Nokia 9.3 PureView, Nokia 7.3 5G, and Nokia 6.3 release date tipped; Q4 2020 launch imminent
Although HMD Global did release refreshed versions of the Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000 not too long ago, it's been a while since we saw a Nokia-branded smartphone. Its release cycle may have gone in for a toss due to manufacturing complications. However, a new report says that we might not have to wait a whole lot longer for a Nokia smartphone.
Nokiapoweruser has obtained exclusive information which states that HMD Global will release the Nokia 9.3 PureView, Nokia 7.3 5G and Nokia 6.3 before the end of 2020. As its name somewhat suggests, the Nokia 9.3 PureView is the proverbial king of the hill. The flagship smartphone is expected to run Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC, a 6-inch screen clocked at 120Hz, and presumably a 108MP camera sensor.However, it will likely be an older Samsung ISOCELL HM1 or HM2 model, but that shouldn't perturb Nokia enthusiasts too much. One can only hope that Nokia doesn't repeat the Nokia 9 PureView's trypophobia-inducing camera design on the Nokia 9.3 PureView. It should be able to take on equally-specced Samsung and OnePlus offerings, at least on paper.
Earlier this year, a report emerged that Nokia would release a smartphone running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 SoC. The Nokia 7.5 5G is, in all likelihood, that smartphone. Another leak told us that the phone would come with four rear cameras, with a 48MP sensor at the helm. Some of its other specifications include a 6.3-inch FHD+ panel clocked at 90Hz and a 4,000mAh battery. Very little is known about the Nokia 6.3 at this point. If previous iterations of the smartphone are anything to go by, we can expect it to feature a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 6xx series chipset along with three, or maybe even four rear cameras.
Despite their somewhat underwhelming spec sheets, there is a legion of fans waiting with bated breath for Nokia's upcoming smartphones. What the devices lack in raw specs is made up for in tertiary, often overlooked factors like the build quality and software support. That, combined with Nokia's affordable prices, has effectively cemented its place in the mid-range market. On the other hand, breaching the flagship market is an entirely different ballgame, and one can only hope that the Nokia 9.3 PureView has what it takes to play in the big leagues.
