The Nokia 9 will be introduced shortly by HMD, delayed by the date it was initially expected. The high-end smartphone is logically the one to which everyone has the look turned on the side of Finnish society. Will he have convincing arguments to go rubbing against the other giants of the market? Datasheet, news, price, release date, here is the update on Nokia 9 news.
When we stayed for more than a decade at the top of the mobile phone market, we inevitably enjoy an aura that leaves a hard sell. Nokia has returned to the forefront with new Android smartphones after a time found at the bottom of the ocean, pushed down by the metamorphosis of the market. A turn he had trouble addressing. The Nokia 9 will be the second high-end Android smartphone of the Finnish brand. After a mid-range and very seductive Nokia 7 Plus released a little earlier in 2018, a convincing Nokia 9 is expected.
Nokia 9: Specifications
It can be said with almost certainty that the Nokia 9 will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC 845. The first Benchmark smartphone has focused on a version with 4 GB of RAM, which seems to us to be reasonable for a high-end smartphone. It’s a safe bet that like the Galaxy S9, Nokia leaves the choice between a version of 4 GB or 6 GB depending on the storage capacity: 64 GB and 128 GB respectively.
A curved OLED screen
The latest rumours about the screen of the Nokia 9 announce a 5.7-inch OLED screen with curved edges, a trend carried by the Galaxy smartphones and that can already be found on the Nokia 8 Sirocco released a little earlier in 2018. We are talking about a QHD definition for the new slab, but also a possible fingerprint sensor under the screen.
Nokia 9: camera
The last leak concerning the photo part of the Nokia 9 is rather surprising since it is about 5 sensors arranged strangely at the back of the smartphone. A photo of a model has also appeared on the web. It shows the 5 Carl Zeiss sensors forming a hexagon.
Although an image supports this rumour, a five-fold sensor still seems unlikely even as triple-sensors are still very far from being a standard on the market. We find them for the moment only on the Huawei P20 Pro. Earlier, more realistic rumours announced a twin Carl Zeiss 12 + 13-megapixel sensor with laser autofocus and dual LED flash, the same as the one that equips the Nokia 8 Sirocco. Things should be clearer in the coming days.
Android One for a high-end smartphone
Nokia has already announced that all its future smartphones will be Android One, the no-overlay version of the OS designed initially for the entry and mid-range smartphones. This is an aspect that should seduce the world since Android stock still enjoys a high popularity. It offers the guarantee of prompt updates, like Google Pixel. The Nokia 9 should also release Android 9 Pie, the latest version of the OS.
OZO technology for the audio part
The Nokia 9 could also introduce improvements in the audio part since we are talking about the integration of OZO in the smartphone. This is a Nokia technology that creates a 360 ° spatial sound effect. It allowed smartphones with at least four microphones to record 3D audio, which could be interesting for VR. The source, however, does not specify how many microphones would be integrated into the smartphone to support the recordings in case this technology comes to be embedded in the Nokia 9.
Nokia 9: release date and price
Nokia had announced the presentation of the most anticipated smartphone for August 21, 2018. It was expected that it is the Nokia 9 especially as its predecessor had been formalized at the same time last year. It turned out, however, that it was rather the Nokia 6.1 Plus, the large format version of its new mid-range smartphone. The Nokia 8 debuted in Europe in early September 2017. We can assume that the Nokia 9 and its release date will be formalized shortly.
This delay can be explained by the release earlier this year of the Nokia 8 Sirocco, an improved version of the Nokia 8 standard, especially in terms of design. As for the price of the future Nokia 9, it looks much more expensive than the Nokia 8 which was launched at Rs 50,000 in France. The price should be around Rs 57000 or nearly 1000 dollars to believe our colleagues Phonandroid.
