Last year, Nokia 9 PureView unveiled the world’s first rear-facing five-camera phone at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2019), and the only thing that’s sickening after it went on sale is the still-older Qualcomm SnapDragon845 processor. A few months after the phone went on sale, there are rumours that HMD is developing the Nokia 9.1 PureView, which features the Qualcomm SnapDragon 855. It was later announced that the smartphone’s release date had been postponed from October last year to the second quarter of 2020.
Nokia Anew, a well-known whistleblower, tweeted today that HMD is developing a Nokia 9.2 PureView with a Qualcomm SnapSnapdragon 865 processor, which will go on sale by the end of 2020. The leaked tweet did not refer to nokia 9.1 PureView, but Nokia 9.2 PureView. The delay in the arrival of the phone is due to the company’s desire to use the more powerful Snapdragon 865 chipset, and could be the company’s first flagship phone to support a 5G network.
HMD Global should not launch its flagship phone at next month’s Mobile World Congress (WMC) 2020, following news of the delay in Nokia 9.2 PureView. But the Finnish company confirmed in December that it would release a smartphone with a Snapdragon 765 processor at MWC 2020. This will be a 5G phone with impressive camera capability.
