HMD Global has confirmed its presence at Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona next month, with a launch event due on the Sunday before the show doors open.

It will host a briefing on 24 February, starting at 4pm CET (3pm GMT). It is likely to be livestreamed, if a cryptic tweet by HMD Global's chief product officer is anything to go by: "We really... would like you to tune into our Barcelona MWC showdown," posted Juho Sarvikas.

The event will be hosted offsite in Barcelona and, while there is no official indication as to what HMD Global might announce, it is strongly expected that the company will finally unveil the much-talked about Nokia 9 PureView.
