It has been confirmed, by the Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, that the Nokia 3 will skip Nougat and will directly jump on board the Oreo train.
It is expected that Nokia 9 will have 5.5-inch QHD display and will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Some of the other key features that the duo will share include IP67 certification for dust and water resistance, a dual-camera setup at the rear, and USB Type-C audio. Amidst all the rumours, a new report coming from China reveals that HMD Global will be hosting an event to launch the Nokia 9 on Jan 19.
That's according to MyDrivers, which adds that it will apparently cost 3,699 yuan (roughly $560/£415/AU$735) for a 64GB model and 4,199 yuan (around $635/£470/AU$835) for a 128GB version, both of which supposedly come with 6GB of RAM. The device currently runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
Few days back company released the protective case of Nokia 9 that described the entire build of Nokia 9. The specifications fall in line with other details leaked before. The processor might come coupled with 4GB of RAM, Adreno 540 GPU, and 64GB of inbuilt storage. The camera will have 4K shooting capability and at least of the modules will feature a 12Megapixel unit.
So far, it seems like Nokia will not be jumping bezel-less display wagon however, the phone might come with slimmer bezels than usual.
While it is mandatory for devices launching with Oreo, it requires extra work for devices that came to life with an older version.
