The post ends with the silhouette of a smartphone and the date of the launch. This could mean that we will see the launch of just the Nokia 7.1 Plus tomorrow. However, a surprise from Nokia could also be on the way in the form of the Nokia 9. HMD Global had recently acquired the PureView trademark and it is rumoured that it will be using it in the upcoming Nokia 9 flagship. This adds strength to the rumours that the Nokia 9 has a penta camera setup.
Nokia 7.1 Plus:
The Nokia 7.1 Plus has been subject to many leaks before its launch, with the latest taking place today. According to the alleged renders, the device has a notch on its display and a dual camera setup along with a fingerprint reader on the back. The Nokia 7.1 Plus is reported to have a 5.84 inch IPS LCD display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and 2244 x 1080 px resolution display. It runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC with 3 GB and 4 GB RAM options. It will have microSD card support with 32 GB and 64 GB memory options.
The device is said to have a 12 MP + 5 MP rear camera setup and a 8 MP front camera. Along with this, a report claims that the price of the upcoming device has been leaked and that it will start at around Rs 29,000 in India.
Nokia 9 PureView:
Although we might not see this smartphone being launched tomorrow, we are adding it as a bonus. The device has picked up a lot fo attention due to its unique penta camera setup. While the design isn’t appealing to many, the functionality of the 5 cameras could be something to look out for. The design is already patented by Zeiss, which adds strength to the rumours. Also, recent reports stating that the Nokia 9 will carry the PureView trademark push the odds in favour of such a device. The PureView trademark is only carried by devices which have a groundbreaking camera setup. Therefore, a lot can be expected form the Nokia 9.
