The new Nok now has a release date and price.
Nokia Power User has been slipped some more information relating to HMD’s Nokia 9 flagship.
This info has come from the same source that recently reported the 9 would come with an iris scanner, QHD OLED display and OZO Audio.
As with all these whispers – we can’t vouch for their reliability. Although, things seem to be stacking up logically enough.
New Nokia 9 news
The loose-lipped tipsters continue to use the Nokia 9 name, whereas others have suggested 9C.
They say that the new phone will launch in Q3 of 2017 with an asking price of €749/$699.
It’s likely the €749 refers to the 64GB storage option, but there will reportedly be a 128GB storage option too, which will demand a higher premium.
The same source says the phone will be unveiled in July or early August. It will then hit store shelves later in the year.
I am not sure how frightened the Cupertino giant will be about that though.
Spec round up
As we’ve already mentioned, the Nokia 9 will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor which has featured in some other 2017 flagships, and a Quad HD 2560 x 1440 OLED display.
The processor will allegedly be buddied with 6GB of RAM. The rear camera will be 22-megapixels and the front 12MP.
It’s also possible the Nokia 9 will be VR-enabled due to OZO Audio implementation. OZO is the name of Nokia’s VR headset, and OZO Audio has 3D audio recording and playback capabilities.
