Nokia 9 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of this year. Lately, the handset has appeared in several leaks. Now, it has just been listed in AnTuTu with the model number ‘Nokia TA-1004’. As expected, the upcoming flagship sports the Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and 13 MP + 13 MP dual camera setup. Additionally, HMD Global announced that Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3 will receive the Android O update.
Nokia 9 Expected Specifications
Nokia’s upcoming device will be a fully packed one. The phone will sport a 5.5-inch Quad HD display coupled with the beastly Snapdragon 835. Built-wise, the Nokia 9 will set a new benchmark with its IP68 certified metal body and exquisite design language. Speaking of the memory, there will be 4 to 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM mated with up to 128 GB of internal memory.
The upcoming phone will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat as the operating system. It might also boast a Note 7-like Iris scanner. A dual lens 13 MP + 13 MP camera will sit at the back of the Nokia 9. All these will be juiced up by a 3800mAh battery.
Coming to the release date, we may not see the Nokia 9 before Q3 this year. This is primarily due to the supply limitations of the Snapdragon 835 chipset.
The Nokia 9 is not the only device that may come to India. HMD Global has already confirmed to launch the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 in the country.
Android O Update for Nokia 6, 5 and 3
It is now official that the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 will get updated to Android O in the future. HM Global has just confirmed this to TechRadar. The company spokesperson said, “the smartphones will get the Android O update once the new release is available from Google for their OEM partners, the same way HMD Global is committed to the monthly Android security updates”.
