Nokia 9 prototype leaked - QHD display
Nokia's release of the highly advertised Nokia 6 in January marked the return of OEM to the smartphone market. The device was launched, albeit only in China, to a lukewarm reception, and is scheduled for a global release by the end of May. The Finnish company, not one to rest on its laurels, already has a working prototype of the next item, the Nokia 9, lined up.
The device was spotted on CPU-Z with a bunch of impressive specs. Impressive for the average device, at least, but not quite meeting the standards set by this year's flagships. The device apparently carries a 5.2" WQHD display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and the high-end Snapdragon 835 SoC.
That aside, the prototype boasts of a trending dual rear camera setup, but in this case, choosing to go the Huawei route, with the second sensor providing a monochrome effect as opposed to a bokeh one. Android 7.1.1 Nougat and a front-facing fingerprint reader only serve to sweeten up the deal.
While this may only be a prototype at the moment, this device is shaping up to be Nokia's response to the industry's giants, but a 4/64GB package just doesn't live up to expectations. It, however, bodes well for fans of the OEM that they're finally willing to take the step up after the let-down that was the Nokia 6.
