But now, something very substantial is revealed by a new OnLeaks report. It basically reveals how the Nokia 9 is going to look like.
Going the render of the Nokia 9 leaked by OnLeaks, the smartphones appears to sport a sleek design. There’s no existence of the headphone jack in the renders of the Nokia 9.

The primary cam comes with 13-megapixel RGB sensor coupled with optical image stabilisation and a secondary which includes 13-megapixel monochrome sensor.
As per rumours, Nokia 9 is going to be pretty much alike as the Nokia 8. The smartphone is expected to come with either 12 or 13-megapixel sensor at the back. But then, whether the device will come with ZEISS powered camera or not is the question which only time will reveal.
