Nokia 9 price, release date, specs and rumors

Update: Leaked design shows near bezel-less display

Nokia has revealed that it is planning to launch six to seven new smartphones this year, with at least one in each price range. The Nokia 9 will be the premium flagship to follow on the heels of the already released Nokia 3, 5 and 6 phones. We've already heard about the specs, pricing and release date of the device, but now some images of the Nokia 9 have come to light.

Highlight recent changes

The website Nokia Power User has received two tips about the Nokia 9 flagship from the same source. One tip revealed the full specs of the device, while the newer tip gives us the price and release date details. The information should be taken with a grain of salt.

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 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. 

The Nokia 9 likely won't be released before Q3 of this year, and the tip suggested it could be revealed in late July or early August. If Snapdragon 835 processors are scarce, it could be released even later in the year.

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.

Nokia 9: rumored technical specs

Display 5.5 inches, OLED, QHD
Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
Storage 6 GB RAM, 64/128 GB storage
Battery 3.800 mAh, Qualcomm Quickcharge 4.0
Software Android 7.1.2 Nougat
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. The flagship should to ship with Android 7.1.2 Nougat.

Now that we know the rumored price, release date and specs, we'll patiently be awaiting some 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.

  • 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.
