A new leak suggests that Nokia may join the ranks of smartphone brands that make foldable devices. However, the launch of such a product is thought not to occur until late 2020 or early 2021. In addition, the HMD Global company has been said to have resurrected some accessories previously nixed by its parent.

Nokia is the latest smartphone brand to have become linked to the possibility of its own foldable smartphone. This new rumor has been published by a blog based on information from a "reliable" source also responsible for the leak that alleges that the 9.2 PureView is this company's next flagship, despite the fact that there is no 9.1.

This phone is thought to rock the Snapdragon 865 processor, but not a 3.5mm port. Its rumored foldable counterpart may not launch alongside it, however: the 9.2 PureView is now thought to debut in mid-2020, whereas the potential flexible-display device may not do so until 2021.

These new Nokia leaks also point to additional launches for some new non-smartphone devices from the brand, even though HMD Global had reportedly cancelled them in the past. They may comprise some or all of a list that include devices such as a mini projector, a mini printer, a selfie light, a power bank, a fitness tracker and 2 smartwatches.

Of these, the wearables are the most plausible of future Nokia accessories: fans of the company and its industrial design may be glad to see them, and it seems that every smartphone brand and its original parent are preparing inaugural products for the markets in question in any case.
