Description

The Nokia N9 is Nokia's first phone with MeeGo. It features a curved 3.9-inch AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass. The N9 is unique as it doesn't have any buttons on the front, so all navigation is handled with virtual buttons and gestures in MeeGo. Under the hood, a 1GHz TI OMAP3630 CPU matched with PowerVRSGX530 GPU and 1GB of RAM, powers the platform. On the back, there is an 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss wide-angly auto-focus camera capable of capturing 720p videos. The phone ships with Nokia Maps supporting online navigation and features NFC, Dolby Headphone and Dolby Digital Plus. The N9 will be sold in 16GB and 64GB varieties.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 251 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

  • FCC measured SAR:

    FCC measured SAR - Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).

    • Head:
      • 1.09 W/kg
    • Measured in:
      • 1900 MHz
    • Body:
