Building on the reports of the Nokia 9 PureView successor’s delayed launch in 2020, a new report claims that the company will launch the Nokia 9.2 in the first half of 2020. Nokia is said to have shelved its plan to launch a flagship with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Instead, it is reportedly focusing on a Nokia 9.2 with the newer Snapdragon 865 chipset. Another report claims that HMD Global is also working on a foldable phone.

According to a report from Nokia Power User, HMD Global may not launch a Nokia 9 PureView successor at MWC 2020. While the company is hosting an event at the tech exhibition, it is expected to launch a smartphone powered by Snapdragon 765 chipset. The Nokia 9.2 PureView is tipped to launch around 4 or 5 months later.

The report also states the upcoming flagship won’t be equipped with “Light camera technology” mainly because of the lack of post-launch support for the Nokia 9 PureView. The smartphone is rumoured to come with a big sensor from an old camera partner such as Toshiba to offer a “great camera” experience. The Nokia 9.2 is also reported to have a price tag close to that of the Nokia 8 to attract the masses.

The Nokia 9.2 could arrive with a bezel-less display and sport a 32MP or 48MP selfie shooter. However, the configuration of rear camera setup is not known yet. 

Moreover, it is reported that Nokia may have cancelled some accessories, like two smartwatches, a fitness tracker, a mini projector, a selfie light, a power bank, and a mini printer. However, it is expected to showcase wireless charging pods at MWC 2020.

Separately, Nokiamob.net reports that HMD Global is working on a foldable phone. It is said to be launched sometime in either late 2020 or early 2021 with a clamshell design that is similar to that of the Motorola Razr (2019).
