Nokia 9 Leaked Sketches Stir New Round Of Flagship With Carl Zeiss Dual-Lens Camera

Mar 28, 2017 08:10 AM EDT


At least three Nokia devices are reportedly coming out before the second quarter of 2017 though the attention has now shifted to a possible Nokia 9. Leaked sketches have cropped up with the most notable feature being the camera it will sport.

The alleged Nokia 9 flagship device was suggested by Nokia Poweruser following a post by Nokibar via Baidu. For those unfamiliar with Nokibar, he is a reliable tipster who has provided genuine leaks in the past. Illustrations like this normally come out in the planning stages, thus tying it up with the Nokia 9. The one that many took note of was the Carl Zeiss Dual-Lens camera at the back.

Compared to the Nokia 6, 5 and 3, the back portion of the alleged Nokia 9 was different. It had a pillow-shaped design which one may easily tie up to the Lumia line. Moving up front, the device resembled the Nokia 6. That included a nearly similar fingerprint sensor and a touch button. Other than those, there are growing speculations that the alleged new Nokia 9 flagship may run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.

With another device in the Nokia 8 believed to be running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 to back the Carl Zeiss camera with single lens, the Nokia 9 will possibly need a more powerful chipset to support the Carl Zeiss dual-lens camera if such will indeed be used. HMD Global has not confirmed (nor denied) anything as of this writing so it may be wise to take this with a grain of salt.

Both the Nokia 8 and Nokia 9 are technically floating as next possible devices from HMD Global though an official announcement should affirm these leaks. For now, the attention is on the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. The specs and pricing for the Android-powered Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 were covered in a previous post though an actual date of release has yet to be known.
