The Nokia 9 also takes a step backward in the camera department with 12MP and a 13MP rear camera instead of the twin 13MP sensors seen on the Nokia 8. This FCC listing of Nokia 9 reveals that the phone's running Android 8.0 Oreo and has 128 GB of internal storage. The Nokia 9 is expected to be launched on the 19th of January, although the company has not announced or hinted at any event as of now.

Some new features that the Nokia 6 will have after the update finishes are some Notification Dots, a faster boot time, the Picture in Picture mode, AutoFill, as well as Google Play Protect security scans. The device is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with great performance onboard.

Meanwhile, an image of Nokia 9 has also surfaced online. It means the phone can remain submerged in up to five-feet deep water for 30 minutes. "It has a 5.5" FHD display, a Snapdragon 435 processor, and is available in 3GB and 4GB RAM variants. The update will bring several Android Oreo features like the Adaptive Icons, Ambient Screen, Downloadable Fonts, Wide-gamut Color, Notification Dots, New Emojis, Extended Battery Life, and Wi-Fi Settings. Alongside these small updates, Razer Phone will also get Android 8.0 Oreo update in the first quarter of 2018. The Nokia 8 had a 5.3-inch LCD screen. The front camera, however, is a total letdown, down to 5 megapixels only.

A victor had been expected to be announced on Sunday, but owing to long delays, the vote had been pushed back repeatedly. Media reports earlier said the announcement had been delayed after Ms Dlamini-Zuma's camp had demanded a recount.

Some previous rumours already revealed that the Nokia 9 will come with model number TA-1042, TA-1005, and TA-1009 - the first was even spotted on China's 3C site earlier this month.

While the Nokia 9 is shaping up to be another flagship smartphone from HMD Global, it wouldn't be out of the question to suggest that the manufacturer dipped into the spare parts bin more than once. Early reports claim that the device would cost CNY4199 ($635) in China.

The other noticeable aspect of the phone here is the front-facing dual-camera setup.
