Nokia 9 PureView successor could be called Nokia 9.2 PureView.

Nokia 9.2 PureView is tipped to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset.

Nokia 9.2 PureView could launch in December 2020.

The Nokia 9 PureView successor is reportedly delayed this year, as per the latest rumour. The Nokia 9.2 Pureview, the company’s 2020 flagship is rumoured to be launched much later in the year. While the Nokia 9 Pureview was released in the first quarter of 2019, Nokia 9.2 Pureview may not show up till the fourth quarter of 2020. The reason for the delay is said to be 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+.

The latest rumour comes from a Russian Twitter account Nokia Anew (@nokia_anew), which tweeted that the announcement of the Nokia 9.2 is likely delayed to autumn of this year. To recall, when Nokia 9 Pureview was launched in 2019, it went with the flagship SoC of 2018. Hence, there were rumours of a  Nokia 9.1 PureView with a Snapdragon 855 SoC planned for early 2020, but that didn’t work out. Now, it seems like Nokia wants to stick with the with SoC available for its flagship.

The Nokia 9.2 PureView is tipped to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, which means it will be a 5G smartphone since this SoC is being bundled with the X55 5G modem. However, the USP of the smartphone is expected to be its cameras. It may pick up from where the predecessor left. We expect to see an improved penta-camera setup on the back of Nokia 9.2 PureView. As of now, the rest of the specifications remain unknown.

While most smartphone manaufacturers are going to make their big announcements next month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, HMD Global is not expected to announce the Nokia 9.2 PureView. It could launch in December 2020, as per the rumour.
