According to a report, there might be a new flagship smartphone coming from Nokia. We knew about the Nokia 6 Android smartphone and how it will be a mid-range one. However, this upcoming Nokia 9 (or 8, as it was previously rumored) looks and feels like a higher-class device, with some very good hardware. The smartphone is reportedly going to come out later this year. However, these are only rumors because HDM Global, the company making those devices, has not confirmed anything.
Leaks and rumors
Still, it seems like a French publication managed to get its hands on the new device and are offering some details. For once, not even the official name of this phone is certain. Previous rumors called it Nokia 8. Now, more recent ones are calling it Nokia 9. So, the guys at frandroid managed to get a look at the new phone. In the photos, the design of the smartphone cannot really be seen, because the device seems to be inside a protective case.
However, they managed to find out that it phone will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, with a 5.3 inch Quad HD resolution display. It will also supposedly come with 4GB RAM, and 64GB of storage. It will also run on the Android 7.1.1 operating system and will have support for QuickCharge 3.0. At the back, rumor has it that the Nokia 9 will have a 2×13 megapixel dual camera system. It will also have dual LED flash. Also, there are some previous rumors which said that Nokia might be working on its new voice assistant called Viki. Until now, those recent rumors do not say anything about a virtual assistant.
A new Nokia smartphone
It is worth noting that those specification, if true, are worthy of a flagship smartphone. People should keep in mind that Nokia still has not announced this device. Also, that it is very possible that those rumors are false. However, for the moment, tech enthusiasts should be happy with this. As for the device’s price, other rumors are saying that it may have a price as high as $700. Now, everybody is waiting for HDM Global to confirm if this smartphone will ever be released or if it just a false alarm. Until then, fans will just have to wait.
