After launching the Nokia 8 (in select markets only), HMD Global - the new home of Nokia smartphones - is now getting ready to unveil another high-end handset, most likely called Nokia 9.


Earlier this month, we heard that the Nokia 9 could be officially announced in January, thus in about a month's time. Now, we have new details regarding the smartphone, as the device has been approved by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC).


According to documents found at the FCC, the new Nokia phone, model number TA-1005, is codenamed Avatar. The handset runs Android 8 Oreo, sports a 5.5-inch OLED screen (of unknown resolution) made by LG Display, and comes with 128 GB of storage space. A respectable 3250 mAh battery is on board, while photography and video features are handled by a 5 MP front-facing camera, and a dual rear camera (12 MP + 13 MP).


The Nokia 9 / Avatar is powered by a Snapdragon 835 (MSM8998) processor, the most potent Qualcomm chipset that's currently on the market. Sure enough, Qualcomm already announced a superior chipset - the Snapdragon 845 - but this isn't ready for mass production yet (and, when it will be, Samsung is likely going to secure most of the initial batches for its Galaxy S9 series).


The Nokia 9 features all the right cellular frequency bands (LTE included) to be compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile. Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean the phone will be released in the US. We'll have to wait and see about that.


The FCC didn't reveal any photos showing the Nokia 9. However, these renders suggest that the handset has a dual-curve display, and a pretty nice design overall.
