Despite the fact that the legendary Nokia 9 PureView was delayed until 2019 due to the fact that the camera software was not ready, seems that the smartphone design is finished. A few days ago a case render of the smartphone appeared confirming some details of the smartphone look, now a new case popped out in Amazon revealing the five holes that are made for the PureView Penta-camera sensor.
Unfortunately, the case didn’t bring renders of the smartphone, not even concept designs. So, we have no idea of how the front display will look, if it will bring a large notch or will jump in the waterdrop bandwagon. Thankfully, the cut-outs on the rear confirm the odd-looking camera layout that will be the hardware behind the reborn of Nokia’s PureView technology. The setup should consist of five cameras – each one with a different function – accompanied by a large LED flash and a laser Autofocus System. Of course, this should be another setup to carry the ZEISS Optics label.
Besides the impressive camera setup, the Nokia 9 PureView should also come on steroids when it comes to specifications. The handset is expected to come with a Snapdragon 845 along with 128GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM. Furthermore, it should carry Android Pie straight out the box, presumably with the Android One label on the software. This case also indicates that the smartphone will not jump in the USB C earphones bandwagon, by including a 3.5mm headphone jack.
While no details about pricing or availability have been revealed, there are rumors pointing to a release in CES 2019 in January, and before the MWC 2019 that happens in February. The Nokia 9 PureView should be HMD biggest bet on this segment since the Nokia’s revival.
