Nokia is back in the game of smartphones with many of its new releases. The Nokia 9.1 PureView has been on the news a lot lately. Nokia started working on this sequel a few months after the launch of the original penta-camera smartphone.
The new Nokia 9.1 PureView was supposed to launch this year. However, the launch will now take place next year.
Nokia started working on the original Nokia 9 PureView back in 2018. One of the main highlights of the device was its penta-camera setup. It came sporting 5 Zeiss camera lenses. The device launched with the Snapdragon 845, 2018’s flagship chipset. However, the Nokia 9 PureView eventually only launched earlier this year. This means it launched with an outdated chipset, as other devices were already running on Snapdragon 855.
Now, it appears that the Nokia 9.1 PureView will launch next year with the Snapdragon 855 or Snapdragon 855+. At that time, many phones will already likely be working with the Snapdragon 865 SoC. The Snapdragon 865 chipset will launch in December.
HMD Global has disclosed that the next handset will use Carl Zeiss powered cameras. However, the penta-camera setup will not be unique to Nokia by 2020.
