The Nokia 9 PureView was an ambitious device that mostly fell flat on its face due to a number of factors. HMD Global is working on the successor to that device, the Nokia 9.1 PureView, and we finally have our first look at a phone that's set to walk the same path as its predecessor.

The Nokia 9 PureView was unveiled at the start of the year, over a year after the first set of reports of the device made its way to the grapevine, and after a series of delays. HMD Global is billed a to release the direct successor to that device, the Nokia 9.1 PureView, and a new leak has finally given us our first look at the phone.

The Nokia 9.1 is depicted in a case, showing a design that looks quite similar to the Nokia 9. The penta-camera array remains unchanged in a world where all the major OEMs are adopting more eye-friendly designs. The phone does appear to be a tad wider than the Nokia 9 PureView, and it would seem that some minor tweaks have been made to the phone's side profiles.

It's unknown when the Nokia 9.1 PureView will be released. A leak a few weeks ago claimed the flagship wouldn't see the sun until 2020, a baffling move, as it would, just like the Nokia 9, make the Nokia 9.1 PureView dead on arrival. The Nokia 9.1 will almost definitely be powered by the Snapdragon 855, and a 2020 release would mean it will be launched in a period when other new devices debut the next-gen Snapdragon 865.
