New renders of the Nokia 9 have emerged and reveal a device that looks to follow in the footsteps of Samsung's Galaxy S8 devices. With a curved AMOLED display, it will sit above the Nokia 8 in HMD's well-received range of Nokia-branded devices.

HMD has already impressed many with its reborn Nokia range. The recently released Nokia 8 flagship is no exception and matches many of the high-end specs that we have seen on its competition. If there is one area where the Nokia 8 lags at all is with its design language, which is a little “2016.” Not so the true Nokia flagship due before the end of the year. Running stock Android (rumored to be Android 8.0 Oreo), the Nokia 9 could be the high-end Android handset of choice for those looking for a combination of high-end design and a vanilla-flavored Android experience.

While the Nokia 9 will run the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC as the Nokia 8, it will be available with RAM in the range of 6 GB or 8 GB along with a minimum of 128 GB of storage. The rear of the device looks to be fitted with a Carl Zeiss-sourced dual-camera set up in a vertical arrangement similar to Apple’s iPhone X, although it is unknown whether they will work in tandem or independently. Rumors suggest that we can expect a megapixel count as high as 22 MP. The curved display, which is very much in the vein of Samsung’s Galaxy series, is also likely to be an AMOLED or OLED type.

This latest render also looks to be much more refined than the previous render of the device that we have seen. As a result, it also seems to be much more like the device that can be expected to ship to consumers. The key to its success will be its pricing. The Nokia 8 is priced at around US$700 depending on where you purchase it, which does not leave a lot of room for the Nokia 9 find a niche between its stablemate and the much more high profile iPhone X.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
