Nokia 9, HMD Global’s next flagship smartphone is expected to launch later this year. Several reports suggest that Nokia 9 will mimic Apple iPhone X’s design, complete with a notch on top of the screen. The device is said to ship with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and sport an in-display fingerprint scanner. Now Finnish site Suomimobiili has put out the specifications sheet of Nokia 9, revealing details of the upcoming smartphone. The specs sheet confirm in-glass fingerprint sensor for Nokia 9, Snapdragon 845 as well as triple rear cameras with a 41MP primary sensor. Of course, the latest leak need to be taken with a pinch of salt as HMD Global has not made features of Nokia 9 official.
