The phone case of the highly anticipated Nokia 9 was recently spotted listed on Amazon UK website, which suggests the Nokia 9 or Nokia 9 PureView release is inching closer.
HMD Global is reportedly hosting an event in Dubai on December 5. While nothing much about the launch event is known at the moment, it is expected that the smartphone maker will unveil three new Nokia smartphones at the event. Two of the three phones could be the Nokia 8.1 and the Nokia 9 or Nokia 9 PureView.
But, Nokia’s Russia community on Twitter has declined Nokia 9 launch on December 5. It is reported that the decision to delay the Nokia 9 launch was taken by HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas. The rumor mill has it that Nokia 9 will likely get unveiled in January 2019, prior to next year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 event which is set to be held in February.
Notably, a lot of rumors surrounding the Nokia 9 specs and features have already flooded the internet and most of them claim that the phone will come with a Penta camera setup on the rear panel. Interestingly, the alleged new case features five holes for the rumored PureView penta-camera sensors.
However, one hole beneath the camera cutout, likely for the fingerprint sensor, is missing in the case. This makes us believe the smartphone might sport an in-display fingerprint sensor, so that makes sense. The Nokia 9 case also offers a glimpse of the USB type-C port at the middle and a cutout on both the sides, one for the speaker and the other one for the 3.5mm headphone jack.
As per the Amazon listing, the case will be in stock on December 1, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Nokia 9 will also be available by then. Furthermore, the case doesn’t appear on the maker’s official site, which suggests it was posted online accidentally.
