Nokia 9 PureView Release Date, Price & Specification Rumours

Nokia's long-awaited 9 PureView might arrive in January. We outline the rumours on the flagship's launch date, price and specifications.

When the Nokia 8 Sirocco arrived in February at MWC we told you it was the Nokia 9 we'd been waiting for. And it was, sort of. We also pointed out that it was running a 2017 Snapdragon 835 processor rather than the 2018 Snapdragon 845, and we've since learned this is because - obviously - the Nokia 8 Sirocco was the 'Nokia 9 2017' and the Nokia 9 2018 is yet to come.

It turns out the Nokia 9 is actually the Nokia 9 PureView, according to Roland Quandt, after HMD recently acquired the trademark. In the past PureView cameras have had very high megapixel counts. This doesn't mean the Nokia 9 will also pile on the pixels, but we should certainly be looking at a decent camera setup.

When Is The Nokia 9 Release Date?
Despite rumours of a luanch in 2018 from the likes of Nokia Power User, that didn't happen. An event on 4 October was for the Nokia 7.1 instead.

So the wait for the Nokia 9 PureView goes on but it will apparently arrive at the end of January according to Nokia Anew (translated). The site says an event will take place in the last week of the month, placing it oddly between CES and MWC.

How Much Will The Nokia 9 Cost?
It's common sense to assume the flagship Nokia 9 will cost more than the Nokia 8 Sirocco, which costs £649. With this in mind we'd expect the Nokia 9 to be priced around £700-£750.

What Are The Rumoured Features And Specifications For The Nokia 9?
The most exciting rumour we've heard about the upcoming Nokia 9 is that it will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, which is of course the tech we are hoping to see in the Galaxy S10 and OnePlus 6T. If Nokia can get out ahead of its rivals with that tech it could be garnering column inches for all the right reasons.

Nokia Power User claims this rumour has been confirmed by one of its trusted sources in China, but that this source also says the Nokia 9 could sport a screen notch in order to maximise screen area.

Other specification rumours include a Snapdragon 845 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, a Zeiss 22Mp dual-lens camera and a larger 5.7in Quad-HD+ POLED screen.

We'd expect it to feature the same high-end tech as the Nokia 8 Sirocco, which means you can also look forward to Qi wireless charging and IP67 waterproofing. There's no headphone jack on that phone, so expect to rely on USB-C for audio here, too.

We'll bring you more Nokia 9 rumours as we hear them.
