NokiaPowerUser (NPU) claims that a trusted source from China has revealed that the upcoming Nokia 9 flagship could feature an in-display fingerprint sensor in lieu of the capacitive sensor that has been featured on Nokia phones till date. If true, the Nokia 9 is the only other phone apart from the Vivo X20 UD that features the new fingerprint sensor technology. This also means that the Nokia 9 would have to sport an OLED display to facilitate implementation of the sensor underneath.
NPU's source also adds that HMD Global is toying with the idea of maximizing the display area in its 2018 flagships and that may very well result in a notched display. The idea is still in prototype stage and might not even make it to production but given the native support for notched displays in the upcoming Android 9.0 P, HMD might be tempted to ape the competition. That would essentially contradict Nokia's legacy design language so things are still unclear at this point.
NPU claims that the source is credible as previous leaks about the penta-lens camera system rumored to be a hallmark of the Nokia 10 (or Nokia 8 Pro, if you may) and the various color options for the Nokia 6 (2018) have eventually come true.
HMD Global is on a roll this year having launched not one but four Android One smartphones and a feature phone. The Nokia 8 Sirocco has been an incremental update to last year's Nokia 8 and has managed to grab the limelight for being the first flagship to join Google's Android One program. The other noteworthy announcement, the Nokia 7 Plus, aims to offer flagship-class performance and imaging capabilities in the hotly contested mid-tier segment.
