Nokia 9 Tipped to Sport 8GB RAM; New Smartphone With QWERTY Keypad Tipped in Images

Nokia’s return this year has been heavily lauded by its large fan following, and the popularity of the devices can be seen in flash sales and the stock getting over in a jiffy. With four devices already launched, Nokia is yet to unveil a flagship level smartphone to the world. Alleged to be called the Nokia 9, the device has been spotted on GeekBench again revealing key specifications.

The latest GeekBench listing has a Nokia device codenamed ‘Unknown Heart’ and it sports flagship level specs, hinting that it is the much-rumoured Nokia 9. The listing claims that the Nokia 9 runs on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat, is powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 SoC, and is paired with a mammoth 8GB of RAM.

Other rumoured specifications include a 5.3-inch QHD display, 64GB of inbuilt storage, and a dual 13-megapixel camera setup. It is said to support Quick Charge 4.0 as well. The Nokia 9 is also expected to be priced at EUR 750 (roughly Rs. 54,100), which is pretty steep and competes directly with the most high-end flagships out there.

Separately, a Nokia device codenamed RX-100 has been leaked on Chinese site Teiba showing a device with a QWERTY keypad, presumably targeted towards business users. The images corroborates with a device leaked back in 2012, where Nokia was reported to be working on a QWERTY keypad phone running on Windows Phone 8 at that time.
Looks like that project hasn’t been shelved yet, and Nokia still plans to launch a QWERTY keypad smartphone soon. The images show a blocky device with the display on top, and the keypad at bottom. The device seems to be rather thick to hold in the hand, but this could just be a dummy unit, and a more refined variant will be launched in the markets
