    This phone needs to be released as soon as possible!! Especially with the the expected delivery date of the new pixels and people having to currently wait beyond a month or more to get them. Nokia has to have something to put into peoples hands NOW to win them over. The more time goes by the more people are going to lose interest

    When you come for some actual news but all you get is unconfirmed speculation… :/
    The coverage of new releases and deals is fine, but articles like this are just clickbait.

      Most of the specs and features that you see listed for Nokia 9 are the real deal and we just don’t mention anything for the sake of it. Even images for Nokia 9 are from reliable sources. You can go and search entire web and then you will come back to us for anything reliable on Nokia.
