Recently, HMD Nokia regained the PureView trademark from Microsoft, which means there will be a new Nokia phone with a camera as a selling point. But seems this is not the only camera technology that is going to appear in the new Nokia smartphone. According to some sources, HMD has also registered a new trademark of its own. Dual-Sight aka Bothie is a feature that HMD has popularized on its mid-range to high-end smartphones.
The Nokia 8 is the world’s first smartphone with Dual-Sight video capabilities, enabling simultaneous live broadcasts on social platforms such as Facebook and YouTube. Dual-Sight can simultaneously start the front and rear lenses for shooting. At the same time, the screen will simultaneously display the pictures and images taken by the front and rear lenses. With a single touch, users can simultaneously broadcast the world’s first Dual-Sight feature to create and share memories.
So it turns out now HMD own two trademarks in face of PureView and Dual-Sight. As both technologies have appeared on mid-range and flagship models, we are confused about which of them will have a priority for the annual flagships.
Well, this is not the first time when HMD tries to bring back Nokia’s formerly popular technologies, phones, etc. We’ve had reimagined versions of the classic 3310 and 8810 smartphones to tickle our sense of nostalgia. So there is every reason to think the Dual-Sight camera technology will become available for more customers. Probably, this strategy works because Nokia already appears in top lists.
As for the upcoming Nokia 9, it is rumored to come with a penta-lens camera. But if previously it was though HMD will use PureView for it, now there is every reason to think Dual-Sight can be there as well.
