One of the most anticipated Nokia smartphones, the Nokia 9 PureView (and yes – along with its penta-lens camera setup!) is expected to debut in the last week of January 2019. Nokia brand licensee HMD Global was initially rumoured to bring the smartphone as its new flagship this year. However, delayed the launch due to some production line issues. The Nokia 9 was previously found to have a notch-less display and as many as five camera sensors. It is also likely to carry a Zeiss logo alongside the PureView branding.
A render hinting at the launch schedule of the Nokia 9 PureView has been leaked by a Russian tipster who uses the Nokia aNew Twitter account. The render indicates an image that matches the recent concept image of the Nokia 9. Further, it shows “one month” in the text, suggesting the launch date somewhere in the last week of January.
The leaked shows a large selfie camera and the notch-less display panel that has thin bezels on the left and right sides. The smartphone also appears to have a glass and metal sandwich design. The handset is also speculated to come with a 6-inch display, 8GB RAM, and 256GB onboard storage.
Previously, reports claimed that the Nokia 9 PureView will debut with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. However, HMD Global could pick the next-generation, Snapdragon 855 SoC to attract the customers looking for a new flagship handset.
The Nokia 9 could come with single and dual-SIM options and sport a curved display design. It could also have an in-display fingerprint sensor since its back panel is likely to be made of glass material.
