Nokia 9 rumored to be the first to feature “Nokia OZO Audio” technology

Two new high-end Nokia-branded smartphones are supposed to be unveiled in the coming months, as HMD plans to launch 6 or 7 handsets this year.
HMD's top-of-the-line Nokia-branded smartphone, the unannounced Nokia 9 is expected to come equipped with one of the most powerful chipsets, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835. A new tip coming from an unverified source claims this will be the first smartphone to feature Nokia OZO Audio enhancements.
Nokia OZO Audio offers 3D audio experience optimized for headphones and spatial audio playback systems. It features low latency 3D audio playback for VR devices supporting head tracking, as well as high-quality stereo playback for devices without OZO Audio playback support.
According to Nokia, the “audio focus technology enables accentuating sounds in one direction while reducing ambient sounds and background noise.” Nokia OZO Audio technology will also allow 3D audio capture with 4 or more microphones (when available on the smartphone).
Smartphones that come with just three microphones will also be able to capture spatial 360 audio, while those with two mics will offer spatial audio capture.
Besides the new Nokia OZO Audio technology, the upcoming Nokia 9 is rumored to pack 6GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB internal memory. Furthermore, the smartphone is said to boast a 22-megapixel dual-lens Zeiss camera and a secondary 12-megapixel shooter in the front.
HMD might consider the addition of an iris scanner, along with fingerprint reader. The flagship will sport a 5.5-inch Quad HD OLED display and a decent 3,800 mAh battery. Nokia 9 will feature IP68 certification and should run Android 7.1 Nougat right out of the box.
- Display 5.3" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 13 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2500 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3090 mAh

same but how is this different to previous lumia smartphones wouldn't it be under the same patent ?? Lumias 4 microphones and surround sound recording is this not the same ?? haac microphones which are to date the best sounding mics on phones (also present in ozo)

yup, I am actually more looking forward to this than I was to s8., I think that is because we already know what to expect from Samsung, just like how we already expect something from Apple, but Nokia is a comeback, maybe they will try to do something new here

Me too. Samsung is just like a sheep copying everything. They used to copy Nokia in including all the hardware. After Apple in removing all the hardware. So don't worry, as HMD boss said, Nokia will be the same strong old but in better ! You can be sure that they will include all the hardware like FM Radio, HAAC mic (BOSS and KING of the audio recording, my old Symbian phone still outperforms many new Samsung sh!t), a PureView like camera, solid and resistant phone, and all the other goodies !
