With a pure Android installation, the smartphones do not come with any major or unnecessary user interface (UI) changes or hidden processes that would eat up battery life or slow them down, the company claimed.
MWC 2019 is in full swing at the moment and Nokia has finally taken the wraps off its much-rumored and highly anticipated Nokia 9 PureView with five rear cameras, which is easily the standout flagship of this year. Two of these cutouts are color cameras with Zeiss Optics, another three are monochrome sensors, and the final two are a LED flash and proximity sensor.
When taking an image, the Nokia 9 takes shots from all five of these cameras and combines them into one high-resolution photo.
I tried out the Nokia 9 PureView and the photos looked quite sharp and detailed. There is also a feature of capturing bokeh pictures that renders out-of-focus lights to create a visually appealing picture. It's all wrapped up in a Midnight Blue Gorilla Glass 5 shell with Qi wireless charging. The device weighs in at 6.07 oz (172 g) and is 8mm thin. There's no word on whether the phone will be available through any United States carriers, but it's doubtful since HMD stressed the phone will ship with pure Android. Devices will benefit from software updates for two years and monthly security updates for three years.
The camera UI of the Nokia 9 PureView is simple and clean. We can assume it will include a more-than-usual number of cameras. HMD worked closely with Qualcomm to extract the most power out of its Snapdragon 845 processor and distribute the workload efficiently across the platform. Some are even put off by the device's design.
Certainly it's an intriguing device, and one - like the original PureView phones - at the cusp of something new in computational photography.
The Nokia 7.1 is a mid-range smartphone from HMD Global - the home of Nokia phones. However, the current 4G LTE version costs €899 ($1,022) across most of Europe so a 5G version will likely cost in the region of €1,000 ($1,137). Its specs are not as impressive as the PureView, but it only rings in at $99 Dollars.
The Nokia 9 PureView is the first Nokia-branded smartphone to bring an in-display fingerprint scanner, paired with Face Unlock, to round up the biometrics. There's no 3.5mm headphone jack, though.
The Nokia 9 PureView will be available from March at an average price of $699, and both the Nokia 3.2 and 4.2 will be available in April, from $139 and $169 respectively, he said.
Nokia 9 PureView is all about its five cameras with the five lenses spaced out in a circle at the back of the device along with a time-of-flight depth sensor as well as flash unit. It is unclear when the device will be available for sale in the United States, but it will cost $699 Dollars.
