We already know that Nokia is also working on its Nokia 9 smartphone which is said to be released at the end of Q3. Now the smartphone has been spotted on the GFXBench benchmarking website with Android 8.0.0 Oreo operating system, as per a report of The Android Soul. Till now, Nokia 9 was running only Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS in the earlier leaks.
The GFXbench listing means that the company is testing out the Android 8.0 build on the Nokia 9. It is now expected that the Nokia 9 will come pre-installed with Oreo update or it will later receive the Android 8.0 as an over the air (OTA) update soon after the launch of the handset.
Earlier, the smartphone with model number TA-1052 (said to be another variant) has been spotted on AnTuTu website. Prior to that, the smartphone with model number TA-1004 was also spotted on a GeekBench benchmarking website.
The Indian pricing of the Nokia 9 was also leaked earlier and the smartphone is expected to come with a price tag of Rs 44,999. Interestingly, the smartphone will be priced at EUR 749 in European markets and $699 for the US market, which means that Indian consumers will be getting the flagship device from Nokia at a lesser price tag as compared to the other markets. As for the availability is concerned, the leaks suggested that the smartphone will be unveiled at the end of Q3. However, there is no way to authenticate this leak as of now, so we suggest you take this report with a grain of salt.
