HMD Global will reportedly launch its next flagship Nokia phone in late 2020. Dubbed Nokia 9.2 PureView, this Nokia phone might use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 SoC, which is one of the main reasons for the delay. Tipster Nokia Anew (@nokia_anew) reported on Twitter that the launch of the Nokia 9.2 PureView could be delayed to autumn of this year.
A few months back, it was reported that the company will launch the successor to the Nokia 9 PureView in 2019, but that didn’t happen. The Nokia 9.1 PureView smartphone was widely rumored to debut with a Snapdragon 855 SoC. Now, a few reports suggest that the sequel to the Nokia 9 PureView could be called the Nokia 9.2 PureView.

This Nokia phone is most likely to feature Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC. This also means that the smartphone will offer support for 5G as this processor is being bundled with the X55 5G modem only. Apart from the flagship chip, one of the biggest highlights of this phone will be cameras. The original Nokia 9 PureView device offers a penta-lens camera setup at the back.
The new handset is likely to feature an upgraded penta-camera setup on the rear. The rest of the specifications, features and design details of the Nokia 9.2 PureView are currently under wraps. To recall, HMD Global launched the Nokia 9 PureView device in India last year. The device was first unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February 2019. The handset comes with a price tag of Rs 49,999 in the country.
