Nokia plans to release the Nokia 9 smartphone early next year. It will be the current successor of the current Nokia 8 smartphone. The device has been certified by the FCC, which resulted in a nice list of its specifications and features.
The phone will sport a 5.5″ OLED panel from LG (resolution and aspect ratio unknown), HMD’s first OLED screen. The chipset is this year’s Snapdragon 835 and it will be running Android 8.0 Oreo. RAM is not mentioned, but the storage is a generous 128GB (UFS 2.1 sourced from Samsung)
According to a Chinese Weibo user, the image below is the full front panel of the Nokia 9 smartphone
The obvious thing to note here is the trimming of the bezels, a sign that HMD Global is finally ready to embrace the most important trend of this year. However it important to emphasize that the Nokia 9 will launch early next year
Anyway, we also see what could be two front-facing cameras, and a blue metal frame. It’s impossible to tell from this picture if the phone’s back will be glass or metal. The Nokia 9 is expected to become official as early as January 19, though it might be unveiled later.
Below are the screenshots of the certification documents from FCC.

The FCC document doesn’t reveal the display resolution of the phone or its aspect ratio and no details about RAM as well. It could come with a Quad HD display, but it is not clear if it’ll have 18:9 aspect ratio, which is a trend these days. It will likely come with a fingerprint sensor, but it is not clear about the placement of it.
