One year after, we're yet to get a successor to the incredibly promising but ultimately disappointing penta-camera Nokia 9 PureView. The phone in question has apparently been delayed yet again, with Covid-19 touted as the reason this time.

The last time we received word about the successor to the Nokia 9 PureView, the report claimed it would ditch HMD Global's partnership with Light and that the phone would be launched sometime in the first half of the year. Apparently, though, there's been a change of plans.

Going by a new report by Nokiapoweruser, the launch of the Nokia 9 PureView's successor has yet again been pushed backward. The reason for that should be obvious, of course; Covid-19. HMD Global has developed a habit of delaying the release of its flagship phone, with the Nokia 9 PureView's launch pushed back several times, eventually leading to it being released with an outdated SoC. That trend continues now, albeit with a tangible reason this time out.

Even more curious is the fact that the source refers to the device as the Nokia 9.3. That's incredibly confusing as there was neither a Nokia 9.1 nor a Nokia 9.2. Jumping to what should be the fourth iteration is a tad surprising, although that could be in a bid to match the phone's model name with that of others in the company's lineup.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
