Back in February this year, Nokia announced its three new smartphones and officially came back from dead almost two years after Microsoft stopped using Nokia’s name on Lumia devices. But, there is no doubt that we all are still waiting for the real Nokia smartphone, i.e., a high-end premium device. Nokia 8 and 9 are supposed to be the premium smartphones launching in coming months, and today, everything about the Nokia 9 has leaked from specifications to the hands-on images and even the camera samples. So, let’s talk about Nokia’s premium high-end smartphone of this year.
Starting off with the design, the images show the device in a case so nothing much is revealed but we can see the dual camera module on the back with the LED flash as well as the Laser Autofocus. The design is not revealed much by the case, but we can see the openings for the speaker and ports that reveal some of the things like the USB Type-C port and speaker grill on the bottom and 3.5mm headphone jack on the top side. Since Nokia is adding the USB Type-C port on all of its Android phones, so no surprises here with the Nokia 9. The fingerprint scanner is on the front with two touch capacitive buttons. The volume rockers and the Power button are on the right side and there is SIM card tray on the left.
Now, coming to the specifications, a snapshot of CPU-Z app reveals that the phone features a 5.3-inch Quad-HD display with a resolution of 1440×2560 and Pixel density of 557ppi.
