HMD Global seems to be working on the launch of its upcoming Nokia 9 flagship as it has been recently certified by the Federal Communications Commission in the U.S. The FCC documents of the Nokia 9 have also revealed some key specs of the phone.

The FCC filing of the Nokia 9 carries some screenshots of the phone. Those images have revealed that it is codenamed as Avatar and its model number is TA-1005.
The Nokia 9 features a 5.5-inch OLED screen manufactured by LG Display. There is no information available on the resolution of the screen and the aspect ratio that it will be sporting.

For photography, it features a dual camera setup that includes a 12-megapixel sensor and a 13-megapixel sensor. It includes a selfie camera of 5-megapixel
Nokia 9 on Geekbench
Shown above is the snapshot of the Geekbench listing of a phone that is labeled as Avatar. It indicates that the listing belongs to the upcoming Nokia 9 phone.
It has revealed that the smartphone has scored 1,910 and 6,796 points respectively on the single-core and multi-core tests on Geekbench. The listing shows that the Snapdragon 835 chipset of the phone is accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and it is running on Android 8.0 Oreo.
Nokia 9 Leaked Render
A leaked photo of the Nokia 9 has appeared on China’s microblogging website Weibo. The image shows that the design of the Nokia 9 is quite different from the Nokia 8 that came with thick bezels. The top and bottom bezels of the Nokia 9 are thin compared to the Nokia 8 and its eft and right bezels appear non-existent. The upper bezel seems to feature dual front-facing cameras. Since the major portion of the front panel is occupied by the display, it appears that it may support an aspect ratio of 18:9.
The fingerprint scanner is absent on the front side of the phone which indicates it could be present on its rear panel. Since the image shows only the front view of the phone, there is no confirmation on whether it has a glass or metallic rear. Since there is no way to confirm whether the render shown really belongs to the Nokia 9, we advise our readers to wait for further leaks to confirm on its design.
Nokia 9 Launch Rumors
According to the FCC documents, the Nokia 9 supports all the LTE frequency bands that are offered by AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S. However, as of this writing, there is no confirmation on whether HMD Global will be releasing it in the U.S. Recent reports have revealed that the Nokia 9 smartphone will be unveiled on 19th January. HMD Global is also rumored to debut a second-generation version of the Nokia 8 alongside the Nokia 9.
