HMD requests FCC change model number for the Nokia 9, cancelling version with 4GB RAM
FCC documents reveal that the Nokia 9, which already was certified by the regulatory agency with the model number of TA-1004, will now be known as the TA-1012. In a letter to the Feds, manufacturer HMD requested the change noting that the previous FCC results for the TA-1004 are representative of the TA-1012. HMD holds the license to use the Nokia name on its handsets.

Geekbench benchmark tests for the Nokia 9 have revealed versions of the phone with both 6GB and 8GB of RAM. Both of those models tested were powered by the high-end Snapdragon 835 chipset. Another Geekbench test of the now cancelled TA-1004 revealed a phone carrying 4GB of RAM. This would seem to indicate that HMD has killed off a version of the Nokia 9 with 4GB of the short term memory used to assist with multi-tasking.

The Nokia 9 is expected to feature a 5.3-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. A dual-camera setup should adorn the back of the unit, with a pair of 13MP sensors on board. As night follows day, we surely will see some additional leaks providing us with more information about the Nokia 9. Stay tuned!
