HMD Global seems to be working on a Nokia-branded flagship since the last couple of months. This device is expected to be the much anticipated Nokia 9 PureView. Initial rumors indicated that the company is planning to launch the device at the end of the year but subsequent information pointed out that HMD Global seems to have pushed the launch to early next year. As previously reported, the device is likely to come with a Penta-camera setup on the back of the device while bringing back the PureView branding. PureView branding has long been considered as the hallmark of smartphone photography after the company launched its revolutionary Nokia 808 Pureview back in 2012.

A recent report has indicated that it is possible that HMD Global will add wireless charging on the Nokia 9 PureView. According to a report by GizmoChina, two new Nokia-branded wireless chargers have been spotted on the Internet. As pointed in the report, these chargers were spotted on the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) website after receiving the necessary certification. The first wireless charging accessory here looks like any other wireless charging pad in circular disc-like shape with model number DT-10W. The model number indicates that it will support faster 10W charging in the device.

The second wireless charging accessory appears to be a “Portable Wireless Charger” according to the listing on the page. It comes with a model number DT-500 and looks like a regular rectangular power bank with what appears to be a standard USB Type-A and a USB Type-C port. It also comes with a power button on the side of the charger.

As noted in the report, it is likely that HMD Global may be planning to launch these wireless charging accessories along with the launch of the Nokia 9 PureView and possibly any other high-end smartphone by the company. The certification also hints that the official launch of the upcoming device is right around the corner. The company has not revealed any information about the accessories or the anticipated device at the time of writing.
