Nokia and HMD Global have been busy launching Android-based smartphones for months now, and while the Nokia 8 has served as the pair of company’s flagship for a little while now, it looks like a new contender is on the way.
Based on documents published by the FCC, and surfaced by Liliputing, specifications for the upcoming Nokia 9 have been revealed. There are some key changes in place when compared to the Nokia 8, including the 5.5-inch display in the Nokia 9 being an OLED panel reportedly manufactured by LG. To compare, the Nokia 8 uses an IPS LCD display, so the switch to OLED will likely be a welcomed one to potential buyers.
Under the hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and the battery will apparently measure in at 3250mAh. The Nokia 9 will have 128GB of built-in storage, but there’s no exact word on what amount of RAM the handset will feature. It will have a pair of cameras on the back, one being a 13-megapixel shooter and the other being a 12MP camera. Around front, there is a 5-megapixel camera.
The FCC documents also point to Android 8.0 Oreo being on board the Nokia 9 when it launches, which should also be good news.
The Nokia 9 initially leaked back in May of this year, suggesting the handset would have a pair of cameras on the back, and it looks like the majority of those rumored features will indeed pan out. The Rumor Mill also suggests the Nokia 9 will have an edge-to-edge display design, following in line with the trend for smartphones in 2017.
It remains unknown when the Nokia 9 will be announced, or how much it will cost when it does launch.
