The Nokia 7.3 missed its alleged September release date, but that rumor was right about one thing – the Nokia 9.3 PureView isn’t ready yet. New information has surfaced through unofficial channels, saying that HMD will finish testing and will begin mass production of the next batch of Nokia phones in September or October.
This will lead up to a major launch in November – the Nokia 9.3 and 7.3 will be there, whether the Nokia 6.3 will join them is uncertain.
The Nokia 9.3 PureView should be a proper flagship with a Snapdragon 865 chipset, 120Hz OLED display, 108MP main and 64MP secondary sensors, with ZEISS optics all around. The phone should be capable of 8K video capture and will supposedly have bespoke “ZEISS effects”.
The Nokia 7.3 will be a 5G-connected mid-ranger powered by the Snapdragon 690 chipset. It will have a high refresh rate screen (90Hz or 120Hz) and a quad camera with ZEISS optics (48MP main, 12MP ultrawide and two 2MP modules).
Renders published by @OnLeaks show a punch hole selfie camera (24MP), rear-mounted fingerprint reader, USB-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone is expected to have a 4,000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging.
The Nokia 6.3, if it’s ready in time, will be a 4G alternative to the 7.3. It will probably use a Snapdragon 670 or 675 chipset with a bit less RAM, odds are against a high refresh rate screen. The phone should keep the quad-camera with ZEISS lenses, however.
Retailers are reportedly expecting HMD to launch the new Nokia models in November or December, barring any more roadblocks.
