HMD Global has launched a bunch of Nokia-branded smartphones in the last couple of years. While there have been several premium-looking handsets like the Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia lovers are still waiting for a really top-end flagship. Meanwhile, the reports of an upcoming Nokia 9 PureView smartphone have been churning out of the rumour mills for quite a while now. Now, a new leak has hinted at a few of the features that we can expect in the handset. According to the most recent report, the alleged Nokia 9 PureView was codenamed’Olympic’ and was spotted running Android 9 Pie.
The long-anticipated Nokia 9 using its rumoured Penta-lens camera installment was anticipated to be HMD Global’s rumoured flagship for 2018 despite being postponed on multiple occasions. However, a previous report had promised that the smartphone might not be introduced this year at all and instead launch at MWC 2019 first next season. Several reports in the past have suggested that the smartphone might be called Nokia 9 PureView, especially after HMD Global obtained the signature out of Microsoft in August. As per a report from LoveNokia, the forthcoming Nokia 9 PureView bears the codename’Olympic; and runs the latest Android Pie using the most-recent November security patch.
The Nokia 9 PureView is expected to include a Penta-camera installation and home an in-display fingerprint sensor. The report asserts that the ex-employees who had been a part of the imaging division of Nokia, are now a part of HMD Global’s team. The most recent item of information was spotted from the servers of FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Taiwan-based Foxconn, which generates electronic devices for a number of businesses.
LoveNokia notes that the smartphone that they spotted is a test device of the Chinese model, instead of the final retail variation. The report also provides a screenshot that was seized in the FIH server, showcasing the five Olympic rings. That is in line with previous reports that indicated the Nokia 9 PureView includes five cameras at the back.
Meanwhile, tipster’Nokia anew’ has published a tweet bringing to light an internal decision within HMD International. As stated by the tweet, the business has hinted that fresh Nokia 9 PureView could start a new collection of PureView tablets.
