According to sources, the Nokia 9 will get a bezel-less design which was missing from the Nokia 8 that did well in India nonetheless. There is no home button on the front and the top and bottom chins are practically non-existent which increase the screen to body ratio in line with today’s standards. The Nokia 9 also makes things interesting in terms of displaying something that has been only Samsung and LG’s forte till now.

The Nokia 8 successor gets an OLED panel with unknown pixel density and resolution but if have to guess it will be a Quad HD panel. The India bound phone will come with Snapdragon 835, 128GB of onboard storage, and a 3,350 mAh battery. The Nokia 9 will also improve on Nokia 8’s dual camera set up by offering a pair of cameras on the front too.
