Nokia 9 rumoured to have Android 7.1.2 Nougat, iris scanner, 6GB RAM and much more

One of the biggest mobile manufacturing company, Nokia, which once ruled over the globe for about a decade, faced its first debacle after the launch of Android OS and iOS.  To compete with its counterparts, Nokia made a fatal mistake of producing only Windows phones, which turned out to be a major fiasco. Nokia, later, sold its maximum share to Microsoft corporation. However, to fight back its position in the smartphone industry, Nokia decided to relaunch its Android Nokia mobiles in 2017. After making some interesting announcements about the launch of its upcoming handsets including Nokia Edge and Nokia 8, the company is apparently all set to amuse the consumers further with its latest handset Nokia 9.

Nokia 9, the highly anticipated but yet to be confirmed flagship Nokia Android phone, has once again been leaked. According to a new report, the Nokia 9 top-end smartphone - which was earlier called Nokia P1 - will sport industry-leading hardware, and pack features such as iris scanner and Nokia OZO audio enhancements. The handset is likely to be launched by June 2017.

Nokia 9 specifications

As per a report by Nokia Power User, the Nokia 9 run Android 7.1.2 Nougat, and will sport a 5.5-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) OLED display. It is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 6GB RAM.

The Nokia 9 is said to bear a 22-megapixel dual-lens rear camera setup with Carl Zeiss optics, and a 12-megapixel front-facing camera. Of course, this is not the first time there have been reports of a dual rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics on an anticipated Nokia phone, if one counts rumours surrounding the yet-to-be-launched Nokia 8. The smartphone will reportedly be available on 64GB and 128GB storage variant, and is said to be powered by a 3800mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging technology.

Nokia 9 features

Coming to the aforementioned highlights of the Nokia 9 - the smartphone will reportedly integrate an iris scanner, as well as the recently introduced advanced spatial audio tech called OZO Audio - developed by the OZO spherical camera. It's unclear what this 3D audio experience will look to power. Other notable inclusions include IP68 certification and a fingerprint scanner.

To recall, Samsung has brought an iris scanner to the recently launched Galaxy S8 smartphone, technology we'd first seen on the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note 7. It powers a biometric authentication system.
