Recent leaks have emerged from Frandroid which reportedly showcase the upcoming Nokia flagship – the Nokia 9. While not officially announced yet, this is something that has been coming for some time now. Now partnered with HMD Global, Nokia is slowly easing into the smartphone business again. After the release of the Nokia 6 in China in January and the subsequent announcements of the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, this seems like the next logical step.

According to leaks, the new Nokia flagship will feature a 5.3-5.5 inch QHD display (1440×2560 resolution) in what seems like an aluminium chassis. In terms of I/O, the phone will come with the newer USB type-C standard and a headphone jack. The phone also comes with a fingerprint sensor built into the front home button, and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. For the specs, we are looking at state of the art Snapdragon 835 with 4 GB of RAM. A 6GB variant is also a possibility. The phones would be running Android Nougat. This would put the Nokia 9 right up there with the latest flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S8 in terms of raw performance.

However, the most exciting leak has to do with the camera module. Reportedly, the Nokia 9 will feature a dual 13-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash. In going the dual camera route, Nokia is not only emulating Apple but doing one better by using even higher resolution sensors. Back in the day, Nokia had quite the reputation for having the best cameras on their phones. If they can manage to carry this legacy over to the Nokia 9, we might just have a new smartphone camera king on our hands.

The one thing that remains in the dark, however, is the smartphone’s design. Since all the leaked images were covered by “black box”, it is not possible to tell much about how the phone will look.

Nokia is experiencing a mini-renaissance at the moment. The Nokia 6 has been received phenomenally well in China, and demand has been through the roof. The Nokia 9, along with the rumoured Nokia 8 and 7 are quickly shaping out to be Nokia’s big comeback. So far, the leaks all show that Nokia is headed in the right direction. They have the basics down right, with the top of the line specs, camera and all the basic features expected in a modern flagship. Another big advantage in Nokia’s favour is pricing. With the increasingly bloated pricing of other flagships from competitors, Nokia could make a serious dent in Apple or Samsung’s market share if reports of their appreciably lower price tags turn out to be true. The ingredients are all there, but it remains to be seen if Nokia can reclaim their position as industry leaders.
