HMD Global’s long-anticipated Nokia 9 was leaked earlier this week sporting a crazy camera setup, with as many as six cutouts at the Trunk.
In that leak, the Nokia 9 looked to sport three Zeiss-branded camera detectors, 1 flash module, and the intention behind both of the other cutouts still remains unidentified. Now, a fresh leak shows the rear of this Nokia 9 once more, and this time it reveals as many as seven cutouts placed perfectly in a hexagon shape. You will find as many as five Zeiss-branded sensors seen at the rear of the one.
This latest photo emerges from China, in an ITHome forums webpage, and it shows a Nokia phone with model number TA-1094. The smartphone has been seen sporting a back, and contains as many as seven workouts. Out of those seven, five have been claimed to be Zeiss-branded optics, and also what looks like a Xenon flash sits on the upper left edge of the cut outs. There’s one more cut out, the purpose of which is unknown. There’s no fingerprint detector in the back, hinting at the possibility of an in-display scanner, or just its reliance on face unlocking – such as the iPhone X and Oppo Locate X
The Nokia 9 was expected to start since mid-2018, however a delay was reported due to problems with the camera installation. It was then reported to start IFA as well, but that didn’t happen either. Now, a vague deadline of sometime this yearearly next year lingers on, with no verification in HMD Global at all.
Previous leaks imply that the Nokia 9 will be based on Android One, and therefore can be expected to release with Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box. The smartphone can also be expected to match top-of-the-line specifications, using a 6.01-inch display with Gorilla Glass 5 security, Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8GB of RAM, 256GB inbuilt storage, plus a 3,900mAh battery. Before, the Nokia 9 was reported to sport triple cameras with 41-megapixel, 20-megapixel, and 9.7-megapixel sensors, complete with 4X optical zoom and Xenon and LED flash modules. Each one of the recent leaks don’t corroborate with what has been leaked in the past, and we recommend you to take all of it with a pinch of salt.
