So far, the last weeks of 2018 have been filled with peeks into the next Nokia smartphone, but this leaked promotional video is offering all we’ve been eager to find out about this phone. We saw static images from early leaks, then a 360-degree video of the device in November and last week a photo with a smartphone called the “Nokia 9 PureView”.
But this promotional video is all we needed to see on 1 January. You can check it out on YouTube by following the link at the bottom of this article. Now let’s talk about specs and features.
Nokia 9 PureView Specs and Features
The video shows that the new Nokia will come with a Penta-lens camera array (ZEISS optics). It will capture five shots at the same time and get ten times more light “compared to a regular smartphone camera color sensor.” There’s an interesting feature which lets you refocus shots from Google Photos after taking the photos.
The smartphone comes with a 5.99″ 2K HDR10 display, Edge-to-edge, but with slightly thicker bezels on top and bottom. The aspect ratio is 18:9, and although the smartphone doesn’t have thin bezels, it comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
It will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, 6GB RAM / 128GB storage, and probably a microSD slot (the latter not mentioned in the video).
The OS will be Android One (9.0 Pie) at launch, which is great considering it gets updates sooner than other OS versions.
The glass back means the smartphone will come with Qi wireless charging.
Nokia 9 PureView Reveal and Launch
According to Nokia Anew, we should expect to see the Nokia 9 PureView revealed by the end of this month and it might go official next month before MWC which takes place on 25 February. It’s a good plan, considering that if the Nokia 9 PureView gets released next month, it goes on sale before the first flagship Android smartphones of this year.
We’ll surely have more info as soon as CES 2019 begins next week.
