HMD Global is all set to launch its Nokia 9 PureView smartphone in India today. The smartphone is the first ever to come with a penta-lens camera setup on its rear panel. It was initially launched at the MWC 2019 and now, it is finally making its way to India. Other than this, the company has also been teasing the launch of another smartphone on its Nokia Mobile Global Twitter handle too.
The other upcoming smartphone is expected to come with a waterdrop-style notch and a face unlock feature, according to the teasers. The device is also said to come with a dedicated Google Assistant button, much like the one we saw on Nokia 4.2. Earlier, the company was said to launch the Nokia 6.2 or the India variant of Nokia X71, however, that comes with a hole-punch display and not a notch.
The launch event of Nokia 9 PureView and the other smartphone will begin at 11.30 am IST in New Delhi.
