The Nokia 9 PureView generated a lot of buzz due to its Penta-camera setup even though the hype died away soon after launch. Now, as we head towards 2020, new leaks regarding its successor have started emerging online. According to a new report by 91mobiles, Nokia’s second iteration of its current flagship will have a waterfall display similar to the first one we saw on the Vivo NEX 3. Now, this is interesting as Nokia had abandoned curved displays after the Nokia 8 Sirocco, but it’s possible the Finnish smartphone maker might bring it back.
Coming to the report, the publication has shared leaked renders that allegedly belong to the Nokia 9.1 PureView. Note that the rumour mill has been very quiet up till now regarding a successor of the handset and these are likely the very first renders. As depicted in the renders, the handset clearly has a waterfall display and almost no chin at the bottom. The top, however, is filled with all kinds of sensors including speakers and cameras. Coming to the rear, the Nokia 9.1 PureView has a circular camera module similar to the OnePlus 7T. Although this one has more cameras. There’s also a ToF sensor on the side along with an LED flash and an ambiance sensor.
The alleged Nokia 9.1 PureView is devoid of a 3.5mm jack and has a single speaker grill and a USB Type-C port. Now, these renders could very well be just concepts and not actually depictions of the real device. Especially since Nokia has had a very slow year in 2019. The Nokia 9 PureView launched in February, so we shouldn’t expect a successor until next year either.
