Android Oreo is now available in Australia for the Nokia 8

Nokia 9 tipped to have dual selfie cameras
       By Rei Padla

We were skeptical because another recent leak suggested there would be just a single 5MP one, but it seems that render might be right, and other leak might not be entirely wrong.

Strangely enough, the company's decision to swap out the 13-megapixel front-facing shooter from the Nokia 8 for a 5-megapixel unit on the 9 is hopefully a minor deal-breaker.

According to a source, however, that 5 megapixel camera will actually be two five megapixel cameras. The listing highlighted the presence of a Chicony CKACE16 module on the device that is found to have dual cameras.

The Nokia 9 is expected to arrive on January 19. We've heard plentiful rumours regarding the device and now thanks to a render posted to Chinese site Weibo, and shared by 91mobiles, we could have a clearer idea as to what it will look like. It was also unveiled that the smartphone is functional with the Android 8.0 Oreo version. The listing also disclosed that the Nokia 9 phone has a TA-1005 model number and is known to be named as "Avatar".

The specifications of the upcoming Nokia 9 smartphone have been leaked online, showing an upgraded organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display and Android Oreo operating system out of the box.

Similar to most flagship smartphones from other brands, the Nokia 9 sports a dual-sensor setup for its main camera. The flagship might be powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 processor. The phone also comes with a 3250 mAh capacity with fast charging technology to recharge the device faster. The manufacturer's website confirmed the module as a dual camera system. One issue that experts had with the Nokia 8 is the lack of unique and new features.
