“The Nokia 9 PureView update also brings UI improvements, July 2019 security patch, and faster image processing”

The Nokia 9 PureView smartphone is receiving a new software update that brings camera enhancements and July security patch. The 280MB update for Nokia 9 PureView has build number V4.27C and includes a new live bokeh mode that’ll enable users to adjust the focus before and after taking a photo. It also fixes the smartphone’s slow image processing issues, meaning the images can now be taken faster than before. While it may be the first HMD Global phone to come with an in-display fingerprint, it was reportedly slow in detecting fingers. The latest update to the Nokia 9 PureView, however, brings improvements to the sensor that should make it faster.

HMD Global has been relatively consistent in rolling out software updates, monthly security patches, and fixing bugs. Thanks to the Android One program, the Nokia phones are entitled to a minimum of two years of OS updates. The Nokia 9 PureView update is currently only rolling out in Finland and Russia, but a wider rollout can be expected in the coming few weeks.
