We are waiting for the Nokia flagship smartphone Nokia 9 PureView for almost a year, the device longest awaited flagship smartphones in history. Ever since HMD Global started making handsets under the Nokia name people have been anxiously anticipating the company’s first true contender for the top of the line space. And now we may actually be only one month away from the official unveiling of the Nokia 9.
That is, at least, what a new rumor claims, reported by Russian publication Nokia Anew. Apparently the info comes from some unnamed “foreign sources”, and they also say that we should expect “many surprises” from the announcement – as if the unique rear camera setup wasn’t enough.
Earlier the live image of Nokia 9 PureView was spotted on Instagram, shows a hand holding up the device. We cannot verify the authenticity of the image, but the device pretty much looks like what past leaked images have shown us. The latest image shows the Nokia 9 PureView from the back, which is arguably the most interesting part of the device because it is where HMD will be adding a penta-camera system.
As per the report the Nokia 9 PureView is supposedly becoming official during the last week of January. If this pans out, it means HMD Global will be holding a separate event for the reveal, away from both CES and MWC.
The Nokia 9 PureView was initially expected to launch in September with a Snapdragon 845 SoC, but HMD reportedly had to delay the launch due to some technical issues. The phone is now expected to launch at CES in January or MWC in February, so we expect it to run the next-gen Snapdragon 855 chipset.
Apart from running Android 9 Pie, the Nokia 9 PureView is also reported to come with a 6-inch display, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. It is also said to house a large 4,150mAh battery, but there has been no word yet on wireless charging support.
