Nokia’s long-fabled ultimate flagship phone has been in and out of rumor mills for a long time now. A new report attempts to shed some light on the handset, claiming that it’ll boast of a dual camera setup.
This intriguing bit of information comes courtesy Nokibar. The prolific leakster has posted a design sketch of a device on Baidu. It depicts a Nokia phone with a Carl Zeiss twin-snapper system on the back. The rear surface notably strikes a different path from the officially-launched Nokia 3, 5 and 6.
The handset seems to have a pillow-shaped look that is similar to the Lumia phones of old. Nokibar also posted another re-sketched image (see below) to showcase the style more clearly. If accurate, the so-called Nokia 9 may look just like the Nokia 6 from the front with a nearly identical home button placement and sensor array.
Speculation till date suggests that the Nokia 9 will run on a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 835 processor and come out in June. There might be two versions of it in the works. One could possess 4GB of RAM and a CNY 4000 (approx $580 or Rs 38000) price tag. The more premium option may opt for 6GB of RAM and a CNY 4500 (roughly $650 or Rs 43000) cost.
Interestingly, previous rumors have alleged that one of the two might sport dual cameras, neatly tying into the latest leak. In official news, HMD Global has confirmed that the Nokia 3, 5, and 6 will hit 120 markets at the same time in Q2 of 2017. This includes countries like the US and India.
