HMD Global Oy controlled Nokia was tipped to launch the Nokia 2, Nokia 7 and Nokia 9 at MWC 2018 but the Nokia 2 and Nokia 7 are already official. The Nokia 9 which is expected as another flagship model is still shrouded in mystery. However, the expected flagship model is in the news now. That is because a protective case said to be for the Nokia 9 was spotted on Amazon UK where it was listed for sale.
The case was manufactured by case-maker HualuBro and is sold by more than one seller on Amazon.It would have been treated like just another protective casing if not that the listing also revealed the purported render of the flagship 9. The listing is accompanied by some 3D renders of the Nokia 9 revealing the design to a large extent both the front as well as the back.
The renders confirm some details contained in previous leaks like the presence of an edge-to-edge display and a dual camera setup. The display wraps around the long edges of the case while the dual camera is aligned in the vertical direction with the LED flash at the right side. The device also features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor as captured in the renders.
The Amazon listing for the Nokia 9’s HualuBro-manufactured protective case could be an indication that Nokia will launch the flagship soon. However, we may have to wait till next year to see the flagship launched. The case is available in Carbon Fiber Black, Blue, and Red, as well as Litchi Black, Blue, and Red. Each of the protective case sells for a discounted price of £3.88 (around $5.20). This brings the price down from the original price tag of £26.88 ($36).This bold listing could be a confirmation of the Nokia 9’s design or else how do we explain selling a protective case when we are yet to even confirm the design?
