HMD Global, the parent company of Nokia, had unveiled the Nokia 9 PureView at MWC last year. The company is reportedly working on its successor, the Nokia 9.2.

Tipster Nokia Anew on Twitter claims that the brand has delayed the launch date of the upcoming flagship to autumn of this year. The tweet mentions that HMD Globals plans on launching the Nokia 9.2 with the Snapdragon 865 SoC. In July last year, it was reported that the company might debut the Nokia 9.1 with the Snapdragon 855 and 5G connectivity in Q4 2019. 

The Nokia 9 PureView was launched last year, but with Snapdragon 845 chipset that was announced in 2018.
