The Nokia 9 Pureview has been expected to make its debut at MWC 2019. But if the latest rumour is anything to go by, then the brand will instead release it ahead of the event and probably as soon as the last week of January.
As per a report by GSMArena, the handset is expected to be unveiled in January with it going on sale by March. The website claims the reason for the rush is because HMD Global doesn’t want people to be comparing the Nokia 9 Pureview sporting a Snapdragon 845 SoC to 2019 flagship handsets that will be equipped with a Snapdragon 855 chipset.
The report goes on to add that a Nokia 9 with a Snapdragon 855 SoC will debut in August and it will support 5G networks. The camera on the model that will launch later this year is said to be better as well.
The Nokia 9 Pureview has recently made an appearance in a leaked promotional video and it lines up with leaked images that have been floating around. With it, we learn about some interesting features that the handset will boast. Firstly, the handset will run on Android 9.0 Pie and secondly, it will feature a 5-camera layout with Zeiss Optics. The device once launched will have an edge-to-edge 5.99-inch 2K HDR PureDisplay and sport an in-display fingerprint scanner like most of the current flagships such as the Vivo NEX and OnePlus 6T.
The Nokia 9 PureView will also be Qi compatible which means that it will support wireless charging. The handset is powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC, the same one used in the current crop of flagships from Samsung, OnePlus and LG. Paired with the SoC will be 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. As of now, this looks like the only configuration it will be available in.
