Nokia 9 PureView had a Grey version that never came to be

Ivan, 25 June 2019

The Nokia 9 PureView launched back in February in a single Midnight Blue color option but it appears Nokia had plans for a Grey model as well.

The Grey Nokia 9 PureView appeared in a video by Estonian YouTube channel Motors24ee where two reviewers handle and discuss it.

It's unclear whether HMD plans to release the Grey variant of the Nokia 9 PureView, but chances are it's just a prototype that never materialized.

In related news Nokia will release a firmware update soon to combat the poor in-display fingerprint scanner reliability on the Nokia 9 PureView.

The scanner was inconsistent and unresponsive in the beginning and a software update made it faster but also less secure (it would allow unregistered fingers to unlock the device).

Responding to a user on Twitter, HMD Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas revealed that the issues with the in-display scanner affect a narrow sample size of units and that a patch is coming shortly.

@Levkion, It's not like that. There have been 3 of those in gray. Many have been done. In fact, I have 3 prototypes in gray.
