“The much-awaited Nokia 9 PureView flagship phone is expected to launch today at MWC 2019 in Barcelona”
HMD Global, the brand that makes and sells Nokia phones, is all set to launch its flagship offering the Nokia 9 PureView smartphone today. The brand has an event scheduled at the biggest tech extravaganza Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019, in Barcelona where it’ll take the wraps off the device and a bunch of other products. However, prior to that, the Nokia 9 PureView has popped on the e-commerce site JD.com, spilling the beans over its specifications and other details.
The Nokia 9 PureView JD.com listing confirms the presence of a five-camera setup on the rear, with ZEISS branding. It also confirms the Nokia 9 PureView will boast of an in-display fingerprint sensor, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC chipset paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage. The phone’s images further corroborate the fact that it’ll have a standard 18:9 aspect ratio display with bezels all around. Lastly, the Nokia 9 PureView will support Qi wireless charging and have an 8mm-thick body that’s made of metal. That’s all the JD.com listing has revealed.
However, this leaves a lot of blanks, including the key Nokia 9 PureView specifications. Going by the previous leaks and rumours, the smartphone will sport a 5.99-inch Quad-HD+ AMOLED HDR10 display. Other vital features include a 12-megapixel selfie shooter, IP68 certified, 18W fast charging, and connectivity options such as GPS, NFC, Bluetooth, and USB Type C port that also doubles as a headphone jack.
According to report, the penta-camera setup on the back is said to include cameras with the following resolution: 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel + 16-megapixel + 16-megapixel + 8-megapixel. Also, HMD Global has reportedly partnered with imaging startup Light to ensure the handset can shoot images with a total output of 64-megapixel. As for the price, the Nokia 9 PureView price is rumoured to start at €499 (about Rs 48,300).
