The Nokia 9 PureView was expected to arrive at MWC 2019 in late February, but a recent report claims that this upcoming handset with no less than five cameras on the back will be unveiled before the end of January and will become available for purchase in India on February 6 for a price of around US$820 (8/128 GB model).

When two or three cameras are not enough, going for more might be a good idea. Obviously, it might also be a bad idea, but the upcoming Nokia 9 PureView will definitely stand out from the crowd in terms of design. However, if the latest rumor turns into reality, this highly-anticipated flagship device will arrive sooner than expected.

Since the Nokia 9 PureView was not shown at CES 2019, it would have been natural to launch it at MWC 2019 in Barcelona next month. That might be the truth, but a recent exclusive report by 91mobiles claims that this flagship will be unveiled later this month and will go on sale on February 6.

The list of specs and features mentioned by 91mobiles is in line with other recent leaks and rumors, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 8 GB of memory, 128 GB of internal storage space, a 5.99-inch QHD AMOLED display, a 16 + 16 + 8 + 5 MP main camera setup (there is apparently a mistake here, because the main camera should have five sensors, not four), a 12 MP selfie shooter, all driven by a 4,150 mAh battery with Quick Charging 3.0 via USB Type-C. The operating system onboard will be Android 9.0 Pie, of course.

The expected price of less than US$820 does not look too high since the Nokia 9 PureView is also expected to feature a water- and dust-proof body, as well as an under-display fingerprint reader. We just need to wait for a few more weeks until the official release, so we'd better take all the above with a grain of salt until then.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
