Apparently, Nokia is developing a new mid-range smartphone with a curved design and a 120 Hz OLED display. With three rear-facing cameras, including a 64 MP sensor, the Nokia X21 PureView is also expected to launch with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, among other features.

Earlier this year, HMD Global announced that it would no longer be producing flagship Nokia smartphones, with the Nokia brand focused instead on standing 'for something very different'. Purportedly, one of HMD Global's next Nokia smartphones will be the X21 PureView, or the X21 5G. Seemingly the successor to the Nokia X20, the Nokia X21 PureView has a simpler design than its predecessor with no elaborate camera housing.

Instead, the X21 PureView has a camera housing that would not look out of place on a recent Moto G series smartphone. Reputedly, HMD Global has included 64 MP primary, 13 MP ultra-wide and ToF camera sensors. PureView and Zeiss branding appear on the camera housing too, although it is unclear how these will tie into the device's camera features. While details about the X21 PureView's front-facing camera are unknown at this stage, the device is rumoured to rely on a 6.7-inch OLED panel that operates at 120 Hz. Presumably, the large display will offer a 1080p resolution as well.

Elsewhere, the X21 5G is billed as containing a 5,000 mAh battery and a Snapdragon 695 5G chipset. However, @nlopt70 believes that HMD Global could go with the Snapdragon 480 Plus instead, another 5G chipset that is approximately a third slower than the Snapdragon 695 5G. Additionally, the Nokia X21 PureView is anticipated to be available with two memory configurations, starting with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Reportedly, an 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage version will be available, but it is unclear when HMD Global will announce the device yet, nor how much either memory configuration will cost.
