A decade ago Nokia dominated the entire mobile phone industry. Well, declining Google’s offer to manufacture Android smartphones was one wrong decision that declined the company’s growth to such an extent that it had to shut down in 2014. That said, HMD global helped reintroduce Nokia as an Android smartphone brand and since its revamp Nokia has produced some great Android smartphones.
The major highlight of Nokia’s Android smartphones is exceptionally great performance, premium build quality, and Android One can be considered as the icing on the cake. Nokia 8 Sirocco is an impressive flagship smartphone, but Nokia may soon upgrade their flagship lineup with Nokia 9. So here’s every leak, rumor, or render that we were able to find on the internet.
Nokia 9: Rumoured Specifications And Features
Pleasing design aesthetics have always been a distinctive feature of Nokia’s flagship and mid-range smartphones. The Nokia 9 won’t be an exception either. This new flagship smartphone may feature an aluminum and ceramic built. Nokia 9 may sport a 5.7-inch display that may sound small but is slightly bigger than the predecessor Nokia 8 sirocco. Furthermore, the Nokia 9 won’t come with a notch and the device will still retain small bezels.
As for hardware, the Nokia 9 will be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with Adreno 630 GPU. The Nokia 9 will come with 8GB RAM that will be standard across the entire lineup, and 128GB might be the base storage variant. It is worth noting that, generally Nokia doesn’t offer the ability to expand storage and Nokia 9 won’t come with an SD card slot as well.
Almost every Nokia smartphone runs on Android One. Consequently, the Nokia 9 will run on Android 9.0 out of the box. Due to the Android One program, the Nokia 9 will get two major Android updates. Kudos to HMD global for offering monthly security patches and a minimum of two major software updates.
