The HMD Global branded Nokia Android handsets are soon going to launch, but all three of them are mid-range devices at best by this year’s mobile standards. New rumors although indicates that there are two other high-end Android devices in the works, with the Nokia 9 supposed to be the next flagship that will rival the recently launched Galaxy S8 and un-announced iPhone 8 this year. Leaks somewhat suggested the Nokia 9 will have brilliant specs that might be even better than the Galaxy S8’s, and now a series of images and sketches seems to directly indicate the phone might have an ever better design to compete with the likes of Samsung’s flagship.
These are purported Nokia 9 and Nokia 8 schematics, sent by a tipster – NokiaPowerUser, the same site that already shared recent Nokia 9 rumors, including the specs sheet and the alleged phone’s price. Here’s everything detailed.
Assuming the following images are accurate rather than fan creations, the Nokia 9 design might indeed sport an edge-to-edge all-screen draft. The Home button and its fingerprint sensor revealed in the blueprint seem to be relocated to the back beneath a dual lens dual flash camera system. That rear setup looks a lot better than what Samsung’s camera and fingerprint combo finds on the Galaxy S8.
Next, the Nokia 8. As the name suggests, will be a cheaper version of the Nokia 9. On top of the renders indicates the Nokia 8 will have a bigger upper and bottom bezels than the Nokia 9, and the home button will be placed on the back, which makes this an interesting inclusion. The rear portion will still incorporate what appears to be a dual-lens camera module, but will have a different flash depiction.
For now, it’s unclear whether Nokia will unveil two device. The company should launch the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 in multiple markets around the world by the end of the second quarter. The fact remains to be seen, whether any of these Nokia 9 and Nokia 8 are accurate at this point. Nokia isn’t done unveiling new hardware, and flagship handsets are only be expected. Excited to know about all Nokia’s phones is that they’ll run a stock and pure version of Android, or at least that’s what the HMD keeps promising. Stay tuned for more!
