HMD Global is planning to launch the Nokia 9 very soon, as early as January 2018, according to sources. But it won’t be alone it seems, as there are also plans to launch a re-booted Nokia 8 alongside.
The word comes via Chinese source MyDrivers, which claims HMD Global is holding a product launch in China on January 19. It’s said that the Nokia 9 will be unveiled at this event along with a next-gen Nokia 8. The report goes on to state that both handsets will be tailored to the Chinese market, which likely means making them less focused on Google services and more on local equivalents.
There’s reason to believe that the Nokia 9, at least, will not be a Chinese exclusive, however, as we’ve seen it recieving certifications in a number of different territories already. It seems likely it will be released for other markets too, though whether this will happen inside January or closer to CES in February, remains to be seen.
We know that the Nokia 9 is essentially an enlarged Nokia 8 with the now trendy 18:9 wide aspect ratio screen and narrower bezels arond the display – this will also mean the fingerprint scanner moves to the back panel. The other difference is it will be waterproof.
For the Nokia 8 (2018) we have no clue in terms of specs and features, but if it’s launching alongside the Nokia 9 it could be the same spec again but with some tweaks, perhaps added waterproofing and camera enhancements?
The leaked details do give pricing information for the Nokia 9 at CNY 3,699 for the 64GB edition and CNY 4,199 for the 128GB; that’s about $560 and $635 respectively.
