The Nokia 9 PureView is still the most powerful Nokia phone but definitely not the most powerful phone you can buy now. It recently launched in India, nearly half a year since it was first announced. A report says a successor is coming soon and it is reported to arrive as the Nokia 9.1 Pureview.
According to NokiaPowerUser, the Nokia 9.1 PureView was originally scheduled for a Q3 launch but it has now been pushed forward to Q4 based on info from a source.
The postponement is said to be as a result of some unresolved issues with certain aspects of the phone such as its camera. We hope the delay is worth it, so as to avoid a repeat of the negative reviews the Nokia 9 PureView suffered.
With respect to features and specs, HMD Global will continue its partnership with Light. The camera performance should get a significant improvement especially in low-light and video recording. It is also said to be faster thanks to a better processor and better software algorithms developed with help from Light.
The Nokia 9.1 PureView is also said to feature a punch-hole display like that of the Nokia X71 and there are reports of prototypes with this design. Under the hood of the phone will be a Snapdragon 855 processor. It will also run Android Q out of the box and of course have 5G support. We are not sure if there will be an LTE-only version.
