Earlier this year, Nokia unveiled a bunch of smartphones during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The only high-end smartphone to be announced by the HMD Global backed company was the Nokia 8 Sirocco which had last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. As beautiful as the Sirocco edition looks in real life, it cannot go up against the likes flagship smartphones that have launched this year.
Enter Nokia 9. According to Slashleaks where a picture detailing all the specifications along with an alleged picture of the Nokia 9 has been posted, and it looks like Nokia isn’t done for the year.
The Nokia 9 is said to feature a 6.01-inch AMOLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The back of the smartphone has a ceramic finish with 18-karat gold accents that travel all the way to the border of the camera module.
Then there is the leaked image. This is where things get interesting and the reason why we took this with a pinch of salt. The image states that the Nokia 9 will feature a triple-camera system. Nokia could bring back the 41-megapixel camera sensor which was last seen on the Nokia 808 PureView. Along with that, there’s a 20-megapixel telephoto lens based camera followed by a 9.7-megapixel monochrome sensor. These cameras will have top-of-the-line Zeiss optics. On the front lies a 21-megapixel selfie camera with an aperture of f/1.8.
The Nokia 9 will be powered by Snapdragon 845 and will be backed by 8GB of RAM and an onboard storage of 256GB.
As Nokia announced during MWC that all its subsequent smartphones will be a part of Google’s Android One program, the same goes true for Nokia 9 as well.
Nokia 9 will have a battery capacity of 3,900mAh with quick charge and Qi wireless charge support.
Recently, Huawei P20 Pro became the first smartphone to sport three cameras on the back which DxOMark has rated as the best camera system on a smartphone. It’s a no-brainer that dual camera systems have become a norm, and a tri-camera system is definitely the next big advancements in mobile photography.
