One of them will be the Nokia 9, which at present is the so-called flagship phone of the company. HMD, with the Nokia 9 will be entering the flagship space to compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6, HTC U Ultra.

According to a new leak from the ever reliable Nokiapoweruser, HMD will announce the Nokia 9 at the end of July or early August. However, it will go for sale only after the Q3 2017 due to the shortage of Snapdragon 835 chip.

Also, the phone will be sold for $699 in the US and 749 Euro in Europe.

As far as the rumoured specifications go, the Nokia 9 will feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, and the panel will be an OLED one. The phone will be powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, clubbed with 6GB of RAM and Adreno 540 GPU.

The Nokia 9 may feature a 22MP dual camera setup at the back with Carl Zeiss branding and a 12MP front-facing camera. As seen on the already announced Nokia phones, the Nokia 9 will also boot near stock Android, which is one of the USP of Nokia’s Android phones.

Alongside Nokia 9, HMD will also announce the mid-range Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 smartphones powered by the unannounced Snapdragon 660 SoC. The Nokia 8 will be placed in the upper mid-range segment, whereas the Nokia 7 will fill the company’ shoes in the sub Rs. 20,000 price bracket. All said, Nokia is looking to foray into every segment by launching at least one device in the price department possible, and that’s a good strategy by any comeback brand.

I want Nokia Pureview 808 with Android and improved hardware including OIS.. Hope Nokia ups their game.

April 10, 2017 10:14 pm 10:14 PM

Yes. Lets wait.

If it has OIS for rear camera with xenon flash and gorilla glass 4 or 5, it will be worth it. Lets see.

April 10, 2017 3:24 pm 3:24 PM

You forgot selfie flash…:)

April 10, 2017 2:52 pm 2:52 PM

Magic guy…..Why why why why specifically OIS mentioned. It’s a flagship pagal. Xenon flash purpose? Its bulky and consume more battery. Why not sahphire glass…..gorilla 4 or 5? Any glass when hits the ground shatters. Anyway you don’t buy that.

Xenon flash beacause of better photos. Give bigger battery – you can load it – but photos are better.

I have Lumia 1020 with small battery – but can make a photos – one day no problem.
I had old c901 smaller that new phones – with xenon – and works 3 days on battery with a lot of phots…

With 835, 6gb ram and Xenon flash they need to pack 4000mah instead of 3500-3600 mah within slim build.

April 10, 2017 4:06 pm 4:06 PM

Sapphire is hard to produce, that why even apple uses mix of sapphire and glass for its camera lense. Plus its costly, if its costly we will cry about prices won’t we?

April 10, 2017 7:21 pm 7:21 PM

HTC U ultra did that, what more could happen than iphones and galaxy’s. Shapphire I meant here is to say something of uniqueness. Not specifically shappire.

The only phone I used with a Xenon flash was the Nokia N8 and undoubtedly it beats LED flash. Just take a pic of moving fan with the Xenon flash and it will make the blades stop (freeze). Xenon flash freezes the subject so it doesn’t get blurred as is the case with LED Flash. OIS is necessary during low light for better performance. Having some sort of protection on the screen is always better as it is the most fragile part of a smartphones so Gorilla Glass 4/5 is justified.

Well said artist.

Point is not about specs…It’s the way Sudhakar s s for Samsung mid range and other top phones”If it has OIS for rear camera with xenon flash and gorilla glass 4 or 5, it will be worth it. Lets see.”

This is a Nokia flagship phone. Instead of telling good camera, good battery why say OIS+ Xenon and gorilla shit. Every cheap phone has gorilla….For Sudhakar it’s something from heaven for every phone. OIS+ selfie flash+ gorilla glass. Except these he don’t want any.?

April 10, 2017 7:27 pm 7:27 PM

Hey it’s a flagship,it will have OIS to basic shit. Only something unique need to be mentioned.that Sudhakar say same for Samsung mid range too. This time he left front flash. And Xenon needs more power and its bulky too. 15k phone gets gorilla 45k don’t?.

Shattering depends on how it falls. In my cases it might just fall from a small table.of 2 feet height. Floor is mosaic and not rough. I mostly keep my phones carefully and I know how will they break if it falls down. I am the owner of 2 Nokia flagship models. You no need to advice me.

April 10, 2017 8:11 pm 8:11 PM

That’s what I tell you, every glass shatters irrespective of glass. All depend on impact conditions. so dont s t of specs sheet ever again.

April 10, 2017 3:28 pm 3:28 PM

I know about Nokia and stop talking. Xenon flash bulky?. You are an illiterate. No one asked you to v omit your nonsense here. St f out.

There are many new tech xenon flashes – very thin !
No xenon is big but camera ! Take off the cover from any phone and you will see ….

Galaxy K have ZOOM ! so have 16 mm

Look at old SonyEricsson C901 without any bump… And not affraid of battery – few days.
It have 13mm but have 3 mm camera cover !

April 11, 2017 5:56 am 5:56 AM
3mm camera cover? Isn’t this flat and 13mm “There are many new tech xenon flashes – very thin !” Name the phones or devices so thin..I will see. Fact is capacitors needed for Xenon flash are bulky. You and Sudhakar should design a super slim capacitor that would allow Xenon flashes to work in even the tiniest cell phones upto 8mm and with high density low volume batteries too without diwali festival like Samsung . 7.7-8mm will be the Nokia 9 target. Xenon flash, dual camera, 3600-4000mah battery, no camera bump. Why all OEMs not using Xenon if all are… Read more »
