Nokia 9 Prototype

According to new report (or rumour as you may call) a prototype a high-end Nokia Android smartphone, reportedly Nokia 9, seems to have appeared in a secret and secure box-shell to prevent revealing its design.

The folks at frandroid have tried the unannounced Nokia smartphone which they claim as the Nokia 9 – the other rumoured smartphone along with Nokia 8. Nokia has only announced three smartphones in the lower mid-range Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 which are due to launch globally in May and June including Pakistan.

Nokia 9 – The Prototype

As mentioned, the design of the phone is not identifiable as it is packed within the protective shell. However the shell allows access to the major components and parts of the phone which actually require user interaction. What you can identify is the aluminium build of the phone with the plastic antenna stripes.

You can tell that the phone adapts a 3.5mm audio jack, USB Type-C port, aluminium built volume rocker buttons, some sensors along side the earpiece, a home button (with a fingerprint scanner), app switcher and back button. Home button is not clickable but touch feedback. It’s not confirmed if its pressure sensitive like iPhone 7 or not.

On the back there’s dual-camera setup arranged in vertical order. Well if you now getting curious about the design, you can have a hint from a recently leaked video footage that actually shows a Nokia 9 as well.

Nokia 9 Key Features

According to the spec sheet by a device info app, Nokia 9 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile platform (model no. MSM8998) with the CPU clock speed of 2.46GHz. The phone have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There could also be a 6GB RAM variant in Nokia 9.

The Nokia 9 will carry a 5.27-inch screen with WQHD display resolution of 1440×2560 pixels. As far as the Nokia 9 prototype concerns, it runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat with pure Android interface. The interface is reported to be like Google Pixel as you can open application drawer by sliding up the lower part of the screen.

Nokia 9 – Dual-Camera

Frandroid has also tried the camera of the phone which they found as an average despite having a dual-camera setup. It’s reported to have Huawei-like dual-cam setup with a monochrome image sensor and an RGB colour sensor. In the camera interface, it offers to use each of the sensor separately as well as a a dual-mode.

You can check out the sample photos below which, according to the folks at frandroid, are not quite impressive and pretty much average in result.

This prototype Nokia 9 came with a pair of high quality earphones with full cable control featuring play, pause and two volume buttons. The unit might feature Quick Charge 3.0 as it came with a multi-voltage/current charger rated as 5V/2.5A, 9V/2A or 12V/1.5A.

Nokia 9 Price and Availability

Forget about availability as far now as the already announced Nokia 3, 5 and Nokia 6 have not been fully shipped globally. They are yet to be ship in this month and the next. So you can expect the Nokia 9 to be announced along with Nokia 8 or Nokia 7 sooner or later but sure this year.

Previously the Nokia 9 has rumoured to cost around $700 to $750 or around Rs. 75,000/- Pakistani Rupees. You can just take this price for now with a pinch of salt.
