Ahead of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in February, there are rumours and leaks floating around, along with some official information on the smartphones you are likely to see unveiled. A short video of the Nokia 9 PureView, a variant of the flagship Nokia 9, expected from HMD Global, the current owners of the Finnish brand, has surfaced. It might be part of the video the company has produced to play out at the MWC. But it is revealing some significant details about the phone.
One major piece of information is that the phone will sport five cameras in the rear placed in a circular shape. The display on this phone too is being described as ‚ÄúPureDisplay‚ÄĚ, running from edge-to-edge. There have been similar leaks about the Nokia 9 phone earlier also. In many ways, the Nokia PureView appears to be quite similar to the Nokia 8 Sirocco. The major change, obviously, is the penta-camera setup.
The video goes on to describe how these five cameras can work in tandem to absorb as much as 10 times more light as compared to your regular smartphone camera setups into the lens chamber and offer excellent imaging, even when they are clicked in low-light environments. These sensors have been supplied by Zeiss, it is learnt. There is the option to re-focus on the objects after the photo has been clicked.
A 5.99-inch QHD (2K) PureDisplay is expected to be display on this Nokia 9 PureView phone with HDR10 support. The fingerprint sensor is of the in-display type.
While the hardware specs are likely to be top-notch with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC processor and 6GB of RAM, the OS will be the Android One based on the Android Pie version 9. The internal storage will be 128GB, the video seems to convey.
For the record, the PureView technology was developed by Microsoft, but HMD Global has bought it from Microsoft and owns it now. Various phones based on the PureView technology for camera setups have been launched earlier. But the Nokia 9 PureView might be the first device from HMD Global after it acquired the brand.
