The new Nokia 9.3 PureView phone is one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2020, and new rumors suggest that HMD Global recently started to prepare for the launch for its commercial release in the fourth quarter.
Sources with close knowledge of the launch have revealed that listings for the official Nokia 9.3 PureView phone cases have started to pop up at retail stores. The screenshots and links have not been published at sources request, but NokiaPowerUser has confirmed they are authentic.
These new rumors line up with recent launch time rumors and now suggest the device could hit shelves around October. According to source NokiaPowerUser, the new phone is in pre-launch final phase testing at the moment and production is likely scheduled to start in September.
The Nokia 9 PureView successor will likely feature a 6.3-inch PureDisplay V3 complete with minimal bezels, an aluminum frame, and a glass body. To compete with other premium flagships, a 120Hz refresh rate is reportedly in plan too.
That will all be coupled with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset and 5G network connectivity. At least 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage as expected as well, although an 8/256GB version is said to be in the works.
Completing the new phone package is going to be an updated Penta camera module coming with Zeiss Optics and, according to the rumors, 8K video recording at 30fps. The selfie camera should boast a 32-megapixel resolution and may sit below the display.
HMD Global’s Nokia 9.3 PureView will likely go official in October at a dedicated launch event. There is no firm pricing information, however, some rumors point towards a $799 price point for the 6/128GB model.
