It finally looks like Nokia is all set to tap the market with a ideal competitor for the Samsung Galaxy S8 with the upcoming flagship device Nokia 9. The size of the flagship will be only 141х73х9 millimeters taking into account protruding module dual camera on the rear panel, that is, it is relatively compact. However HMD Global - as of yet - has not revealed any details about the Nokia 9 launch. If this is indeed the Nokia 9, it will mark Nokia's entry into the bezel-less or thin-bezel market.

"This certainly confirms that over a million Nokia Android smartphones are active in the market and this doesn't include Nokia 6 from markets like China where Play Store is not officially accessible", Nokia Power User said in a report earlier this week. This is because the Finnish company could be testing more than one prototype of the Nokia 9. The phone is also expected to come with a 5.5-inch bezel-less display screen with a QHD resolution and a height of just 140.99mm. Instead of the 3.5mm audio jack port, the phone may come with USB Type-C earphones. In all likeliness, the phone will be powered by Qualcomm's MSM8998 Snapdragon 835. That's despite seemingly credible gossip of "customized" variants of sorts heading for China and the U.S. this fall, presumably with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage instead of standard 4/64 gig equipment.

Nokia's done a bang up job of keeping what we and many others loved about the brand - high quality externals, nicely optimised hardware and software, and plenty of care and attention put into the audiovisual and camera experiences too.

Other than Nokia 9, earlier rumors were also claiming that Nokia is also working on a budget-friendly smartphone, Nokia 2.

It's a shame to be sure, as the Nokia 8 is a really compelling flagship device.
