The Nokia 9 PureView has been HMD Global's most anticipated smartphone since it made its first appearance on the rumor mill. It is rumored to feature a total of five rear cameras which is the reason behind all the hype and talks. While an official announcement is expected at this month's MWC event in Barcelona, a new leak has emerged claiming to be showing official renders of the device.
These alleged official Nokia 9 PureView renders have been shared by 91Mobiles. These renders show the upcoming smartphone from the front and back panel in very good quality. It means one can easily make out what to expect from the phone in terms of design and appearance. On the front panel, there are minimum bezels on the sides but the top/bottom bezels are quite thick. There is no notch and one can also see the selfie camera on the top bezel. There is an icon on the display confirming that there will be an in-display fingerprint scanner.
On the back panel, there is a five-camera setup with an LED flash and an autofocus module. These are Zeiss optics for obvious reasons and the phone has Zeiss branding to show that off as well. It would be interesting to see exactly how these cameras and the autofocus module would work together. The output will also matter a lot to see how does this new approach fares against existing camera phones.
The phone further has Nokia and Android One brandings which make sense as well. All of Nokia phones are Android One phones which means they run stock Android and offer faster and regular software updates. The phone has Nokia branding even on the top right side of the front panel.
If we go by previous rumors, the Nokia 9 PureView should support a 5.99-inch Quad HD display. Under the hood, it will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with up to 8GB of RAM. There could be 128GB of internal storage and a 4150mAh battery.
