Nokia 9 renders reveal thin bezels, lack of headphone jack

Nokia 9

As far back as March, there have been leaks and rumors about HMD Global's next handset, the Nokia 9. While the phone is not making its way to the market until next year, we now know how it will look. Now, OnLeaks and Compareraja have collaborated and revealed a few renders of the Nokia 9 giving us an idea about the smartphone's looks.

From the renders, it appears that the company has jumped the narrow bezels bandwagon for the Nokia 9. It appears to feature a dual camera setup and a fingerprint sensor at the rear.

HMD Global has launched four Nokia branded phones already this year, the latest of which, the Nokia 8, is the closest to what you would think of as a typical Android flagship. It is said to have a 5.5-inch AMOLED display having Quad-HD resolution.

How slim? Let's just say the 8 is both taller and wider than the 9's leaked CAD-based dimensions, even though HMD's current top dog offers 0.2 inches less usable screen real estate. The device is said to measure 140.9 x 72.9 x 7.5 mm, but the camera bump will increase the thickness to 8.9 mm.

On the hardware front, it is tipped to come with a Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor. It will come with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Specs for this haven't been revealed just yet, but we can expect a 12- or 13-megapixel lens which will nearly certainly feature Zeiss optics. The USB Type-C is the only port on the phone. The other thing to take from these renders is the apparent removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack, something that Google has recently done with the Pixel 2 smartphones. The smartphone will be backed up by a 3800mAH battery with Qualcomm Quick-Charge 4 support.

Although the render is attractive, there is always the potential that things could change before the handset goes to production.
