There have been a lot of noise surrounding the true Nokia flagship since HMD Global started releasing phones under the brand name Nokia. There have been lots of flagship level phone that has come out of the company but still not something that can compete with the market leaders like Galaxy S and Note line, the iPhones, Google Pixel and Huawei Mate and P series.
But that might be about to change with the much rumored Nokia 9 Purview. The rumor suggests that the phone might land with Penta-lens camera setup on the rear panel a first for the smartphone industry. The rumors suggested that the phone might land sometime next year but thanks to a new leak we can assume that the phone will land sometime during the first month of next year.
Renowned leakster Evan Blass gave us a glimpse of the phone in his new tweet published today. Have a look at the Twitter post below:

Since the leak is from Evan Blass himself we can assume that these might be the true looks of the phone itself. We can see in the snippet that the phone will be sporting the somewhat horrifying setup of five camera lenses the Trypophobia-inducing as 9to5google called it, along with the led flash. The phone will also be present with industry standard glass back and hopefully support wireless charging.
The snippet also give us a glimpse to its bare back which means the fingerprint sensor will be located underneath the display like the Oneplus 6T and Mate 20 Pro. We can see from the snippet that the sensor will be located at almost center of the display. That’s a relief as we won’t have to readjust the grip just to reach the fingerprint sensor. And the phone runs on Android One (Yay!).
Other than these information we don’t have much to go through. As every other flagships in 2019 the device is expected to be powered with the new Snapdragon 855, have 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal memory as base storage. We have yet to hear about the price and availability but everything we have gotten so far is pointing toward a trued flagship that can deliver in every front and give the market leaders a run for their money.
So what do you think of the Nokia 9 Pureview? Are you excited about the device? What would you like to see from Nokia in their flagship device? Let me know in the comments.
