Nokia 9.3 PureView Launch Postponed To H2 2020

Nokia 9.3 PureView launch has reportedly been postponed to the second half of this year. The phone was initially planned to launch at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020 but was delayed to sometime later in the first half as the event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, a new report states that the Nokia 9.3 PureView launch will further be delayed due to supply chain issues that have emerged due to the pandemic.

There were several speculations regarding the name of the phone as well but, the most recent reports state that it will be called the Nokia 9.3 PureView.

According to the report by Nokiapoweruser, HMD Global still has the Nokia 9.3 PureView flagship in the pipeline but it has been pushed to the second half of 2020. It could be launched either in the middle of the second half of 2020 or towards the end as there is no certainty or confirmation from HMD Global. The reason for this delay, according to the report, is the coronavirus outbreak that has caused disruptions in the supply chain for many industries.

Nokia 9.3 is still being worked on and though the launch is imminent, it has been pushed to the second half of the year. This is due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic that has taken a huge hit on manufacturing and logistics across the globe.

The Nokia smartphone is expected to feature a 6.29-inch QHD+ P-OLED display with a 2K resolution. The display of the device will reportedly be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The Nokia 9.3 is also expected to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. The body encasing all this will be an aluminum and glass construction. Powered by the flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC, the Nokia 9.2/9.3 will also feature 6GB/8GB RAM along with either 128GB or 256GB storage. Expandable storage is still not confirmed.

The optics comprise a multi-lens camera module on the back with Zeiss optics. On the front, the phone is tipped off to feature a 32-megapixel camera. The Nokia 9.2/9.3 will also come with a 4,500mAh battery that will support Qi wireless charging. The device will most likely have a USB Type-C port for wired fast charging.
