HMD Global, the Finnish company who owns the right to sell Nokia-branded smartphones, is now prepping to launch the Nokia 9. The device has lately been making the round of tech news with an appearance on AnTuTu, rumored to sport 6GB of RAM. However, the device has now cleared the US-based FCC certification, which suggests that the release is very near.
The Nokia 9, which was previously spotted on Geekbench, has a codename TA-1004 according to the FCC listing. Although the listing doesn’t give much detail about the smartphone, it definitely confirms the availability of the device in most important markets soon.
According to the listing, the Nokia 9 will be a Dual Sim smartphone supporting both – GSM and WCDMA. It’ll also feature NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, and a microSD card slot. Previous reports suggest that the device will feature a 5.3-inch display powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset coupled with 4GB / 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Nokia 9 is also said to include a dual-camera setup on the back featuring Carl Zeiss lenses and dual-LED flash. A 13-megapixel camera is said to rest upfront for selfies and video calls. The battery is likely going to support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0 as well.
