Rumor: Nokia's next flagship smartphone could launch in November
- HMD Global is rumored to host a Nokia launch event in November.
- The event may finally see the launch of the long-awaited Nokia 9.3 PureView.
HMD Global’s Nokia launched its last true flagship smartphone — the Nokia 9 PureView — over a year ago. It wasn’t the brand’s greatest device, but it was undoubtedly a daring departure from the norm. Now, a new report suggests that its long-awaited successor could arrive before the end of the year.
According to a report by Nokia Power User, the Nokia 9.3 PureView could finally make its debut at a rumored “major launch event” in November. The publication’s sources add that the event is still in its “planning phase” and the date is not yet confirmed.
Nokia 9.3 PureView: Late to the party
The next Nokia flagship has become something of an urban legend. The phone was rumored to launch in mid-2019 but has reportedly faced several delays since. Other Nokia phones have been rocked by delays this year. HMD Global last week launched the Nokia 8.3 5G six months after its initial announcement.
At least there is no shortage of leaks and rumors for the Nokia 9.3. A report from May mentioned we could see 8K recording support on the Nokia flagship, which could signal the inclusion of the Snapdragon 865 chipset. This alone would be a marked improvement over the Nokia 9 PureView’s Snapdragon 845.
It’s not clear if we’ll see that penta-lens camera setup from Light return either, especially considering the creator of the array’s departure from the smartphone industry.
