MeeGo-based Nokia N9 (RM-680) to feature Snapdragon CPU? Not likely

Although the Nokia N9 has appeared a few times in leaked photos, we don’t know much about its internals.

For example, what’s the processor that Nokia will integrate into the N9? Well, if these details appeared over at the Baidu forums are correct, Nokia’s first MeeGo smartphone will feature a QSD8250 Qualcomm Snapdragon processor at 1Ghz.

If you remember, back in February there were indications that Nokia would introduce a Snapdragon-based Symbian smartphones later this year – so a MeeGo one could also be done, right? Well, not really.

As Know Nokia points out, Nokia has specifically said Maemo 6 devices would use TI OMAP 3 processors, so that’s what the N9 will likely feature.

Other rumored Nokia N9 specs:

  • 4 inch WVGA touchscreen display
  • HSPA+
  • Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n
  • 5MP camera with 720p video recording @30fps
  • 512MB RAM
  • 1GB ROM
  • 64GB internal memory
  • MicroSD card support up to 32GB
  • 160 grams

Everything here seems possible, save for the 5MP camera – I really think it will have 8MP or more (after all, the N8 has a 12MP shooter).

There’s also talk on the Baidu forum about the N9 featuring a Super AMOLED display – that ain’t going to happen, because Samsung can hardly make enough S-AMOLED displays for its own smartphones.

Let’s hope we’ll find out more about the Nokia N9 soon, from more reliable sources.

    being a die hard nokia fan, these specs are NOT good enough and want something worthy of being a 2011/12 model, not a throwback to the past. I'm slowly losing interest in phones as a hobby as it's been way too slow this year, how sick and tired am I of hearing about the lame ass Samsung Galaxy S, Android 2.2, Iphone 4 blah blah blah. BULLSHIT!

    I like this spec list, but if it doesn't have an OMAP chip, I'll be disappointed.

    The specs will likely match most of the Android phones already on the market, but likely won't lead the way.

    Regardless, let's be frank: this device will live or die based on the OS, Meego, and the overall user experience, from the second you turn it on. If Nokia can deliver a user experience, as cool/pleasant as somebody picking up and playing with an iPhone/iPad for the first time, they will have won most of the battle.

    The rest is largely marketing and spurring app development for the platform. Still, Nokia 're-introducing' its brand in the U.S. is not going to be easy, at all.

    I mention the States because as per CEO Kallasvuo, Meego was developed mainly to compete in the U.S. and Western Europe/developed markets.
