While HMD Global has been pretty busy in the first 6 months of 2021, releasing quite a few new Nokia-branded devices around the world, that high-end smartphone we’ve been waiting for since 2019 is still nowhere to be found.
We can barely remember a time when we weren’t waiting for the successor to the Nokia 9 PureView, but that wait might finally be almost over, as a report suggests that the next flagship of the company (perhaps called the Nokia 10 or Nokia X60) will land before November 11.
This is reported by ITHome (a Chinese technology site), which claims to have heard this information from an executive at HMD Global (the company that makes Nokia smartphones). It is therefore a confirmation rather close to an officialization. The date of November 11 also makes sense, as it is a big buying day in China, and the company would understandably want the smartphone to be available on shelves before then.
That said, we still have many questions, especially about the name of this flagship. Nokia 9.2, Nokia 9.3, and Nokia 10 have all been featured at different times, with the most recent leaks pointing to the Nokia X60 or perhaps the Nokia X60 Pro.
Although a recent crazy rumor has hinted that the Nokia X60 5G may run on Huawei’s HarmonyOS instead of the world’s most popular mobile operating system, the latter company has itself refuted this speculation.
Saying that it will launch before November 11 also gives a window of around 4 months for the smartphone to launch, which leaves some doubt about the possible release date. And with this release seemingly focused on a Chinese shopping day, it’s possible that the launch will initially be just for China.
Hopefully, we won’t wait too long to get the Nokia 10 – or whatever its name – in the rest of the world, as rumors point to a smartphone with a penta-lens camera, consisting of a primary sensor. of 108 megapixels or maybe even 200 megapixels, a battery with a capacity of 6000 mAh and a screen with a refresh rate of 144 Hz. If all this comes to fruition, it could be one of the most interesting devices of the year.
