The race for bezel-less smartphones gave birth to trends like waterdrop notches, pop-up cameras, and punch-holes. So far, the only limitation for companies to deliver a truly bezel-less smartphone is the front-facing camera. While companies like Asus adopted a single camera that snaps to the front when needed, not every one of them wants to give up the selfie snapper. After the under-display fingerprints, OEMs are now working to deliver a proper under-display camera. Several companies such as Oppo, Xiaomi, Huawei, and Samsung already working on it. But which company will be the first to deliver a smartphone with this characteristic? According to a report, it will be HMD Global with its Nokia 9.3 PureView.

The next Nokia flagship could be the smartphone with the most innovative selfie camera of 2020
Earlier this year, we saw a report claiming that the Nokia 9.3 PureView could be one of the first phones to feature this technology. More recently, another report revealed that HMD Global will make its flagship official during Q3 2020. Today, a fresh report from Nokia Power User once again states that the Nokia 9.3 PureView will come with an under-display front-facing snapper. It cites information from a source that is very close to the Finnish firm. According to them, the new smartphone will come with PureDisplay V3 technology. Besides it, the new handset panel will deliver a 120Hz refresh rate.
According to the source, HMD Global has been testing the under-display selfie camera along with a pop-up mechanism. The company is reportedly found the under-display camera tech to be stable enough to come in a new flagship. The Nokia 9.3 PureView is said to come with a Penta-Camera setup featuring 108MP primary camera, 64MP sensor, and another three unspecified sensors. When it comes to the selfie camera, it is said to deliver a 48MP camera. If Nokia delivers this under-display technology, we are very curious to see how the quality will be.
Apart from the camera specs, the new handset will debut with Snapdragon 865 and Android 10.
