Check out these sketches allegedly revealing the Nokia 8 and Nokia 9

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.

Thanks for a good laugh. Anyway, only foolish Nokia fanboys would still think it's the same Nokia a decade ago.

"The S8 has already been preordered in Korea alone more than those Nokia will sell worldwide combined" Ignoring the fact that Nokia crushed Samsung along 14 years, and Samsung only took Nokia's position when Nokia moved to Windows Phone.

"Ignoring the fact that Nokia crushed Samsung along 14 years, and Samsung only took Nokia's position when Nokia moved to Windows Phone." But Nokia did that with feature phones, though... not with smartphones. The pre-order number which @haruken was talking of, is pre-orders of smartphones, not feature phones... And hey, I think Nokia began dying even before it switched to Windows Phone, due to the Symbian OS losing market share to iOS and Android. So, Samsung took Nokia's position because Nokia's Symbian OS wasn't was the best option anymore. Why would Nokia move to Windows Phone if it's Symbian OS was still relevant?

I think Samsung couldn't compete with Nokia in any sector of mobile business before. They failed competing with Nokia's basic phones, feature phones, smartphones run Symbian like in N and E Series, and even Samsung miserably failed when tried to compete the Lumia with the Ativ, which is in WP. I guess same thing would have happened if NOKIA adopted Android. People love and trust Nokia, and the only problem with Nokia was the operating system they implemented in their phones.

No seriously though, this is a better overall phone than the galaxy s8, the galaxy note 8 might be as good and a bit better than it but the galaxy s8 isn't. Galaxy s8 is the best phone now. I like Samsung but this nokia 9 is a beast

HMD is using more than just the Nokia name. If that thing is carrying Carl Z optics and Nokia camera software with vanilla android that gets quick updates (as they've promised), I would definitely consider trading in my S8+ for it. Honestly, why doesnt Google just buy up the Nokia name/patents and use their facilities to make their own amazing pure android handsets.

Because they already tried that with Motorola, which I thought they did very well at considering the Nexus 6 was one of the better Nexus devices to ever be produced. And that was also back when the Moto X was a great device at a decent price.

Eventually they had to sell off Motorola due to OEM pressure, since the Motos would even beat Nexii when it came to update speed and stability. However under Lenovo not all is bad. Motos still get comparitively quicker updates and they are now available in more countries than ever before...

Nokia is going for its for it's former users. Being in the same market with Samsung and other OEM, if the phones are going to be good and proceed right, it is going to make a dent in other OEMs sales, which is good, because the world really needs a good Android manufacturer.
