The rumour mill has been claiming that HMD Global will release the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 in the coming month. Now, a fresh leak shared by NokiaPowerUser claims that company will be releasing the Nokia 9.1 PureView flagship by Q4 this year. As the name suggests, it will be arriving as an enhanced version of the penta-lens camera setup enabled Nokia 9 PureView that was announced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February this year.
The publication had claimed in June that the Finnish firm is working two 5G smartphones. The report had claimed that one of them is powered by a new Snapdragon 7XX chipset whereas the other one is a flagship phone fueled by the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform. At that time, it had claimed that the SD855 Nokia 5G phone could be the successor of the Nokia 9 PureView. The fresh report from the publication reveals that the smartphone will be arriving as Nokia 9.1 PureView in the last quarter of 2019. Previously, it was speculated to go official in Q3.
The reason why the arrival of the Nokia 9.1 PureView has been pushed to Q4 is that the company wants to fix some problems related some of the major selling features of the phone, such as the penta-lens camera system. The publication has further stated that the Finnish firm wants to evade the bad press that the Nokia 9 PureView had encountered when it was made official.
HMD Global had partnered with Light, a US-based digital photography company for the cameras of the Nokia 9 PureView. The two companies are expected to continue their partnership for enhanced camera performance on the upcoming Nokia 9.1 PureView. The smartphone is expected to offer better performance in departments like video and low-light photography. With Light camera technology, the Finnish firm has reportedly improved the camera speed with a combination of better exposure and enhanced software algorithms.
Since the Nokia 9.1 PureView is expected to arrive at the end of the year, it could be equipped with the latest Android Q OS. Lastly, the smartphone is rumoured to be equipped with a punch-hole display like the Nokia X71 smartphone.
