Nokia 9 to not be launched on December 5th; global launch of Nokia 8.1 expected at the event

“HMD Global is hosting an event in Dubai on December 5th and has sent out a media invite for the same”

Recently, HMD Global sent out media invites for an event being hosted in Dubai on December 5th. It was being speculated that the event might witness the launch of Nokia 2.1 Plus and Nokia 8.1 at the event, alongside the Nokia 9. However, a latest report claims that the flagship device – Nokia 9 will not be launched at the said event.

The new revelation comes from Twitter user, @nokiamobileru, who simply posted that the Nokia 9 will not be presented on December 5th. This comes as a shock for those awaiting the flagship as the Nokia 9 happens to be one of the most anticipated flagships of the recent times. With the December 5th launch date ruled out, we can expect the handset to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress to be held in February next year. Further, the brand recently teased the launch of Nokia 8.1 in India and we can expect the same to be unveiled at the upcoming event as well.
