HMD Global is expected to unveil a range of smartphones at a press event on February 23, 2020 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The Finland-based smartphone maker is expected to launch its flagship device Nokia Nokia 8.2 5G, alongside Nokia 5.2, Nokia 4.3 and Nokia 1.3. The highly-anticipated Nokia flagship dubbed PureView 9.2 might be unveiled at a later date.
As reported earlier, the Nokia PureView 9.2 is expected to come with an under-display selfie camera paired with a spectacular rear camera setup. The under-display camera would help the device display to refrain from sacrificing any dedicated space for the punch hole. New rumors hint that Nokia might consider a pop-up style selfie camera as well.
