Leaks for HMD Global’s Nokia 9 PureView smartphone are coming in hot and heavy. Just today, some of the phone’s key specifications were listed on Google’s Android enterprise site and now, the phone has been reportedly added to the Google Play list of supported devices as Nokia 9, along with the Nokia 1 Plus. Separately, a new US FCC listing confirms that the phone will be called ‘Nokia 9 PureView,’ along with some other key specifications like models numbers.
As reported by NokiaPowerUser,the Nokia 9 PureView and the Nokia 1 Plus have made their way to the Google Play store supported devices list, further confirming the existence of both phones. We’ve not heard too much about the Nokia 1 Plus, other than a leaked render which showed up last month.
Separately, Nashville Chatter has managed to get its hands on some of the images filed with the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) which reveals a bunch of details about the upcoming phone. One of the images clearly shows the name of the phone as ‘NOKIA 9 PUREVIEW’ and a corresponding model number TA-1087 DS, where the DS reportedly stands for Dual-SIM. The single SIM version will have the model number TA-1087.
Another image reveals a model number of TA-1094, which is said to be the version heading to China. There’s also mention of where the Android One logo will go on the back, confirming that it will be part of Google’s Android One programme. There’s also a mention of a blue colour variant, which makes sense considering the leaked images we had a couple of days ago was of a blue Nokia 9 PureView.
One of the images from the FCC listing also suggests that the phone will support wireless charging. The exact battery capacity isn’t mentioned but the report states that will also have 18W fast charging, which corresponds to a previous leak.
Earlier this week, the Nokia 9 PureView popped up on Google’s Android enterprise catalogue, revealing some of the phone’s specifications such as a 6-inch display, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It also tipped the presence of NFC and possibly, an in-display fingerprint sensor. We’re about two weeks away from HMD Global’s keynote at MWC 2019 on February 24.
