upcoming smartphone, with HMD Global confirming that Nokia’s collaboration with Zeiss optics is back on. Zeiss is reportedly “rekindling its commitment to set new imaging standards for Nokia customers”.
We should see a dual-camera – potentially 13Mp with separate RGB and monochrome sensors. A 13Mp selfie camera may also be found at the front.
Also new in the Nokia 8 is 360-degree Ozo audio recording, which we’re sure will also make its way to the Nokia 9.
The Nokia 9 is thought to be the flagship in Nokia’s Android phone family, and as such will likely run the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with Adreno 540 GPU, plus 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
It will likely feature IP54 waterproofing, as well as a fingerprint scanner, the aforementioned iris scanner, and a 3,500- to 3,800mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 support.
