Following the QWERTY-phone Nokia TA-1047 on the website of the Federal Communications Agency (FCC), the flagship model of the Finnish brand, Nokia 9, was discovered.
What kind of beast?
The agency confirmed that Nokia 9 is equipped with a 5.5-inch OLED-display manufactured by LG (the Pixel 2 XL haters are stocked with popcorn). Rumors attributed to him the QHD-panel 2560x1440 with the usual aspect ratio of 16: 9, although due to bends on the sides and thinner frames from above and below the smartphone should feel more compact. The leak reported versions with 6 or 8 gigabytes of RAM, but FCC confirms only 128-gigabyte flash drive USF 2.1 from Samsung and 8-core chipset Snapdragon 835.
Our assumptions about the new camera system have also been confirmed. On the back of the smartphone is a dual module with two sensors for 12 and 13 megapixels. At Nokia 8 sensors are almost identical (the second one makes only black and white photos), and here not only the resolution but also the optics differs. If you believe Chinese insiders, a 13-megapixel module uses a "telephoto lens" with optical approximation. The front camera is usual, 5 megapixels.
Nokia 9 will receive a battery for 3250 mAh, and the operating system uses the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. According to unconfirmed reports, the body of glass and metal is protected from dust and water according to the IP68 standard.
When the announcement?
On the timing of the release of the smartphone no information. The presentation of Nokia 9 was expected in the autumn, and with a high degree of probability the novelty will be presented only in 2018. And as the manufacturer does not have to wait for the supply of Snapdragon 845 chips, the flagship may appear on sale a few months earlier than other models of the new season. At the same time, the successor of Nokia 6 with full-screen design is preparing for the announcement.
