The Nokia 9 PureView was plagued by several launch delays that saw it finally released earlier this year, with an outdated SoC. Its successor, the Nokia 9.1 PureView, has apparently been hit with a similar delay.

The Nokia 9 PureView was one of the most anticipated devices of the year but it failed to live up to the hype due to a combination of poor launch management, its outdated SoC, and less than stellar real-life application. Nokia was said to be set to offer a successor with updated internals, a Nokia 9.1 PureView, but it would seem that the Nokia 9.1 will suffer from the same issues that plagued the Nokia 9.

According to a tweet by Nokia Anew, the Nokia 9.1 PureView won't be launched until Q2 2020. That's quite similar to what we had with the Nokia 9 this year. We're not sure why this is the case, but it's likely due to HMD Global still trying to work out the kinks in the phone's cameras. The Nokia 9 PureView was a relatively iffy point-and-shoot camera phone, and we hope the Nokia 9.1 is a bit more capable in that aspect.

Of course, the delayed launch does introduce a few issues. For one, what SoC will the Nokia 9.1 sport? By Q2 2020, all flagships will feature the upcoming Snapdragon 865. Will the Nokia 9.1? Likely not. We saw something similar with the Nokia 9, after all. And just like the Nokia 9, if the Nokia 9.1 launched in Q2 2020 with a Snapdragon 855, it'd be DOA to most.

The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football.
