Both phones feature small bezels with what appears to be close to an edge-to-edge display. The two handsets offer vertical dual-camera setups on back, and decidedly squared-off corners. While there appears to be a fingerprint scanner inside the home button found under the Nokia 8's screen, the biometric reader will seemingly be embedded under the display on the Nokia 9.
Overall, we have to say that the Nokia 9 looks quite sharp and appears to include an iris scanner placed on the rear positioned camera module. It also has bezels so small that they almost make the ones on the Nokia 8 look big. The Nokia 9 is supposed to be released during the third quarter, priced at around $699. This will be the top-of-the-line model and will be the first to sport Nokia's OZO Audio feature with low latency and 3D capture and playback. The sound will make you feel as though you are right in the middle of the event that was recorded, thanks to the Hi-Fidelity 360 degree sound caught by your phone.
The latest rumored specs for the Nokia 9 include a 5.5-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 835 chipset is under the hood with an octa-core 2.5GHz CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. 6GB of RAM is inside along with 128GB of native storage. The camera on back weighs in at 22.1MP and there is a front-facing 12MP snapper for selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3800mAh battery, and Android 7.1 is pre-installed. The unit carries an IP68 certification rating for protection from dust and water.
