These Nokia 9 renders show why the crazy penta-lens phone will be well worth the wait
While there have been a few false dawns recently, it is still thought that Nokia will unveil its penta-lens camera phone soon – by early 2019 anyway.
The Nokia 9 is reportedly still on the cards and while we still wait for official confirmation, we can at least make do with some stunning new renders to further whet our appetites.
Based on CAD schematics, @OnLeaks and website 91Mobiles have published 3D renders of the forthcoming handset that are claimed to represent the final device.
Many of the elements, including the five-lens camera on the rear, have been spotted in previous leaked images but there were also several details released with the images. Surprisingly, unlike other former leaked pictures, there is no notch on the front for a start.
The Nokia 9 is said to come with a 5.9inch 18:9 display with a QHD resolution. It will measure 155 x 75 x 7.9mm and come with a single front camera.
Like the OnePlus 6T, there will be an in-display fingerprint sensor and glass back panel – which could hint to wireless charging.
There are seven holes on the rear, with five for the camera lenses and two likely for flash and proximity/autofocus sensor.
91Mobiles claims that there will be no 3.5mm headphone jack and the phone will come with USB-C for wired charging and any other connectivity.
It will run on a Snapdragon 845 processor – rather than the forthcoming 855 chipset – and include up to 8GB of RAM. Storage options will start at 128GB and the battery is said to be 4,150mAh.
The PureView branding is still being talked about, so it could well be attached to the name – as in Nokia 9 PureView – come its eventual release.
