The latest one to come out of the rumor mill — on China’s Baidu, in this case — is a design sketch of the device, courtesy of leakster Nokibar, who has been responsible for previous leaks that turned out to be true.
If you look at the sketch closely, you’ll notice that there’s a Carl Zeiss dual-lens camera on the back of the Nokia 9. Carl Zeiss! People had thought we wouldn’t be seeing the optics — borne out of a collaboration that started in April 2005 — because of this tweet.
However, that was shot down by a clarification from Nokia.
@baris_gunel Hi, our current range does not have Carl Zeiss, which is what this tweet is referring to. Stay tuned for more announcements

The back of what is supposed to be the Nokia 9 is different from those of the three smartphones launched last month, as it is pillow-shaped, reminiscent of the design often used in Nokia Lumia flagship devices.
But the front resembles the Nokia 6’s, with similarly placed fingerprint sensor and touch button. A resketch by Nokibar should give you a better look.

Word has it that the Nokia 9 will be powered by Snapdragon 835. And because Qualcomm’s latest and greatest got supposedly hoarded by Samsung for its upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone, the handset will only be launched in June.
