Nokia 9 may sport in-display fingerprint sensor, iPhone-like notch

Kristine Garrett | 13 March, 2018, 19:17

He also asserted that HMD Global was looking to maximize the display area on its 2018 flagship handsets.

The Nokia 9 may be taking cues from Apple and Vivo sporting both an iPhone X-like notch and an in-display fingerprint scanner. The Nokia logo can be seen in the bottom right corner. Part of the reason behind this is Google which has sent a signal to Android OEMs to embrace the notch, thanks to Android P. Google plans to redesign Android P that will allow OEMs to optimise their notched phones better.

This would also throw the under-display fingerprint scanner onto shaky ground.

HMD Global, the company that holds the brand license to manufacture and sell Nokia handsets, seems to be jumping on the "notch-sporting-handset" bandwagon.

Past reports claim that Nokia 9 would be the "ultimate 2018 flagship". The rumor mill now appears with the details of the Nokia 8 Pro pertaining to its key specs and possible pricing.

Interestingly, there will two different variants of this phone available in the market with 6GB and 8GB of RAM with 64GB and 128GB of Memory Storage options as Internal Storage memory on the device. It has a curved edge-to-edge 5.5-inch pOLED 2K display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The camera setup will be accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash. It is also expected to feature the OZO Audio 3D technology. As per earlier report, the Nokia 9 is said to be powered by Snapdragon 845 processor with a 5.7-inch display. It is backed up by 4000mAh battery and it also supports wireless charging. On the connectivity front, it will feature a USB Type C port. A separate report from NokiaPowerUser has shown the "hand-sketched image" of the Nokia 9 that shows the infamous - and now set to be cloned by one and all - notch.

Google with its upcoming Android P is making sure Android OEMs embrace the notch. At the front, the device to come with a 13 Megapixel of selfie shooter camera which is a Secondary camera on the device.
