“Notch” you too, HMD! Nokia 9 render reveals an iPhone X-esque notch

- Adrian Ungureanu

It’s a hard-to-understand trend, but more and more manufacturers have followed Apple’s example and have launched or are preparing to release smartphones with “notched” screens.

Many Chinese companies have already adopted this design, but now it seems that the Finns from HMD Global are also preparing a similar surprise for their fans. Honestly, I hope this will not happen.

But that what a render posted on the Baidu social network suggests. We see a phone that draws its design from Nokia 7 Plus, and which is said to be Nokia 9 or Nokia 8 Pro, which could be launched in the summer.

As you can see, the “forehead” and the “chin” are cut off but as you can see for yourselves there’s a notch at the top of the screen, like the one on the iPhone X.

I hope it’s just a fans work, who has nothing else to do and made the render to kill some time, and we are not talking about the real intentions of HMD Global and Nokia.
