Leak shows us the Nokia 9 flagship we’ve been waiting for

Leak shows us the Nokia 9 flagship we’ve been waiting for Ever since the new Nokia came out with its first Nokia phones two years ago, we heard rumblings that flagship devices that would rival the iPhone, Galaxy S, and Pixel phones would arrive in due time, and HMD Global delivered. The company, however, never launched that elusive Nokia 9 phone that appeared in rumors all the way back in 2017. That might change soon, a new leak tells us. According to well-known leaker Evan Blass, the following image shows a the Nokia 9 PureView phone. And we’re looking at the kind of leak — a press render — that precedes a commercial launch.

" There is no legitimacy to this," a Recording Academy spokesperson tells Billboard. " Grammy Awards results are not shared, even with Recording The official winners will be announced at the 61st annual Grammy Awards, which will air live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb.

Recording Academy members and record companies enter recordings and music videos released during the eligibility year which they consider worthy of recognition in the GRAMMY Awards process. GRAMMY Award winners are revealed during the GRAMMY Awards telecast.

Don't worry, the GRAMMYs didn't just get spoiled!

Twitter was abuzz on Monday night with rumors that the results of the 2019 GRAMMY Awards had leaked after an alleged hacker posted a list of winners they claimed came from the Recording Academy's official website. However, the Academy quickly shot down any rumors of a leak.

"There is no legitimacy to this," a spokesperson for the Recording Academy told ET. "GRAMMY Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the GRAMMY Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by the accounting firm Deloitte in sealed envelopes."

Presented by the Recording Academy since 1958, the GRAMMYs are a celebration of excellence, the music community's highest honor, and its only peer-based award. The Latin GRAMMYs are the preeminent peer-based award for excellence in Latin music, honoring winners in 48 categories.

The rich history of Music's Biggest Night is at your fingertips. From Henry Mancini, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson to Kanye West, Taylor Swift and Adele, explore the winners and biggest moments from each GRAMMY Awards telecast.

Big potential winners from the rumored list included Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin taking home Record of the Year for "I Like It," Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper nabbing Song of the Year for their A Star Is Born ballad "Shallow" and Chloe x Halle winning the coveted Best New Artist honor.

Other big-name winners on the allegedly leaked list were Taylor Swift winning Best Pop Album for reputation, Drake nabbing Best Rap Song for "God's Plan," Travis Scott taking Best Rap Album honors for Astroworld and Beyonce and Jay-Z taking home their only golden gramophone of the night for Best R&B Album with The Carters.

This isn't the first time that fans thought a major awards show spoiled their winners' list prior to the big night. In 2015, the official website of the Golden Globe Awards replaced two of the 2014 winners, listing civil rights biopic Selma as Best Picture - Drama and Sondheim adaptation Into the Woods as Best Picture - Comedy or Musical. Fans on social media were abuzz at the possible spoilers, which the Golden Globes later attributed to a technical error.

Ultimately, the Golden Globes glitch proved to be a true error, as neither Selma nor Into the Woods won top honors that year. (Those trophies went to Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel, respectively.) And as the Academy has refuted the legitimacy of these GRAMMY results, fans will have to wait a few more weeks to see how close this list came to the actual winners!

The 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards airs Sunday, Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
