HMD is working on a new flagship Nokia device. According to rumors, the Finnish company will launch the new device at MWC 2020. There were earlier reports suggesting that it would be the Nokia 9.1 with Snapdragon 855+. Eventually, we reported that HMD was allegedly delaying the launch of the device to accommodate the Snapdragon 865 chipset. This is probably in an attempt to avoid what happened with the Nokia 9 PureView.

New information from Nokiapoweruser has shown that HMD is indeed shelving the Nokia 9.1 PureView. So, what we will be getting instead is the Nokia 9.2 PureView.

Nokiapoweruser claims that it got the information from a tip. The tip also claims that HMD will launch the Nokia 9.2 in the first half of 2020. However, there is no official information about this from HMD at the moment.

Also, according to the tip, the Nokia 9.2 PureView will come with a “great camera”. But it will not feature the “Light camera technology” that was a part of the Nokia 9 PureView. The new camera will reportedly use a big sensor from an old Nokia camera partner like Toshiba.

When it comes to pricing, we believe that HMD will price the Nokia 9.2 PureView reasonably lower than other premium flagship devices out there. Even though it will feature the Snapdragon 865 chipset like the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and the OnePlus 8 Pro, it could come with a significantly lower price tag.
