Nokia 9 release date, price, news and leaks

by admin January 15, 2019 at 1:43 pm

The Nokia 9 PureView looks almost guaranteed to show up this year, with a vast number of leaks and rumors surrounding the flagship phone and its unique penta-lens camera system.

Yes, believe it or not, there are plenty of Nokia 9 PureView rumors suggesting the handset will boast five (5!) rear cameras – which would certainly make the new Nokia 9 stand out from the smartphone crowd.

Prior to the launch of the Nokia 8 (in September 2017) and 8 Sirocco (in February 2018) it had been a long time since we’d seen a Nokia flagship, but we’re in line for another in the form of the Nokia 9 (or Nokia 9 PureView as it may be called).

Update: The latest Nokia 9 PureView leaks points to a launch before MWC 2019 in February, and it may pack the latest power under the hood.

HMD Global – the company that’s revived the Nokia name on smartphones – has so far otherwise unleashed a handful of entry-level and mid-range phones, like the Nokia 3.1 Plus, Nokia 5.1, Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 8.1. 

The top-end Nokia 9 launch date looks set to be in February of 2019, and it could be positioned to truly compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S10, Sony Xperia XZ4 and Huawei P30 – something the Nokia 8 Sirocco wasn’t able to do with the class of flagships it went up against at launch.

You’ll find all the latest Nokia 9 leaks, news and rumors below, along with our expert analysis, and as soon as we hear anything new we’ll add it to this article.

Cut to the chase

  • What is it? The new Nokia Android flagship
  • When is it out? Tipped to launch February 2019
  • What will it cost? It will have a high-end price

Nokia 9 PureView

The Nokia 8 Sirocco was the last Nokia flagship – we’re hoping for more from the Nokia 9 PureView

Nokia 9 release date

The latest Nokia 9 PureView release date rumor points to pre-MWC 2019 launch in February, which moves us away from previous Nokia 9 release date rumors of a late January announcement.

It also goes against another Nokia 9 PureView launch date theory, which hand the handset arriving at MWC 2019 in late February.

A pre-MWC launch could potentially see the Nokia 9 PureView clash with the Samsung Galaxy S10, which is due to launch on February 20.

Other than that all we have to go on is a claim from another leaker that it’s “coming soon”, and a comment from a representative for HMD Global, who has hinted that the phone is on the way, and that it will have a larger screen “to meet the needs of absolutely all users” – though they may have been talking about the Sirocco.

TechRadar’s take: The Nokia 9 will probably land before the end of February, but exactly when remains unclear. Our money’s on an MWC/pre-MWC launch.

Another screen rumor puts the display at 5.9 inches, adding that it will have an 18:9 aspect ratio.
