Nokia 8 and Nokia 9 to launch on January 19

HMD Global’s Nokia 9 will have a 5.5-inch display and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.


Following a few leaks and rumours, now there’s a report from a Chinese website, MyDrivers, which discloses that HMD Global will be unveiling the Nokia 9 at an event on January 19 next year in China. It is expected that the Finnish company will be launching the 2018 model of the Nokia 8 besides its flagship model.

MyDrivers reports that both the Nokia 9 and the Nokia 8 will be customized for the China market. This indicates that the devices may not come with Google services. Instead they will have some local alternatives. Also, the company may offer custom ROMs on these smartphones to meet the requirements of Chinese buyers.

The Chinese website has also leaked out a screenshot which shows the prices of the upcoming Nokia 9. The screenshot reveals that the 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage variant of Nokia 9 will be priced at CNY 3,699 (roughly Rs.36,000), while the 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage variant will cost CNY 4,199 (approximately Rs.40,900).

 

Will be Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC

Going by rumours, HMD Global’s Nokia 9 will have a 5.5-inch display and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. The handset’s protective case seen on Amazon UK revealed a curved-glass display akin to Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge. The case also hinted that the device would come with a fingerprint scanner on the rear as well as a dual-camera system. Also, the phone is likely to run on Android Oreo out-of-the-box and comprise a USB Type-C port.

Just like the Nokia 9, the upcoming Nokia 8 is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 835 SoC and will run on Android Oreo. The company started upgrading the 2017 model of Nokia 8 with an Oreo update last month. Nokia 8 is the first smartphone to feature Nokia OZO Audio, placing exclusive Hollywood technology in the palm of your hand.
