Video: thoroughly fine Nokia 9 concept gets set in motion
Remember that attractive Nokia 9 concept we saw a week earlier? It looked great static, so imagine seeing something like it in motion! It has been made possible, thanks to YouTube's Concept Creator channel. The video shows a thin and symmetric phone that looks quite pleasant. There are minimal screen bezels, the front and back panels are as shiny as it gets, and there's a dual camera setup.

The cameras are placed vertically on the back, as well as the LED flash and laser autofocus system. Below them is a big fingerprint scanner that looks easy to reach. Stereo speakers have been implemented on the front as well. Overall, it's a very smart and classy design. If I ever see a phone like this inside a bunny ears case, I'll cry a little inside. I should probably never touch Instagram, then.

It's absolutely within the realm of possibility for HMD Global, the Finnish company that handles the Nokia brand, to make a phone this striking. Scheduled for release in the second half of this year, the Nokia 9 is going to be the high-end model to put Nokia back on the map as a smartphone maker.

Rumored specs include the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and up to 6GB of RAM, enough for an adequate showing amidst this year's top Android phones.

Looks like bezel-less screens are going to be the norm for high-end smartphones from now on.

I'm in the same boat. I don't really like the curved screen on my S7 Edge, or the inconsistent battery life. Waiting for the Nokia 9 (Lumia 920 still one of the best phones I ever owned), or the Pixel 2.

Same here, especially the Pixel 2. Unfortunately it will still be created by HTC though... They're not exactly known to be on the cutting edge these days.

HTC is good at hardware, so it is a good idea to be made by them.

Hope Nokia could be a viable third alternative to the Apple and Samsung duapoly in the Smartphone market.

I doubt there will be a camera button, and hopefully they remove the Nokia logo from the front.

I think it looks just fine. Gives the phone a little more identity.

And unlike all other phone brands, Nokia does not place the logo in the center and therefore does not waste space and it does not make the bezel larger. Nokia is the only company/brand that places their logo discretely. I do not mind the logo at all.

Looks great. Hope they won't make screen bigger than 5.2 inches.

OWN s7 edge for now but as soon as nokia flagship arrives certainly going to ditch samsung. Battery drain issue still persists in samsung after about 6 months of usage. after nougat update , whats app lags like hell despite clearing all the cache n stuff. Camera is good but i need something new. at least bigger sensor like NOKIA phones. Still my NOKIA LUMIA 1020 takes way better shots than samsung galaxy s7 edge. They r just focusing on pixel size but not the SENSOR. Hope nokia comes back with full swing

Okay, I only will look at it if they include their OZO or OZO+ camera tech into the phone. Since they will no longer have pureview...

Ooh sweet Jesus! so Nokia is really juiced up this time. I have to say this is the first real effort for me that says daddy is back and even more serious about this business this time. taking nothing away from other variants like Nokia 3,5 and 6 and understandably so everyone requires those steps or what I would call baby steps to really get back to this wagon that is moving so fast from a slump. but this is amazing gold, this is a device that screams Nokia, I could tell its a Nokia of the future from far even with the stickers, branding, labels all removed or whatever you'd call it. YOU & I ARE ALL BLESSED for the return of the brand that holds so much history and once had a significant impact to the Mobile industry and the world over. Nokia just raised my taste buds with this one I'm really FINNISHED.
