The rumored Nokia 9 in the variant TA-1004 just passed AnTuTu’s benchmark, that revealed basic specifications of the device. The specifications are identical to the one Frandroid provided with the real-life pictures of TA-1004. Per AnTuTu, Nokia 9 (TA-1004) comes with Android 7.1.1, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, Adreno 540 graphics chip, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal memory, a display with 2560×1440 resolution and a 13MP+13MP dual lens camera on the back.
Numerous benchmarks of the device could only suggest that HMD is testing the device internally on a larger scale, which means that we could see the Nokia-branded flagship this year. Let’s recap the specifications:
5,27-inch screen (Frandroid), with 2K resolution
Snapdragon 835 and Adreno 540
4GB RAM + 64GB internal memory
8GB RAM version also exists
Dual lens camera with 13MP +13MP sensor sizes (probably black+color sensor)
My opinion about the specifications is that they are in line with 2017’s flagship standard, with the possible 8GB RAM version being the exception. Leaked pictures by Frandroid showed that the TA-1004 will have a “color”, “dual” and “mono” options in the camera, suggesting that one sensor will be a black & white one, with the other being a regular multi-color one, just like on Huawei’s flagships.
Some rumors said that the device will come with bigger sensors of 21MP, but I guess 13MP is fine if the photos are on a flagship level. Judging from Frandroid’s photos, the device will have a metal body and most certainly a very premium feel in the hands. The main thing we don’t know is the price, and if HMD could keep it about €500, this could be a great device in every aspect. But, let’s wait a little bit before drawing conclusions.
