Nokia 9 may arrive in September with in-display fingerprint scanner

HMD's launch of the Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 6 2018 and Nokia 1 is just the beginning of what should be an exciting year for the Finnish company.

If these rumors have any substance, the Nokia 8110 will launch in the USA during the second quarter of 2018. Both are set to run on the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 845 processor.

The site also reports that the Nokia 9 will likely feature a 5.7-inch display while the Nokia 8 Pro will come with a 5.5-inch screen. The Nokia 8 Pro is expected to debut as a cheaper Snapdragon 845 while the Nokia 9 will be a premium phone. To make things more interesting, there's even a Nokia 9 in the mix.

Florian Seiche, CEO of HMD Global, said "As we've expanded our portfolio we've always maintained one vision, to deliver great Nokia phones that live up to the values that our fans expect". The OS was specifically created for a new generation of feature phones and the Nokia 8110 is the first to get it.

A purchase of the 8 during the promo period will net buyers a free JBL Bluetooth headset, which Nokia says is worth P3,000. Nokia 9 may feature a slightly larger display as compared to the Nokia 8 Pro.

As far as the internal hardware is concerned, it is also expected to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor and boast Penta-lens camera on the back. It is rumored to house a 5.5-inch display.

The Nokia 8 will be retailing for 24,990, down P5,000 from its launch price of P29,990. The handset was spotted with dual edge curved display panel and dual camera setup. The primary sensor will be of 12-megapixel, while the secondary sensor will be of 13-megapixel. The smartphone will be backed by a 3,250mAh battery with fast charging support. Apart from that, the Nokia 9 is expected to get a heftier price tag that will put it among the ranks of the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S9+.
