HMD Global hasn’t said anything about when we can expect its next flagship to arrive. However, there have been more than a few leaks about the Nokia 9 PureView. A promotional video for the handset popped online just a couple of weeks ago. While it was expected that HMD would unveil this device in January 2019, it seems that the launch has again been rolled back to MWC 2019.
It was initially said that the Nokia 9 PureView would be launched before the end of 2018. That didn’t happen. Reports at that time said that due to certain issues, it had been decided to postpone the launch to MWC 2019 in February.
However, reports started suggesting just a few weeks ago that HMD had decided to push the launch forward and announce the device in January 2019. The decision had apparently been made after recognizing the anticipation among fans.
HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas has teased potential new product announcements at MWC 2019 on Twitter this weekend. Additional information has surfaced since then from unofficial sources that the company has decided to not launch the Nokia 9 PureView in January and do it at MWC 2019 in Barcelona next month instead.
If HMD Global doesn’t send invites to a launch event in the next couple of days, it can reasonably be assumed that the launch won’t be taking place in January at least. As for the device, it’s believed to have a 5.99 inch display, Snapdragon 845 with 6GB of RAM, 128GB storage, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. It’s marquee feature will be the PureView-branded five camera system at the back.
