By recent observations, the popular gone-down phone maker Nokia, is soon going to launch three distinct Android handsets, but all three of them are mid-range devices at best by this year’s mobile standards. But what I have been seeing,the Nokia 9 supposed to be the flagship that will rival the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 this year. We’ve seen leaks that suggested the Nokia 9 will have specs that might be even better than the Galaxy S8’s. You don’t agree? Continue reading and perhaps, you’ll change your mind!
Nokia had some many customers about eight years ago, then the wave of androids made them go down in the phone market. But with the phones they are making, especially the Nokia 9 that is beating the samsung s8, Nokia carefully planned a massive come-back.
Nokia 9 might indeed sport an edge-to-edge all-screen design. The home button and its fingerprint sensor seem to be relocated to the back beneath a dual lens dual flash camera setup. That rear design looks a lot better than Samsung’s camera and fingerprint combo on the Galaxy S8.
Also, from the recent rumors of a Nokia 8, this latest speculation shows HMD Global is serious. Now whether that’s serious concerning stirring the pot, or actually developing and releasing these handsets is yet to be seen. However, is giving the dormant giant brand some traction on social media and various tech forums.
As for where the rumors were first brought to the attention of the public. That comes from a tip received by NokiaPowerUser, on April 1. Could this be a fools joke, it’s possible, although, we will take it as a tip-off nothing more.
Before I go further, these are the rumoured specifications of the Nokia 9 that would make any respective samsung s8 user have a rethink:
- 5.5-inch QHD OLED Display
- Snapdragon 835, Adreno 540
- 22 MP Dual-Lens Carl-Zeiss Rear Camera
- 6 GB RAM
- 64 GB / 128 GB storage
- 12 MP FFC
- 3800 mAH Battery
- Qualcomm Quick-Charge 4
- Iris Scanner
- Finger-Print Scanner
- Nokia OZO Audio Enhancements
- IP68 certification
- Android 7.1.2 Nougat
Y’all know the rumours I spread here tend to be eventually true, but let me make this an exception, as this is not from any of my trusted sources, so we urge to take it with a pinch of salt (even though I can assure you that there is a trend too and seems we can really expect a Dual-Lens Carl-Zeiss camera).
According to BGR,
“The Nokia 8, as the name suggests, will be a cheaper version of the Nokia 9. The render indicates the Nokia 8 will have bigger top and bottom bezels than the Nokia 9, and the home button will be placed on the back. The rear will still incorporate what appears to be a dual lens camera, although it has a different flash design.
It’s unclear at this point when Nokia will unveil new devices. The company should launch the Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3 in multiple markets around the globe by the end of the second quarter. Whether any of these Nokia 9 and Nokia 8 are accurate or not, the fact remains that Nokia isn’t done unveiling new hardware, and flagship handsets are only to be expected. What’s exciting about all of Nokia’s phones is that they’ll run a nearly pure version of Android, or at least that’s what HMD Global keeps promising.”

The striking Differences Include:
To many, the 12MP rear camera, and 8MP front cameras found on the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are a letdown. Yes, Samsung has included a tweak here and there, but, fundamentally, they are the same that appeared on the S7 and S7 Edge. Meaning that Android smartphone users are still craving for some next-generation camera goodness, could the Nokia 9 provide this?
According to the report, that’s a yes, as it could feature a 22MP rear dual-lens camera and 12MP front camera. Both of which come from the long time Nokia collaborative partner Carl Zeiss. However, where the real fun comes into play is with the dual-lens. Apparently, it will offer, true optical zoom, something which neither S8 can supply.
It’s thought the Nokia 9 will also feature the Qualcomm chip. And while this isn’t exactly worth bragging about (in terms of this comparison) it is the most powerful Android based chip around. Making the Galaxy S8 and the Nokia 9, two smartphones that could be classed as the fastest.
However, while Samsung has chosen to back up the chip with 4GB of RAM, users wanted 6GB. It seems as though, HMD Global has been listening, as it will supposedly support the Snapdragon with a minimum of 6GB. Meaning, it should out-perform the S8’s. Additionally, an option to choose from either 64GB or 128GB storage options is also superior to the single 64GB on offer from Samsung.
It has been widely noted that 2016 was a terrible year for Samsung what with the Note 7’s battery issues. However, Samsung has improved its power management software, a reason why users will see improvements in battery life.
As for the difference in capacities between them and the Nokia 9, it is rumored to be getting a 3800mAh battery. While the S8 has a 3000mAh and the S8 Plus a 35000mAh power unit, which will come out on top? You would expect the larger capacity of the Nokia too; however, Samsungs promise of improvements may negate that.
