What will the Nokia 9 look like

The Finnish manufacturer should present by the end of February 2019 the world's first smartphone with 5 rear cameras. Here's how it will be

In the range of smatphone Nokia, developed for a couple of years by the Finnish HMD Global, is still missing a top of the range able to rival competitors from the Far East. Missing, in short, the Nokia 9 because the Nokia 8 Sirocco launched this year is a device with interesting features, but not up to the other top Android smartphones.

For some time rumors of an imminent presentation of the Nokia 9 PureView, but how it will be and what will be its technical characteristics? According to the Russian site Nokia Anew, the next smartphone from HMD Global (codenamed "Olympic") will be a top-of-the-line with Android 9 Pie operating system and will be launched at MWC 2019 in late February in Barcelona. But the same site also speculates that due to the great media interest this device could be presented earlier, but still in 2019.

Nokia 9, technical specifications and design

According to 91mobiles and OnLeaks, which also publish the first renders of this flagship smartphone, the future Nokia 9 will have Penta-Lens camera, a Dual Tone LED Flash and 6-inch QHD screen with 18:9 ratio. In these renders, the Zeiss branding appears alongside the 5 cameras, which are speculated to include a telephoto lens, a wide-angle lens and a depth-sensitive camera. There should also be a fingerprint sensor, a USB-C port while the headphone jack seems to be absent, which will probably only be supported via Bluetooth. Under the dust and water resistant shell should find space for 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of memory and a battery of 4,150 mAh.

The return of the PureView

This information is still all to be verified and comes from a report from which it also emerges that former employees who were part of Nokia's imaging division are now part of the HMD Global team. This last information was found on a server of FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Foxconn, which produces the smartphones of numerous companies. Finally, according to Nokia Anew, HMD Global would not only be launching the new Nokia 9 PureView, but could also start a new series of PureView smartphones by bringing back this brand launched by Nokia in 2012, then passed to Microsoft and finally purchased by HMD in August 2018.
