The latest info comes from the Twitter user, @nokia_anew, who posted a string of thread revealing this information. According to the source, just like all other flagships launched in 2020, the Nokia 9.3 PureView will feature a 120Hz display panel. Moreover, it’s not sure what display panel the brand will opt for but going by Nokia’s history, we can expect it to be an AMOLED panel. The Twitter user further go on to reveal that the Nokia 9.3 will most likely ditch the simultaneously firing camera setup for a more conventional one that will be headlined by a 108MP sensor accompanied by a 64MP lens. Apparently, the brand decided on the 108MP sensor after testing out 20MP, 24MP and 48MP sensors. The source also confirms that one camera will come with OIS capabilities.

Previous rumours have hinted that the flagship will feature Snapdragon 865 processor, an elevating selfie camera or an under-display camera, and Android 10 in its stock iteration.

In other news, Juho Sarvikas, CPO HMD Global, might have dropped a massive hint regarding the colour variant of the upcoming flagship. In response to a poll by the same Twitter user, Sarvikas replied, “I don’t know whats going on here (as usual). I’m more like Polar Night and something new bold like we have with copper for lighter color…” Chances are high that we might see these two colour options – Polar Night along with a “bold and lighter” copper shade on the upcoming flagship.
