Nokia 9, most probably, the last premium Nokia smartphone of this year, could find it’s launch late in the summers in the third quarter. Internationale Funkausstellung, Berlin (IFA) 2018 could be the stage for Nokia to reveal it’s flagship which should begin retailing before the next holiday season. HMD is expected to continue the chain and launch this device with Google’s Android One program, with a stock version of Android Oreo out of the box. The Nokia 9 may also have a curved display panel similar to the one found on the Nokia 8 Sirocco which may seem very Samsung-ish.
We presently have no clue as to which company may end up supplying the fingerprint sensor modules to HMD for the Nokia 9 but if the firm wants too provide in-screen authentication solution collaborating with Synaptics will be the best option as it is the most versatile and accessible technologies in the industry. We have already witnessed its optical scanner implemented in the Vivo X20 UD, the world’s first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint reader.
HMD Global made a huge mistake last year by releasing its phones very late. It needs to rectify these mistakes to increase it’s market shares and to reach more customers.
