HMD Global is preparing to launch three new smartphones on December 5 in Dubai. The company’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, posted an invitation to “save the date” on Twitter with the caption, “#ExpectMore.” Although it did not reveal which smartphones will be launched on this date, the invitation image has schematics of three devices: two with a notch and one without a notch. This suggests that the Nokia 9, which is rumored to feature a notchless display, could be featured at the event alongside Nokia 8.1 and Nokia 2.1 Plus.
Nokia 9 with five rear cameras: specifications and expected features
Nokia 9, the company’s next flagship, is speculated with a five-camera setup, the first on any smartphone. It could also be the first PureView branded phone.

The setup is expected to consist of a telephoto, wide-angle, and depth-sensing camera, in addition to other cameras.
Although there won’t be any notches, the display could have visible bezels on all sides and a noticeable chin. In terms of specs, the Nokia 9 PureView will likely have a 5.8-inch QHD display with an 18: 9 screen aspect ratio. The phone will run Android Pie out of the box. It can be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor along with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
