Look what just landed into our inbox. A reader has sent us a spy photo of a Nokia 9 2018/Nokia 8 Pro prototype device that is protected with a cover. But what gets revealed is the truly bezel-less design and a minimal looking notch on the top.
Update: And this image has been posted by a Nokia employee on Twitter. Few of the readers have even indicated a iPhone X like bar at the bottom. But on checking closely the phone in image doesn’t look like iPhone X that has a bigger and ugly notch. Also the power button placement is on the right side while it is on the left in case of iPhone X.

The original image shows the prototype in the landscape position.
Check below the crop that shows the device in a portrait position. By looks of it seems to have a 5.5-5.7 -inch display. What is actually impressive is how the notch seems nearly non-existent in the image.
Last we reported a report from China that claimed that one of the flagship may sport a notch in a bid to maximize the display. Later we saw hand-made sketches posted on the basis of the this report. But the above image seems different from the sketch posted in China especially in terms of the notch.
Nokia 9 may be the one with in-display finger-print sensor and better camera as the Nokia 9 name may suggest. Read more about Nokia 9 as tipped by our sources earlier. Nokia 8 Pro or simply Nokia 8 (2018) is another Nokia 2018 Flagship that will be powered by Snapdragon 845 like Nokia 9 (2018).
As we already mentioned above it is yet not clear which one will sport the notch but if we need to make an educated guess the more expensive one which may be the Nokia 9 may be the one to sport the notch.
Thanks Navin for the spy-shot. Cheers!!
