Nokia 9 Specifications Leaked; OLED Display & A Bigger Battery Than Nokia 8!
The Nokia 9 will be somewhat similar to the Nokia 8, but with better specifications.
A new handset, purportedly from HMD Global, has leaked from FCC’s database which features a 5.5 inch OLED screen similar to the one on the iPhone X. Now it is a well-known fact that HMD Global is the sole licensee for Nokia smartphones. So for all intents and purposes, the leaked specifications could point to only one forthcoming smartphone from Nokia, the Nokia 9.
As far as specifications go, Nokia 9 is well ahead of its predecessor the Nokia 8 in terms of both capability and functionality.
Nokia 9 Specifications: OLED Display From LG
The biggest change from the Nokia 8 is going to be the display. As per the FCC listing, Nokia 9 will come with a 5.5 inch OLED display, a straight jump from 5.3 inch LCD display on Nokia 8.
The OLED display has deep blacks and high colour vibrancy, which is a characteristic of displays on flagships like Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple iPhone X.
Like its predecessor, Nokia 9 will be powered by the flagship chipset from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835. But on Nokia 9 the handset will feature 128GB of onboard storage, unlike 64GB in Nokia 8.
Nokia 8 came with 4GB of RAM and Nokia 9 is expected to come with either 4GB or 6GB RAM.
The Nokia 9 will come with a dual camera setup at the rear. It will be a combination of a 12 megapixel primary sensor and a 13 megapixel secondary sensor. The front camera will be a 5 megapixel selfie-shooter.
Among its other features, the smartphone will include 18W fast charging support, and a slightly larger 3,250mAh battery, compared to the 3090 mAh battery on the Nokia 8.
Nokia 8 Missed Flagship Features
Overall Nokia 8 is a decent smartphone but lacks some features which would define a true high-end Android like Samsung S8. It misses out on full water resistance, a bezel-less display and a slim design.
Nokia 9 is going to be the seventh Nokia smartphone from the house of HMD Global, who recently celebrated their first year of their operation by launching the affordable Nokia 2.
The company has secured a 10 year license from Nokia to make, market, and sell Android smartphones under the Nokia brand name.
Stock Android Means Quick Updates
So far, the new generation of Nokia Android smartphones have been quick to receive updates and security patches. This has been possible due to the fact that Nokia smartphones run on stock Android.
Nokia 9 is expected to launch early next year, and will come with some top of the line features in the premium midrange segment, and will probably come with Android Oreo, which has already started rolling out to their current flagships, including Nokia 8.
