HMD Global, the brand that sells Nokia-branded smartphones, is planning a flagship smartphone. Being called the Nokia 9 (for now), it will have all the latest goodies expected in a 2017 flagship smartphone. The lack of any concrete data does hurt this story a bit. However, recently we shared an image on Facebook, which was shared on Twitter by famous tipster Evan Blass. It showed a fourth Nokia smartphone alongside the Nokia 3, 5 and 6. So we are expecting the fourth device to the flagship Nokia smartphone. With that established, let’s look at what the Nokia 9 price in India, launch date, specifications and features may look like.
Nokia 9 Price in India
|Price (expected)||Rs 40,000|
As a flagship smartphone, the Nokia 9 is expected to carry a hefty price tag. However, considering the fact that it will not be the first phone to come with top-shelf 2017 hardware, its price can be lower than that of Samsung Galaxy S8 or even the HTC U11.
Nokia 9 Launch Date
|Launch Date (expected)||October 2017|
To ensure it gains as much traction as possible, HMD Global may reveal the Nokia 9 to the world in September. At such a time when iPhone hype machine will be working at its peak, this will look like a good alternative to the Apple smartphone. Following that, Nokia may bring this smartphone to India in October.

As expected from a 2017 flagship smartphone, the Nokia 9 has top-shelf hardware. However, while it feels good to see that, there are certain bits that do stand out. For example, a Quad HD LCD screen (may come from LG) and a dual rear camera setup. Expect more details to be revealed near the unveiling of this phone.

Flagship smartphones are always feature-rich. The Nokia 9 will be no exception to that rule. Among the things that are yet to be seen are whether it gets wireless charging and where the fingerprint scanner will be placed. The photo shows nothing on the back but HMD Global may opt for a solution similar to Sony smartphones. Let’s wait and watch how this unfolds. Stay tuned to IntellectDigest for more on this phone.
