The rumored Nokia 9, in the TA-1004 variant, just passed the FCC’s certification in the United States. No documents were made public at the time of writing of this article, and we are only able to see that the TA-1004 was authorized as a smartphone and we know in detail the frequencies and other wireless parameters of the device.
The Nokia 9 in the TA-1004 also passed Bluetooth SIG this week, and in last 10 days appeared over 100 times on Geekbench and one time on AnTuTu. We know how the device looks, thanks to Frandroid’s photos, and we know the basic specifications: Android 7.1.1, Snapdragon 835 and 4GB, 6GB or 8GB RAM.
Apart from TA-1004, the Nokia 9, or better to say HMD’s flagship we call Nokia 9, appeared on Geekbench with the TA-1052 and TA-1012 model numbers. These days an unknown device with the model number TA-1034 got certified in Indonesia (thanks Rocky ;)), and we suspect that that could be the rumored flagship we call Nokia 9.
All in all, all evidence points out that HMD Global will soon unveil their first Nokia-branded flagship. If I were HMD, I would launch it this summer, well before the new iPhone and the new Galaxy Note. Apart from the rumored 9, the new Nokia 3310 (2017) also passed FCC with special frequencies for the U.S. market.
Update: NPU find the FCC documents that show us that the device will come with a 5.3-inch display, just like the AnTuTu benchmark showed. Down below, you can check other specifications revealed by AnTuTu about the Nokia 9:
5,3-inch screen with 2K resolution
Snapdragon 835 and Adreno 540
4GB RAM + 64GB internal memory
