It seems that Nokia did not learn the lesson with the first smartphone equipped with a 'penta-camera'. After launching Nokia 9, the manufacturer has started to develop its successor, but it looks like they will repeat exactly the same mistakes.
One of the major problems with the original model was that it hit the market too late and was extremely expensive for the specifications it offered. It seems that Nokia 9.1 Pureview will follow in its footsteps, seeing its presentation delayed by early 2020.
Nokia 9.1 Pureview could be a great smartphone if it was released in 2019
Originally, everything indicated that the brand would be able to launch Nokia 9.1 Pureview later this year. However, something unexpected happened again and they had to delay their presentation. Still no confirmed release date, new information confirms that the new high-end will arrive only in early 2020.
After the fiasco of the first smartphone with 'camera penta', the manufacturer is preparing to make the same mistake. It seems that the Nokia 9.1 Pureview will be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, today's most powerful processor.
However, by launching only in early 2020, it will be out of date as Qualcomm will introduce the new Snapdragon 865 during December. Still, the possibility remains for HMD to correct this error, bringing Nokia 9.1 with the new processor, Snapdragon 865.
Penta cameras no longer "new" in 2020
The Nokia 9 received a great hype for coming equipped with five cameras on its rear panel, which was able to safeguard the problems presented by its specifications.
However, by 2020 this will not happen again, as it is expected that several manufacturers will launch smartphone with this type of configuration. I recall that the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 has already been released with a "penta camera" and its main sensor has an impressive 108 megapixels.
If HMD Global really wants to see new high-end users achieve great success, they need to focus on delivering high-end specifications by 2020 standards.
When it comes to its photographic capabilities, Carl Zeiss' five-sensor combination can be expected to achieve well-above-average performance.
