As people were anticipating Nokia’s next handset will be an Android-based smartphone but the Nokia 9 leaked image suggests to the contrary. The Nokia 9 leaked emerged out of China, sporting a crazy or weird looking 5 camera set up at the back. If we go with the Nokia 9 leaked image, it sports five Zeiss-branded camera sensors and one flash LED module.
The seven cutouts seem perfectly placed in a hexagon shape, of the seven cutouts there are as many as five Zeiss-branded sensors seen at the back of this one. But the purpose of extra cutouts is still unknown.
This latest photo of Nokia 9 in an ITHome forums page, and it shows a Nokia phone with model number TA-1094. What looks like a Xenon flash sits on the top left edge of the cutouts. There’s one more cut out, the purpose of which is yet to be known. The only thing that is missing in Nokia 9, is there is no fingerprint sensor at the back, hinting at the possibility of an in-display scanner, or just its reliance on face unlocking – like the iPhone X and Oppo Find X.
The Nokia 9 is expected to launch since mid-2018, however, a delay was reported due to issues with the camera setup. It was also then reported to launch at IFA as well, but that didn’t happen either. Now, a vague timeline of sometime this year, or early next year lingers on, with no confirmation from HMD Global whatsoever.
While, the Nokia 9 has a 6.01-inch display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection, Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8GB RAM, 256GB inbuilt storage, and a large 3,900mAh battery. Earlier, the Nokia 9 was reported to sport triple cameras with 41-megapixel, 20-megapixel, and 9.7-megapixel sensors, complete with 4X optical zoom and Xenon and LED flash modules.
