Photos: This is the #Nokia 9 with dual-lens camera!?! *UPDATED*

Frandroid.com claims to have hands on pictures of the rumored Nokia 9. In fact, it seems that Frandroid had the device in their hands for 10 minutes. It’s a prototype running Android 7.1.1, using Snapdragon 835 and 4GB RAM. The phone is named “Unknown Heart” in the about page, and we can be certain that this is the same phone we reported about yesterday.

The Nokia 9 was camouflaged in a blue box, but from the pictures we can see the aluminum body. The 9 should come with a dual-lens camera and laser sensor for autofocus. The headphone jack is there, too, alongside with USB Type-C. The cameras have a 13MP sensor, and Frandroid describes the image quality as “rather poor”, but keep in mind that this is a prototype. Internal memory sits at 64GB, and the screen is a 5.27-inch one with resolution being 2560×1440 pixels.

Nokia 9 prototype specifications:

  • 5.27-inch screen (2560x1440p), 557dpi
  • Snapdragon 835 + 4GB RAM
  • 64GB internal storage
  • 2x13MP back camera with laser autofocus
  • Headphone jack and USB Type-C
  • Fingerprint scanner

Keep in mind that this is a prototype and that the real device could come with different specs and a different name.

Update: In a dozen of “Unknown Heart” entries in Geekbench database, there are 2 pointing out a device with Snapdragon 835 and 4GB of RAM that we believe is the device that Frandroid had its hands on. The first entry was made on 13th March, while the 2nd was made on 6th May. There are also entries from Nokia 3 and 5 as “Unknown Heart”, together with the devices that run on Snapdragon 660 and 630 platforms, as we reported yesterday.  (via: VTechgraphy, Baidu)

  • If its carries the same design language as Nokia 6 then I am not impressed. And even an average consumer won’t like a flagship designed like that.😞

    • It looks more like Nokia 5 with rounded edges. But yes, they all have the body made out of aluminum… Remember that Nokia used to push the similar design trough the Lumia line and it was a success.
      Anyway, this phone is more Nokia 8 then 9 if you ask me… But as Stipe pointed out, it is prototype and real model could differ a lot. I hope 🙂

      • I don’t see anything Lumia in this. Only Nokia 3 resembles a Lumia but the camera module 🙁 They should have designed it like Lumia 925 or Lumia 930. Other two look completely different.

        • Just opposite, new Nokia phones are recycled design of the Lumia 925 (except Nokia6)…

          We could do some pov post but let’s leave it for comments right now. Sailfish on Nokia device is interesting theme for chatting:)

          • Nokia 3 just looks like a Nokia Lumia 925 to me 🙂 I wish it was a Nokia 6 🙂

      • I would say this is a Nokia 9. 🙂 Whatever it is.. It is a Nokia. And this is just a fresh start. One year down the line and we will see new line up 🙂 Excited to see Sailfish on Nokia devices. I hope they launch a $100 phone just to compete with Tizen OS. 😛
        Guys can you write an article about this? Like “What if Nokia makes a sailfish device? According to me, sub $100 phone with sailfish would be an instant hit. At least, i will switch LOL.

    • It will carry the cold, scandinavian look like the 6, 5 and 3 have. That’s the new Nokia look, it seems.

      • I agree that looks very beautiful but the only problem that i see is the camera design 🙁 They should have not made them bulge outside. Look at Lumia 920, 800, 900, N9. they have saqme camera design like Nokia 5 and Nokia 9. But it look beautiful because it is flat and not bulging. 🙁
        If they wanted to do this then they should have taken design clues from Nokia Lumia 1520. It has a bulge but it mixes very well and doesn’t look like an another part added from above. 🙁
        I would also like a big hump like on a Nokia Lumia 1020 but not like this lol

          @LoveNokia, I think you are seeing an optical illusion, and to be honest, when I first saw this post, it looked like a huge bump to me as well. Look at the second photo though. Definitely no bump.

          • There is a bump in every Nokia android phone they launched at MWC. and i can see the bump in this one too, Its not an illusion 🙂

          • Michael

            OK. Still not seeing a bump in that second photo. or are you talking about the very slightly raised lip around the outside edge?

          • 🙁 OK. I’ll share the image. 😛

          • Michael

            Do you think the raised area in both the image of the Nokia 9 and the image you linked to is a packaging limitation or a design element?

            I think it is a design element in the Nokia 9 image above. I’m not so sure about the image you linked to.

            I can’t say it bothers me. I kind of like it. Won’t be an issue since I use some kind of case, but I understand others wouldn’t like it.

      • If you look closer at the image which shows USB port you will see the edge like in the leaked sketches. It might be shadow as well LOL

        • Yes, that 4mm thing from the sketches. Or a shadow 😛

  • Guys see this. 🙂 This is by far the best 😛

  • marty farrell

    What are the top five 660 devices on the Geekbench shot…above the 835…

    Are they smart enough to release multiple model options ???

    • Maybe just different variants…

      • marty farrell

        There are 5 running on the 660, what do you mean by different variant? Looks like 2 on the 835 and one on the 630. That’s more than 7, 8, and top model.

        • Like TA-1000, TA-1003, TA-1021, TA-1025, TA-1033 & TA-1039 for the Nokia 6. Geekbench shows every variant as a different device.

          • marty farrell

            Thanks Stipe

  • God of chaos

    If this is really the Nokia 9, then the ZEISS rumors weren’t true after all. Also, what’s more interesting is that in the camera options you can see that one says “color” and the other one says “mono”, which probably means that one sensor is color and the other one is mono, much like what Huawei does on their flagships, and not what apple has done with the second 2x zoom lens.

    • Yep, indeed seems so. It’s interesting that both, head of Huawei’s camera team and Apple’s camera team worked at Nokia. Need to check the benefits of such mono+color combination.

    • We are not be able to see the branding as it might be under that case. 🙂
