Nokia 9 has been making the headlines over the past few weeks owing to the leaks that have revealed many of its specifications and what fans can expect from the company’s iPhone X rival. Now, a new photo of the handset with its back cover being highlighted has been leaked online, confirming the upcoming Nokia phone will have dual rear cameras. Separately, HMD Global’s upcoming low-end Android phone, the Nokia 7, was listed on an e-commerce site for a short period, and also certified in Russia allegedly.
The new leak comes courtesy of Baidu and looks straight out of the manufacturing unit of the handset. The leaked back cover comes with “Designed by HMD Global” branding towards the bottom alongside iconic Nokia branding in the middle. The handset is also expected to sport fingerprint scanner at the back. Corroborating a recent leak, the Nokia 9 back panel seems to sport a glass finish.
Based on leaks so far, the Nokia 9 is expected to sport top-notch innards and compete with premium smartphones from brands like Apple, Samsung and LG. The handset is said to come in 6GB and 8GB RAM options. Other rumoured specifications include IP68 certification and 128GB inbuilt storage. The leaks have also hinted that the Nokia 9 may be the company’s first to sport an iris scanner. Nokia 9 is widely expected to be priced starting at EUR 750 (roughly Rs. 55,100).
Separately, HMD Global’s cheapest Nokia 2 smartphone was briefly listed by US retailer B&H with pricing details. The listing hints at imminent launch of the most affordable Android smartphone in the company’s line-up. According to the retailer listing, the alleged Nokia 2 (with model name TA-1035) will sport a price tag of $99 (roughly Rs. 6,500) and can be expected to hit different markets including India. The listing was first spotted by Winfuture.de which also shared images of the budget smartphone. There’s no word on availability of the handset but we can expect to hear more about it soon.
The Nokia 2 appears to be set to arrive in regions apart from the US as well, with a report by Mobiltelefon.ru showing the Nokia 2 DS TA-1029 being certified by Russian regulators. No further information can be derived from the reported certification site listing.
