The smartphone will run on Snapdragon 835 processor, After the launch of Snapdragon 845, going for 835 is not a wise decision. It will sport a dual rear camera setup with 12 megapixel and 13-megapixel sensors. Nokia 9 will house a 3250mAh battery and will support fast charging.
Facebook will be using its facial recognition software to help people know who all are uploading their photos or using it inappropriately. Facebook is introducing this new feature in most places, except in Canada and the EU.

You’re in control of your image on Facebook and can make choices such as whether to tag yourself, leave you untagged, or reach out to the person who posted the photo if you have concerns about it.”
This new leaked image of the case of the new smartphones confirms earlier leaked design which shows the single rear camera on the Galaxy S9 and dual rear camera setup on the S9 Plus. The fingerprint scanner has now been moved to below the camera which is great.
