The Nokia 9 is coming very soon. According to a Chinese website CNBeta, the Nokia 9 is set to launch in late January 2019. The news comes through insiders at Nokia Anew. The Nokia 9 is one of the most anticipated upcoming smartphones, mainly due to its unusual design. The exact date of the release is not revealed, so it could be subjected to change, just like with the Nokia 8.1.
The phone is rumored and leaked with a surprisingly unique design; mainly the cameras. The Nokia 9 PureView is going to feature five rear cameras with a separate depth sensor. So far, the details about the five cameras are unknown, however, the phone does look promising.
Nokia has been very different in their approach to the design of their phones, especially the PureView series phones. The Nokia 9 PureView is kind of a successor of the Nokia Lumia 808 PureView, which debuted back in 2012 with a whopping 41MP rear camera. This figure is considered pretty high, even to this day.
As for the specs, the Nokia 9 PureView is rumored to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8 gigs of RAM and a 5.9″ AMOLED display. We have no details on how Nokia is going to pull off the five cameras, but with Zeiss optics and top-notch sensors, the cameras seem to be very promising. It is also going to feature an estimated 4100mAh battery. It’s a bummer that the phone isn’t going to feature the Snapdragon 855 SoC, which further means that the Nokia 9 most likely won’t have 5G capabilities.
At this size and specs, it is safe to say that the Nokia 9 is Nokia’s first proper flagship device. But with these specs and design, it is going to cost a handsome amount of money. Still, if Nokia prices the Nokia 9 competitively, it can tip over the competition and give a hard time to the Samsung Galaxy/Apple iPhone devices.
