Recently, all the rumor mill can talk about is the OnePlus 5. Prior to this, it was the Galaxy S8 and S8+ that made headlines.

One of the strongest features on the Nokia 9 in particular will be a bezel free design, just like the LG G6, the Galaxy S8/S8+ and the upcoming iPhone 8. 2017 is the year for bezel free smartphones and Nokia will also ride this carousel to full effect. The Nokia 9 will also be the first device to feature a dual camera setup, eclipsing another recently well set trend for the Android world. Today’s video promises just that, a screenshot of which you can take a look at below.

The images above are from an official introduction video from Nokia. It shows four devices, even though the company has launched only three, the Nokia 6, 5 and 3. Even more interestingly, only the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 appear today, as the smartphones on the right. The device at the extreme left has a dual camera setup, a feature that’s been rumored quite often for the Nokia 9. Speaking of the Nokia 9 and Nokia 8, the former will be the company’s premium flagship offering this year. Even more intriguing is the second image above.

The smartphone on the left doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor. And the Nokia 9 will feature virtual fingerprint recognition, suggest rumors. However, before you get your hopes up, rumors claim that the smartphone will feature a rear fingerprint sensor rather than in-glass technology. The Nokia 8 on the other hand will feature a physical front fingerprint reader. That too is comfortably visible on the device on the right in the second image. Thoughts?
