Nokia 9 and A Cheaper Nokia 8 Pro Smartphone to Launch This Year: Report

HMD Global recently launched four new Nokia smartphones at the MWC 2018 event, including the Nokia 8 Sirocco smartphone. The same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset powers it but has a new 18:9 display. According to a new report, the company will launch more Flagship smartphones this year powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.

The two smartphones are the Nokia 8 Pro and Nokia 9. The Nokia 8 Pro will be a cheaper flagship version, while the Nokia 9 will replace the Nokia 8 as the top-of-the-line smartphone. The Nokia 9 will carry more RAM and storage than the Nokia 8 Pro.

According to rumours, the Nokia 9 will sport a 5.7 inch 18:9 display and will be the first HMD smartphone to feature an on-screen fingerprint sensor. Vivo has already included this technology in the Vivo X20 Plus smartphone. If it is true, HMD Global will become the second company to incorporate this technology, beating the likes of Samsung and LG.

Other speculations include a dual-edge curved display and a pent-lens setup. But from a previously leaked sketch, the Nokia 10 will likely carry the Penta lens camera setup, and the Nokia 9 will offer just a rear dual camera setup stack vertically. The sketch also revealed a circular fingerprint sensor on the back of the smartphone just below the camera. The Nokia 9 is said to be unveiled in September this year and will take on the likes of Samsung Galaxy S9+ and other flagship devices.

The Nokia 8 Pro is rumored to sport a 5.5-inch 18:9 display and an all-glass body design. Now, it is speculated that the smartphone in the sketch that featured the Penta lens setup is, in fact, the Nokia 8 Pro and not the Nokia 10. The Penta lens setup is encased in a rotating module and will be developed by Zeiss.

It is expected to arrive in August this year, competing against premium budget smartphones like Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and OnePlus 5T.
