While there have been quite a few leaks over the past month regarding a new Nokia smartphone with a penta-lens setup, it looks like the device could now be delayed, with a new timeline that places its arrival sometime in 2019.
The news comes via Twitter, where the account 'Nokia anew' has stated that the Nokia 9 is now "canceled". This is a relatively small account without a deep track record so the legitimacy of the tweet should be taken into consideration.
Beyond just sharing that the phone won't be arriving in 2018, the account does go on a huge rant about how the handset won't see the light of day this year due to decisions made by Nokia's Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas and even proceeds to call him out. Needless to say, there will probably many that will be disappointed because of the news, but it doesn't mean that it won't arrive sometime in the near future.
If Nokia needs extra time to make things right, so be it. While CES and Mobile World Congress are two major events toward the beginning of each year, the firm has typically relied on the latter event to make a splash - here's hoping to big things come February in Barcelona.
