Nokia is said to be working on a flagship device that could very well be the much-expected Nokia 9. The device is codenamed "A1P" and will feature a Snapdragon 845, an in-display fingerprint reader, and possibly a penta-lens camera setup.

Nokia has already released a number of devices this year but of the wide array of offerings, only the Nokia 8 Sirocco has been an actual premium device so far, and even that was, for all intents and purposes, a refresh of last year's Nokia 8. Apparently, the company is looking to remedy that, as there appears to be a Nokia flagship in the works.

The device is codenamed "A1P", or "A1 Plus", or "AOP". The Nokia 8 Sirocco, for example, was codenamed "A1N", so at least the egregious codename is consistent. 

There's not much known about the device, bar the fact that it will be powered by a Snapdragon 845. It will also feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. Of course, in-display sensors—or the widely-seen variant, anyway—are only possible on OLED displays. As such, it's no surprise that this premium device is said to feature an OLED panel, and one made by LG no less. LG's track record with OLED displays isn't the most impressive, as devices like the Pixel 2 XL and LG V30 both had issues with their displays. Hopefully, those production issues have been sorted out by now, especially since the Pixel 3 XL will also sport a display made by LG.

The only other bit of information is the fact that the A1P features a high-risk camera. We have no idea what that means but over the past few months, there have been reports that the Nokia 9 will sport some sort of penta-lens camera setup. We could be looking at that here.
