There have been various rumors suggesting that HMD Global has a few more Nokia smartphones to announce this year. It was officially confirmed recently when it announced a launch event for December 5th in Dubai. And now, there is a new leak related to Nokia 8.1 and Nokia 9 PureView official cases listing spotted online.
The leak has shared by NokiaPowerUser citing sources who not only shared listing screenshots but also the listing location. The first official case listing is meant for the Nokia Phoenix which is also listed to be compatible with Nokia 8.1. If you might remember, Phoenix was the codename for the Nokia X7 unveiled in China earlier this year. This further corroborates all the claims that Nokia 8.1 is nothing but a global X7 variant.
There are basically two case variants, transparent clear case and entertainment flip case, with model number CC-181 and CP-281 respectively. They are listed for a price of €6.64 and €10.19 respectively.
Next up, the listing is for the Nokia 9 PureView which is listed as the PureView Premium Clear Case with model number CC-190. It has been priced at €11.15. It should be noted that none of the case listings have a product image which means we still don't know how they would look like.
As for other details, the Nokia 9 PureView is the same smartphone which is supposed to feature a Penta-lens system. It is the most highlighting feature of the upcoming device which is the reason it is being talked about so much. On another hand, the Nokia 8.1 is supposed to be the same as the Nokia X7, except for the name change.
