We know that HMD Global has acquired the rights to manufacture as well as sell Nokia-branded smartphones globally. Also, it must be said that HMD Global has done wonders for Nokia as a brand. Nokia was down and out of the smartphone industry when the Windows Phone platform failed. Therefore, Nokia had nowhere to go as it had already announced not to use Android OS on its smartphones.
However, things changed when HMD Global came into action as they started producing Nokia smartphones with the superior build quality as before and Android OS inside it. Recently, Nokia owned by HMD Global also announced that they will have Android One program on all their future phones. This meant that users would get Stock Android as well as guaranteed updates from Google.
Now, the company has come up with one of its most ambitious flagship phones of 2019. This smartphone is the Nokia 9 Pureview which is now launched in India. However, it must be said that the launch of Nokia 9 Pureview has come quite late from the company. For starters, the Nokia 9 Pureview has a Penta-camera set up at the back. This camera setup consists of two 12-megapixel RGB sensors and three 12-megapixel monochrome sensors.
However, it would have been better if Nokia used a wide-angle sensor in one of those cameras. Also, Nokia 9 Pureview comes with last year’s Snapdragon 845 processor. This is because the smartphone was in production since late last year. Nokia is using a 5.99-inch POLED display with a resolution of 1440×2960 pixels. Apart from that, the smartphone has 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage along with 3320 mAh non-removable battery.
In India, the Nokia 9 PureView is priced at Rs. 49,999 along with IP67-certification, 20MP selfie camera and USB Type-C port. However, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack on this smartphone from Nokia.
