It was claimed recently that HMD Global is going to launch two new Android flagship smartphones this year one of which will be called the Nokia 9. There isn’t a lot of information available right now about the new handsets but a new rumor has surfaced which claims that the Nokia 9 is going to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor.

If the rumor is accurate then HMD Global will be the first among better-known smartphone manufacturers to bring this technology to market. China-based Vivo has already released a smartphone with a fingerprint sensor embedded into the display itself so HMD won’t really be breaking any new ground if it decides to do this.

The rumor comes out of China and also claims that the Nokia 9 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor which is the chip that you will expect to find in almost all Android-powered flagship smartphones this year.

No further information has been revealed as yet concerning the device’s features and specifications but one can expect that it will be comparable to flagship rivals from other manufacturers.

It goes without saying that since there is merely a rumor for now, it’s best to take this information with a grain of salt until there’s more concrete evidence to support the theory that the Nokia 9 is going to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor.
