When the Nokia 9 PureView was launched, HMD offers the phone as a limited edition. Hence, the single blue color variant. However, in a video released by Motors24.ee YouTube channel, the phone appears to have been painted gray.
In a 17-minute video, the reviewer talks about the smartphone, as well as comparing it with Huawei’s flagship smartphone. There is also a walk-through of the main camera features of the device. According to Nokiamob, the language appears to be Estonian. Although we can’t properly confirm that.
While we would want to see this color variant soon, there is also a huge possibility that the phone is a prototype device. Perhaps HMD has more color choices during the pre-production but later settled with blue. But how the reviewers get their hands on this beautiful gray Nokia 9 variant is unclear.
The Nokia 9 PureView was launched last MWC 2019 in Barcelona. It features a 5.99-inch 2K P-OLED panel inforced with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It can also display and support HDR10 contents, thanks to Nokia’s PureDisplay technology.
Coming to the inside of the device, it still runs on 2018 Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of non-expandable storage. What’s interesting about this setup is Light’s custom ASIC which placed on top of the Snapdragon 845. This allows the Nokia 9 PureView to get more processing power for its image fusion technology. After all, it’s powering a five high-resolution cameras simultaneously.
More on the imaging, the Nokia 9 PureView features a 20-megapixel selfie shooter. AS confirmed, it can shoot 4K HDR video, which is uncommon for smartphones. At the back is where the goodies are. It has a total of seven holes on it. One is for the LED flash, one for TOF 3D camera, and five holes for the cameras.
It’s all 12-megapixel sensors with f/1.8 ZEISS optics, but varies depends on its purpose. Three of which are monochrome sensors, two for the color ones. Clicking the shutter will make the Nokia 9 PureView take 5 photos simultaneously and infused it together. This helps with depth and dynamic range (13-stops to be exact).
The phone also packs an in-display fingerprint sensor, Quick Charge 3.0, as well as 10W fast wireless charger via Qi standard. And the bonus, it runs on Android One software.
