Photo of Nokia 9 screen panel leaked?

We are not 100% certain that we know the final look of the Nokia 9, but the photo of the front screen panel could confirm it. Just after Nokibar posted the render/sketch of the supposed Nokia 9, a new leak of the screen panel emerged. This one is pretty similar to the screen from the render. The only thing we can’t see is the Nokia logo since the shot shows the back of the panel.


Nokia 9 (if this is it) will also have big selfie camera, maybe the same 13MP shooter like in Nokia 8. I like that it didn’t went full bezelles, or without bottom bezels that could force some unwilling touches of the control buttons.

The screen could have 5.7-inch diagonal even though at Baidu the original poster of the panel suggest 5.45-inch screen, but that depends how it is messured, because it’s curved. Anyway, the design won’t be such a problem for the success of the Nokia 9, but rather the implementation of the new technology that will make her stand out. It would be good to see a graphene based camera sensor, optical zoom, wireless charging that Apple reinvented and similar features.

So, Roland Quandt said the other day that Nokia 2 won’t come alone. HMD is preparing something else to show with the cheapest Android running Nokia phone ever, but he doesn’t know what or when it will be presented.

Maybe Nokia 9 is the answer since this phone is probably ready to be mass produced. When is the interesting question. Big tech shows are not so close and the only big one that Nokia used previously to show the N1 tablet is SLUSH in November.

Rumors: #Nokia 9 sketch + screen size known

    Oh man, that looks like a fat phone to hold :-/. Like a 2nd or 3rd generation Note. I really hope that’s just a prototype.

    • You mean like too wide? It will probably be sleek in terms of thickness, similar to the 8. I personally like it more than the 18:9 screens the industry is doind, but that’s just personal preferences. Still, the original MiMix is for me the right way to do bezel-less phones.

      • Same thoughts here. 🙂 I don’t like narrow 18:9 aspect ratio phones. 😛

        • SIMO

          I wonder if those saying they don’t like 18:9 have ever used a phone with that aspect ratio for a reasonable amount of time. I thought it was weird at first too, just as I thought 3:2 tablet and then laptop displays were weird. But there’s a reason the market moved toward these. I prefer both now.

            You know…my life was so much easier and just as good when I did not know too much detail about something, be it skiing equipment, cameras, mobile phones, etc.

            Mobile phones features today seem to be so full of talking points and extremely polarizing features, like bezeless, OLED, screen ratios, placement of fingerprint reader, manual camera mode, RAW camera mode, OS/Launcher, Glove mode, Tap to wake, Glance, notification light, single vs double, vs hybrid SIM slots, conservative styling (whatever that is), back of the phone styling, How much RAM, ad nauseum. Guaranteed there will always be something for someone to complain about, sometimes vehemently about at all the different price points.

            I know I don’t want to care about screen ratios and I’m going to try my best not to care. All the different screen sizes on all the different phones I have had have all worked for me.

            😀 😀 (The smiley’s mean this was a serious opinion, but meant in good fun post)

            Ignorance is bliss sometimes.

        Yeah, I mean too wide. Although on second thought I realize I’m being picky. This could finally, finally be the Nokia smartphone we’ve waited for for several years.

        I have a Note8 and quite like the relative one-handability, made possible on such a large display by the aspect ratio. The aspect ratio of this Nokia 9 looks a little outdated to me personally, but it’s not a deal breaker by any means.

    What I hate the most is that curved display such as Samsung S8 style and 18:9 screen ratio.

    This future N 9 seems to have the first point but not the second (luckily because I hate this the most) so everything will be played on screen size due I don’t even like toilet plates sized smartphones.

    At the moment I’m waiting to see if the most powerful N 8 version will arrive in Scandinavia and its price of course, then I’ll decide if wait for this N 9 or go to N 8.

    • Reasonable thinking. Lets see how the phone will look like, then first reviews and then we can create some kind of opinion 🙂

  • Never been a fan of curved edge displays but let’s see how good the implementation will be

    Idk if I like it but don’t hate it either
    Kinda Galaxy + Mate phone

    I’d surely would like a different back design for the
    Laser focus(if implemented)
    And finger print sensor.
    Maybe all in a single line would look better like the old outline fan sketch(all under a single separate housing)

    5.5inch 16:9 maybe will be OK
    6.0inch 18:9 seems better

      I had the S7 Edge when it first came out. Accidental touches were a problem. Samsung quickly made tremendous strides with palm rejection though. Nokia will have to somehow acquire the same palm-rejection tech to make a curved display work without problems.

      • Edge display is good to attract people .. ::::THE FANCY STUFF::::
        But personally feel like
        Palm rejection issues like you mentioned and durability for the falls are kinda some worthy points to be taken care of

  • (づ。 ◕‿‿◕。) づ

    I like that HMD still keep the 16:9? screen ratio for a bezel-less design. Bcos it will defeat the purpose of bezel-less screen (like S8 or iPhone X’s notch ) if you need to crop when viewing videos to go truly “full screen.”

    • Wider screen is better for surfing and visual browsing

      • (づ。 ◕‿‿◕。) づ

        web surfing is more comfortable in potrait mode unless on 6-inch++ screen phablet.

        • This one is close to that… But 5.5 inch screens are almost ok for surfing so extra 0.2 inches will do good.

      • SIMO

        18:9 is much better for taking advantage of split-screen view, though. More useful IMO.

        • IDK, split screen on small screens is no good. We didn’t evolve to bigger screens to use them as small again. It is useful but not for long usage.

    • SIMO

      Same here. This sketch is what got me excited for the Nokia 9.

  • surethom

    Looks like the Samsung screens, much prefer the flat screens style, let’s hope we get an official announcement before November.

    Off topic:- but can anyone confirm me whether Nokia 8 has HDR 10 compliant display?
