If a rumor originating in China has to be taken into account then HMD will call upcoming flagship as Nokia 8 and not Nokia 9. Images of Nokia 8 have been leaked in what looks like marketing material in China. The text in Chinese refers to Nokia 8 and the design shown in images is bezel-less, but camera position is different from the two bezel-less sketches sent to us in a tip.
The design shown in images also doesn’t look anything like what we have seen earlier in various leaks.
Though if this is the real deal, Iris scanner seems to be confirmed. This is in sync with an anonymous tip we received about flagship Nokia 9 that talked about Iris scanner and other major specs. USB-C is also present in the images leaked in the brochure.
