HMD Global has been developing a top-end Nokia flagship speculated to be Nokia 9 Pureview since earlier this year but it is not expected to be revealed until 2019. The company also recently acquired the Pureview trademark, which added to the rumour that the upcoming Nokia flagship would be called Nokia 9 Pureview. Now, a new report has revealed few details about the upcoming smartphone.
The Nokia smartphones are currently developed by HMD Global after it was re-introduced last year. However, the company in charge of manufacturing is FIH Mobile (a subsidiary of Foxconn, who manufacturers almost every electronic products including Apple). From the company’s servers, it was found that the upcoming Nokia 9 Pureview will be codenamed “Olympic”. The company’s hasn’t confirmed anything officially yet but it makes sense since Olympic symbols contains five rings, the same number of rear camera it is rumoured to sport.
The new leak also reveals the handset to come with Android 9 Pie currently running the November security patch. So we can expect it to be shipped with the latest version of Android along with the latest security patch. The device was previously planned to launch this autumn but was delayed until early 2019.
Except the optical configuration, other specs are expected to be same as the Nokia 9 scheduled to launch by the end of this year . It features a 6 inch display and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. It shipped with Android 8.1 Oreo and is backed by a 3,900 mAh battery. It is also rumoured to include a on-screen fingerprint sensor.
