The Finnish manufacturer does not wish to reproduce the same error as last year and prefers to delay the release of its next flagship to integrate the latest processor signed Qualcomm.
The successor to the Nokia 9 Pureview will wait a few more months. The manufacturer was to present the new version of its high-end phone at the beginning of this year 2019 (possibly at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February) but the Nokia 9.1 should remain in the boxes and be announced later in the year.
A future smartphone finally up to the competition
In question, the reception for the less mixed Nokia 9 Pureview when it was released last year. This very ambitious phone was supposed to compete directly with the most efficient mobiles from Samsung or Huawei, especially in the field of photography, all for a more affordable price.
Only, the returns were very lukewarm and the first buyers complained about the very disappointing performance of the device. Nokia had then chosen a Snapdragon 845 processor from 2018 and a limited RAM.
Nokia would offer a mid-range phone instead
The brand does not want to reproduce the same error and preferred this year to delay the release of its high-end in order to integrate the Snapdragon 865 chip, the latest model from Qualcomm which will undoubtedly equip the most popular phones. powerful from different global manufacturers.
For the occasion, Nokia should also change the name of its device, which would no longer be called Nokia 9.1 but Nokia 9.2, and the phone would benefit from 5G connectivity.
Nokia would have another mid-range phone to present this year, also 5G compatible, equipped with a Snapdragon 765 processor and a three-sensor photo module.
