It was recently reported that the launch of Nokia’s next flagship has been delayed, but now it looks like we have a clearer idea of when we can expect the smartphone to be unveiled. According to a report by NokiaPowerUser, the company plans to release the Nokia 9.3 PureView around that time, along with a mid-range smartphone called the Nokia 7.3. HMD Global has reportedly gone ahead with the testing of the two smartphones. However, the report also noted that is currently a tentative plan and a lot depends on the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic.
Leaks suggest that the Nokia 9.3 PureView will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC with support for 5G connectivity. It is tipped to features a 6.29-inch QHD+ pOLED display. It will most likely come with Android 10 pre-installed. Details about optics are not yet known. However, one can expect it to feature a multi-camera configuration at the back, similar to the Nokia 9.1 PureView.
Details about the Nokia 7.3 are not yet known, but reports suggest that the phone will most likely be a mid-range smartphone powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 700-series SoC.
Nokia’s current flagship smartphone, the Nokia 9.1 PureView offered decent specifications at launch, like a penta-camera setup with Zeiss optics. However, by the time it was launched in India, most of the competing phones had surpassed it. As such, it didn’t saw much success in the country.
In related news, HMD Global has announced that it was rolling out the Android 10 update for the Nokia 4.2 and the Nokia 3.2. This also means that nine Nokia smartphones have now been updated to the latest version of the Android OS.
