Every day more and more information about the upcoming Nokia flagship is getting leaked, suggesting that the device could soon be announced. After seeing a protective cover yesterday, that confirmed all we know so far about the back of the alleged Nokia 9 (or 8), today, allegedly, photo of the front panel of Nokia 9 was leaked on the web.
The photo was found by VTechgraphy on Nokibar’s forums on Baidu and partially shows a front panel that is similar to the panel found on Nokia 6, 5 and 3, thus further convincing us that this could be a Nokia device. The photo has smudges, probably to protect sensitive information and we can see the speakerphone grill and the place for the fingerprint sensor. A fairly large opening for the front camera, and a hole beneath the speakerphone grill that could be for the usual sensors. Don’t want to go far on this claim, but maybe the upcoming Nokia flagship will feature an Iris scanner? There is no way to confirm this claim, but who knows?
It’s also hard to guess the screen size from the leaked front panel, but it seems bigger than the rumored 5.3-inches. The place where we usually find the Nokia logo, the top right corner, is covered probably to hide the already printed logo.
On the same Chinese forums, information emerged that the device will come with ZEISS lens and that the ZEISS branding will be placed right beneath the dual-camera setup. The branding was added to Nokibar’s sketches and it fits nicely.
