The first truly high-end Nokia phone in five years is almost certainly right around the corner, possibly aiming to hit the US market
in addition to select European and Asian regions after finally going official at MWC 2019
. Even though the world's largest exhibition for the mobile industry is technically scheduled to start on Monday, February 25, a number of companies will jump the gun on Sunday with exciting product launch events
To get us even more excited about the Nokia 9 PureView
announcement, exclusive brand licensee HMD Global just unveiled the event's start time
, also confirming the whole world will be able to follow the action from Barcelona online. You can now bookmark these live-streaming links from YouTube
or set a reminder for 4 PM (local time) this Sunday. That's 10 AM on the US East Coast and 7 AM in California, which might mean something... or nothing at all in terms of the handset's US availability.
Nokia is definitely not being subtle about the fact several devices are coming to this year's Mobile World Congress, but unfortunately, the #GetSmart tagline and 8-second teaser video posted on Twitter today are as cryptic as they could be.
Apart from the oft-leaked Nokia 9 PureView
with that insane five-camera setup on its back, we're also expecting a lower-end 8.1 Plus
and/or Nokia 6.2
to see daylight soon. If history is any indication, we may be in for another revival of an iconic feature phone
too, although that's just an educated guess right now.
