Leaked Nokia 9 render reaffirms dual selfie cameras, slim bezels

We've been hearing about an upcoming Nokia 9 device for a while and it looks like it's going to be HMD's fully-packed heavy hitter. While the Nokia 8 would still remain on the flagship spot, the 9 would be that poweruser's device — the same way the Note 8 and LG V30 are a bit more niche due to the fact that they offer features not every user would care about.

So, what would the Nokia 9 be? We've gotten some hints and tips about its hardware — it will be powered by the Snapdragon 835, the rumor mill says — and a clue about a quad-camera setup has been discovered by nosy fans who dig through the Oreo beta's .apk files.

Now, for the first time, we get to see what is allegedly a leaked official render of the Nokia 9. Sure enough, it reaffirms a dual camera setup on the front of the device. We are assuming that the two lenses on the front are normal and wide-angle, while the back will have normal and telephoto.

Reports have been saying for a while now that HMD is also going to embrace the 18:9 display ratio and slim bezels down and that render reaffirms that as well.

When will we get an official Nokia 9 announcements? Whispers say it will happen near the end of January and the phone will be revealed alongside the 2nd gen Nokia 8.

The PA article from yesterday shoots down the SD845 and says it will be the SD835. Please try and be consistent.

The next flagship of Huawei, P11 will have 3 rear cameras with 40 megapixels, and according to the promise of the Huawei, the camera quality of P11 will be better than Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro`s cameras. So, what about Nokia 9? Will it have best camera, like Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia 808, Nokia N8 which were best cameraphone of Nokia in its time?

You are confusing the old nokia with the new. Pureview tech of 808 is with Microsoft. The new nokia(HMD) does not have the old nokias people and talent. Its just off the shelf parts put together. In order to see a nokia with top notch camera is something we wont see in years to come.

HMD use Nokia technologies, check Nokia 8 has OZO audio. OZO is Nokia technology. IT need Time to develop/port camera technologies, it was expected for HMD phone to have average camera this year, but expect things to improve in coming years. And pureview technology is with Nokia, only brandname is with Microsoft. just look at currect HMD lineup all of them have technology like clear black display but they are not calling it clear black because microsoft own brandname.

SD 835 is a great processor, if they use it instead of 845, the price should be lower. Nokia 9 will win many buyers if they sell it for a price lower than Galaxy S9.

They would absolutely NEED to sell it for noticeably less, which won't be hard considering the S9 will probably be like $800+. If it launches at like $599-$649, it may just do well.

I used to see an original Nokia with a Camera button even on their mid-low devices.
