Nokia 9.2 Pureview is the company’s 2020 flagship. The device will be launched much later in the year probably in the last quarter of the year.
The release delay is pegged on HMD Global’s plans for using Qualcomm’s latest chipset. The company is looking to power the 9.2 PureView with Snapdragon 865 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 855 or 855+ chipset.
HMD Global resurrected Nokia brand in 2017 with the launch of affordable smartphones with stock Android OS. Since then, the brand has been consequently launching mid-range and flagship smartphones.
It seems that the Finland-based HMD Global is trying to increase its offerings in the market. From the look of things, the company seems focused on the entry-level segment rather than the premium smartphone category to grab a bigger market share. It remains to be seen how this strategy works for the company.
From the latest reports, the company all set to unveil its next flagship smartphone — the Nokia 9.2 PureView, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor.
The device is the successor to the Nokia 9 PureView. This phone will most likely have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 SoC, which means it will be a 5G smartphone since this SoC is being bundled with the X55 5G modem only.
The focus for this phone will most likely be its cameras. The Nokia 9.2 PureView could pick up from where the Nokia 9 PureView left off. It will feature an upgraded Penta-camera setup at the back.
Following a tweet by Nokia anew, the announcement of the Nokia 9.2 is likely to be delayed due to the replacement of the processor on the Snapdragon 865.
Some sources reveal that the Nokia 9.2 won’t feature “Light camera technology” since the company doesn’t offer post-launch support. The company is coming up with a “great camera” with a big sensor. This is according to an old Nokia camera partner.
There are no much details revealed about the device ahead f the launch. But with the other primary hardware features of the upcoming Nokia. The rumour mill suggests improved Penta-lens camera setup along with other features.
Also, the Snapdragon 865 process comes with an integrated Snapdragon X555 5G modem. Chances are the Nokia 9.2 PureView will be 5G enabled.
Also, there is a high possibility that the Nokia 9.2 PureView will run on the on a custom Android 10 Pie OS. It will as well come with the Google Play Store.
