Nokia has big plans for 2019. A leaked Nokia 9 photo shows, a striking flagship with no fewer than five cameras on the back.
Leaked Nokia 9 photo shows many cameras
[ Update January 4, 10:19 ] Meanwhile, a promo video of the smartphone has been leaked. It seems to be official marketing material from the manufacturer. In the video, the device is shown on all sides. It is also suggested that the five lenses receive more light and thus shoot better photos.
Many details do not provide the video. For example, it is unknown when the Nokia 9 appears and what the recommended price is. The device gets 6GB of memory and 128GB of storage space, but further specifications are still missing. How many megapixels the different cameras have is unknown.
Original message: Although Nokia is a well-known name when it comes to good, cheap smartphones, the company hopes to break through with more expensive devices in 2019. That suggests a picture of the Nokia 9 that has been shared by the reliable telecom insider Evan Blass. The unannounced device has an unprecedented number of cameras.
The Nokia 9 has five cameras behind, as the photo shows. In addition, a spot has been made for a double LED flash. What exactly is going on for cameras is still unclear. It is speculated that they are used for a zoom function, among other things: each camera offers its own optical zoom level.
It can also be seen that the Nokia 9 has a fingerprint scanner in the screen. The Nokia 9 is, after the OnePlus 6T and Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the third smartphone from a major manufacturer with this technology. The screen has no notch, but relatively narrow black bars at the top and bottom.
Fast updates insured
An Android One logo also appears on the back. That means that the Nokia 9, like other smartphones from the Finnish manufacturer, runs on a virtually unadapted version of Android. Users can also probably count on monthly (security) updates up to three years after the release.
Rumors about the Nokia 9 have been buzzing for over a year, but it seems that the smartphone will soon be finally unveiled. Sources expect the device to be presented to the press in late January or February.
It would be Nokia’s first high-end smartphone since the introduction of the Nokia 8 Sirocco, about a year ago. The manufacturer has been focusing on cheaper devices in recent months, such as the Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 8.1. The suggested retail price of the Nokia 9 is still unknown but is probably above 750 euros in view of the expected specifications.
