Nokia made a comeback in smartphone industry this year by unveiling Android handsets Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 at Mobile World Congress. Now, it is expected to announce its flagship phone Nokia 9 to compete with industry leading phones like Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6 and Huawei P10.
HMD and Nokia are planning to make their comeback year big with the upcoming phone. As written in Nokiapoweruser, Nokia 9 might feature Iris Scanner as claimed by an anonymous tip. The tip also claims that the phone will have a 5.5-inch QHD, OLED display. It will be the first smartphone to feature "Nokia OZO audio" enhancements.
Nokia 9 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with Adreno 540 GPU. It will feature 6 GB RAM that is leading in the market currently. There will be two variants: 64 GB internal storage and 128 GB internal storage. Nokia will adopt the technology of dual-lens camera, so its flagship phone will sport a 22-megapixel dual-lens Carl-Zeiss rear camera and 12-megapixel front-facing camera.
There is a 3,800 mAh battery that can be charged using Qualcomm Quick-Charge 4 technology. Nokia 9 will be water and dust resistant phone with IP68 certification. It will run on Android Nougat 7.1.2.

Nokia wants to rule the market by launching mid-range smartphones at the starting of the year and flagship high-end handset in the third quarter to take an advantage of festive season. If it is true, then Nokia will compete with premium device makers, Google and Apple. It's clearly some time before Nokia 9 hits the market, till then company's mid-ranged phones Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 will be available soon.
