- Under HMD Global, sales of Nokia devices are on a rise
- Nokia has a strong lineup of midrange and entry-level phones
- Rumors suggest that the company is going to release a flagship, dubbed the Nokia 9
- Recently surfaced photos of prototype hardware of Nokia 9 confirm the existence of such a device
HMD, the Finnish company who acquired Nokia from Microsoft, has put a lot of effort in rescuing Nokia from irrelevancy. Its efforts have borne fruit as the sales of Nokia devices are increasing worldwide. But the company’s strong lineup of entry-level and midrange hardware needs a flagship device to lead the charge. This where the Nokia 9 comes in.
Nokia 9 has been the stuff of legends for quite some time now. It was hinted earlier in the year that Nokia is planning to release a flagship device in August. August gave way to September but no device was announced. This led people to believe that the rumored Nokia 9 was just a myth. But this all changed when a prototype of the phone was caught in the wild adding weight to some suspicions about the yet unannounced flagship.

The prototype photos show the back of a phone carrying not 1, not 2, not 3 but 5 different camera modules. Appearing alongside this bonkers arrangement is the Zeiss branding, hinting that the partnership which brought us some of the most influential smartphone cameras is still going strong. A flash and what looks like an autofocus assisting system can also be seen on the back.
In addition to the existence of a penta-lens system, a particularly interesting piece of information on the back is the model No. TA-1094. This No. corresponds to a device that was certified in China back in May which leads us to believe that the phone isn’t canceled and does in fact exist.
Other details remain scarce but you can be sure that when the phone releases it will come packing all the goodies that are common in flagships in 2018.
