Preparing Nokia N9 of our time. Flagship filling in an old wrapper?
After the guys from HMD Global took up the task of reviving the legendary Nokia brand, it was decided to put pressure on nostalgia and classics. This was manifested in the release of updated replicas of once very popular models. The idea is understandable and attracted attention, but the output was strange devices and it was not possible to avoid disappointment.
But the company will not refuse from the idea itself to continue to play on nostalgic feelings. It became known that the sequel Nokia N9 is preparing for release, and its belonging to our times will give out the year of publication in the title.
In terms of design, the Nokia N9 2020 will be a “rehash” of the appearance of its counterpart, which debuted in 2011. The result was far from an ideal device, but an attempt was made to modernize the appearance of the retro model. A fairly compact and angular mobile phone came out with slight indentation at the ends.
On the back, we find a dual camera with the Zeiss brand as a reminder of whose optics are installed here. The lower edge became the haven of the USB Type-C port and speaker grilles, and a SIM card tray and a 3.5 mm headphone jack were sent to the upper end.
Interestingly, according to rumors, the Nokia N9 2020 will be the flagship device with support for fifth-generation networks and the price tag for it will be around $ 500- $ 645. When you should wait for the announcement of the smartphone, there is no exact information.
