Nokia 9 specs revealed by FCC

Update: Key specs confirmed

After touching our nostalgic hearts with the new version of the Nokia 3310 in 2017, HMD Global is preparing to follow up the Nokia 3,5,6 and 8 with a new super top-of-the-range model. The premium band device in question is the Nokia 9, and thanks to screenshots released by the FCC, we can now confirm its key technical specifications.

Nokia 9: design and build

Great news for Nokia fans: It looks like the upcoming flagship Nokia 9 will be keeping up with the Joneses as recent leaked images show a near bezel-less design for the OLED display. Check out the video below for the latest video render of the Nokia 9.

From a previous image leak, it's also clear that it won't feature a physical home button, so it's looking more and more like the phone will come with features one would expect of a 2017 flagship. No word yet on what materials will be used for the Nokia 9's casing.

Nokia 9: price and release date

The website Nokia Power User has received two tips one is about the price and release date details. The other concerns the device's technical specifications. The information should be taken with a grain of salt.

The tipster said that the price of the new Nokia 9 will be 749 EUR in European markets. It may be around $699 in the US, and Rs 44999 in India. Given the high-end specs mentioned, these prices seem reasonable. These prices are most likely for a 64 GB version, though a 128 GB model may also be released. 

Nokia 9: technical specs

According to the tip, the Nokia 9 might have a QHD OLED 5.5-inch display. Excitingly, it could also come with a 22 MP dual lens Carl Zeiss rear camera, with a 12 MP front camera. Plus, it is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 - the same processor used in the just-released Samsung Galaxy S8 - and 6 GB RAM.

This tip has been partly confirmed as the device passed through the FCC. The screenshots posted by the FCC show a display of 5.5 inches, Snapdragon 835 processor, 128GB of internal memory UFS 2.1, rear camera of 12+13MP and front of 5MP. We also find a 3250mAh battery and Android Oreo. As for RAM, we've still only got the earlier tip to go on.

Nokia 9: rumored technical specs

Display 5.5 inches, OLED, QHD
Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
Graphic chip Adreno 540
Storage 64/128 GB
Battery 3.800 mAh, Qualcomm Quickcharge 4.0
Software Android Oreo
Other Iris scanner, Fingerprint sensor, Nokia OZO Audio, IP68
Camera 22 MP rear, 12 MP front

Another thing to note: the Nokia 9 may be the first of its kind to feature Nokia OZO audio enhancements. That means it may be VR-enabled, and able to do 3D audio recording and playback. It is expected to have a large 3,800 mAh battery and IP68 certification.

Now that we know the rumored price, release date and specs, we'll patiently be awaiting some more image leaks so we know what design Nokia is bringing to the table. What do you want to see from Nokia's next flagship? Let us know in the comments.

  • Maybe it's just me but if I'm going to spend over 600.00 on a phone I want the latest processer. Unfortunately the Nokia9 ain't it. The 835 is in the 8 so again why spend a lot on the same processing package? Yes it has oreo8, an upgraded battery a few improvements but, the same processer. This is the same mistake the g6 made with the 821 instead of the 835. And the results were failed sales. Does it make a difference, for me yes. The only thing you can hope for is a plus version with the 845 processer!

  • Keep checking for a Nokia phone to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S8 plus,and the Nokia 9 looks a very promising phone,and if it offers better option than the S8 plus then i will definetly giving this phone a chance,because i am getting feed up of Samsung pricing of there phones,after seeing the Note 8 pricing,and the future S9 might be overpriced as well

  • This certainly looks & sounds like a very good offering. I know it's not the original Nokia company but any good phone is welcomed to the Android Community!

    I am looking forward to this phone. I just hope it is another all glass build.

  • Well I will look at one of these Nokia's if it has a 3800mAh battery, even if it's not a removable battery, it has a good fast processor the 835. Will have Nougat 7.1.2, if released as advertised and 6gb Ram. Already ticks most of my boxes.

    I wonder if Nokia is also in the AI race. If that's the case then within no time the Nokia brand will come on par with the likes of Google, Apple and Samsung. Fingers crossed. Waiting for Nokia Flagship. Hope they come up with their proprietary OS some time in the near future or acquire Jolla for Sailfish and make Sailfish OS smartphones as well.

  • What ever happened to Maemo and Meego 🤔

  • 3800 mah battery for that specs? Too low too low Nokia. You can drain that in like 20 minutes. And also a bit too high price for company that is getting back on track.

    I am really looking forward to Nokia's new flagship phone. I was always a Nokia fan until they went Windows. Just wish they would give it a removable battery.

      yes removable battery, i wish...
      I'm sorta weighing up IP 68 or removable back.. can't seem to have both so far.

        I have found if you have a removable battery you really do not need the IP 68 rating, because you can pull the battery to stop the damage. My S3 has been drowned 3 time and still going strong.

        Galaxy S5 had removable battery and also "waterproofing"

    they certainly made an impact in China (very tough market, ask LG..! ) with Nokia 6 getting over a million sales in pre-registration in less than a minute of being announced.
    more importantly is HMD's attitude towards​ Android...

    "Most of the smartphones in the market do not have Android OS in the way it should be. Vendors are adding a skin on top of the OS.
    Consumers have the right to have the latest version of the OS and we will be pushing the latest version and the patches as soon as it is available from Google"
    Per Ekman a VP at HMD.

    can't imagine a Samsung VP saying anything like that..

    not sure what Nokia's Flagship is gonna actually look like, but stock android fully supported and solid hardware sounds very very appealing.
