HMD Global’s upcoming and anticipated flagship, Nokia 9 has been in the news for a while now due to its leaked designs, rumored specifications, pricing and release date.
While Nokia 9 has been able to keep Nokia fan lovers on the edge with the constant rumor mill surrounding it, the device was recently spotted on the benchmarking website GFXBench. According to the listing, the upcoming handset will be running Google’s latest operating system, Android 8.0 Oreo and not the Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box as suggested by previous reports.

It is also said to feature a QHD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display with a screen size of either 5.2-inch or 5.3-inch. If we go by previous reports, Nokia 9 could come in more than one RAM/ storage variant – 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The smartphone is also rumoured to house a 3,800mAh battery.
On the imaging front, the listing shows that Nokia 9 has a dual camera setup with a 12-megapixel camera at the rear, which would also have 4K video recording capabilities. It also shows a 12-megapixel front camera capable of recording 4K UHD videos and will feature autofocus, face detection, flash, HDR support, and touch focus.
Nokia 9 is also expected to have other features such as fingerprint scanner, IP68 certification for water and dust resistance, Quick Charge 4.0 support, and an iris scanner.
If one has to go by all the leaks, the Nokia 9 is a premium category smartphone with top-of-the-line specifications. However, HMD Global has yet to officially comment on the smartphone. Keep watching this space for more details and updates on Nokia 9.
