Nokia 10 PureView reportedly in the works, may feature Snapdragon 875 and Sapphire glass

News Rumors Smartphones

While HMD Global is rumored to be preparing for the launch of the Nokia 9.3 PureView, the latest reports indicate that the company has another flagship smartphone in the pipeline that is expected to be launched in 2021. The new smartphone is rumored to be the Nokia 10 PureView.

There isn’t much information that is available regarding the Nokia 10 PureView, except for the fact that the device is expected to be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 875 processor, an SoC that Qualcomm has yet to officially unveil it. The latest rumors of the new Snapdragon 875 are based on the 5nm fabrication and it will have a CPU configuration that is similar to the current Snapdragon 865 SoC. The Cortex-X1 core is reportedly clocked at 2.84GHz speeds, along with three other Cortex A78 cores running at 2.42GHz and the remaining four power-efficient Cortex A55 cores that are clocked at 1.8GHz speeds. The upcoming chipset is also said to feature the Adreno 660 GPU.

While the size of the display is yet to be determined, the Nokia 10 PureView is rumored to feature a stainless steel frame and Sapphire glass panel. The Nokia 10 PureView is also rumored to come with a multi-lens camera configuration and possibly with ZEISS glass. However, there isn’t any word on the number of camera sensors HMD Global would use on the Nokia 10 PureView. On the contrary, the Nokia 9 PureView packs a total of five different camera sensors, so we can expect a better camera configuration on the Nokia 10 PureView. There aren’t any render or image leaks of the new device for now but we expect new information to surface in the coming months. That said, the Snapdragon 875 SoC is expected to be announced by December and the Nokia 10 PureView by the second half of 2021.
