Rumor: Latest render shows Nokia 9 without a headphone jack

Leaker @onleaks and site posted, as they claim, leaked 3D renders of the upcoming HMD’s bezel-less flagship, Nokia 9. The leaked render does share some details from the leaked front panel, but overall we cannot be sure how trustworthy this leak is. Check the photos and video down below.


On the specification side, the device could feature a 5.5 (or 5.7) inch AMOLED display with 2K resolution, but it doesn’t seem like it’s 18:9. It should run on Snapdragon 835 platform, coupled with 6 or 8GB of RAM. The dimensions are 140.9 mm  x 72.9 mm x 7.5 mm, with the camera bump going to 8.9mm of thickness. In comparison, Nokia 8 dimensions are 151.5 x 73.7 x 7.9 mm and with no camera bump. Such an increase in camera bump, if it is true, could suggest a more powerful camera on the Nokia 9, and, judging from the popularity of 808 or 1020, people don’t mind a camera bump if the camera is top notch.

A thing I don’t like is the absence of headphone jack. I personally use the headphone jack on a weekly basis, but apart from headphones, I connect external speakers too to my device. Hopefully, HMD will include a USB Type C headphones and an adapter with the Nokia 9, or maybe even go a step further and couple a Bluetooth headset with the device. In general, I’m not a fan of removing stuff from phones (just like FM Radio), no matter if I use it or not. Of course, this could prove to be fake, and the real device could come with a headphone jack.

Announcement date, price and availability are unknown, but it will most certainly cost more than the Nokia 8.
