Nokia 9 PureView is getting a “day one” update in the U.S.

Nokia 9 PureView is getting a “day one” update in the U.S.
Nokia 9 PureView is clearly one of the cheapest flagships announced in the first half of the year, and definitely the cheapest that will be available for purchase in the United States. Although HMD Global announced a retail price of $700, the smartphone is now available for pre-order at various retailers for as low as $550.

Nokia 9 PureView is getting a “day one” update in the U.S.
While you can pre-order the Nokia 9 PureView in the U.S. right now, the phone hasn't yet hit the shelves. However, we do know that the flagship will arrive in the States on March 11, so you still have time to benefit from those major discounts offered by various retailers across the country.

And to make things even more appealing, HMD Global announced earlier today that the Nokia 9 PureView is getting a small but important update before it even reaches stores. If you buy the phone, you'll want to check for a new update when you receive it next week.

The update weighs in at about 300MB and brings the March security patch, as well as stability and performance improvements, which includes some camera enhancements too. As some of you probably know by now, the Nokia 9 PureView comes with a five-camera setup on the back, so any improvement should greatly increase picture quality.

The information has been confirmed by HMD Global's Chief Product Officer, but some users who got the phone earlier have already tweeted details about the update.

Good to know that Nokia is committed to delivering timely updates and features that rival Google in speed, but I'm sure Venom will find some way to spin this into a bad thing.

He'll probably just say he's not copping that jawn and something else.

Or maybe I'll just avoid saying anything without my fanclub up above trying to stir the pot.

Exactly, lmao. He finds a way to spin anything good about something he doesn’t favor into something bad, especially when there is nothing negative to say about it.

Just because I said the Pureview wasn't for me doesn't mean that I said it was a bad device. It's just not what I was expecting. Let it go.

Lmao you just said in your comment #11 that's responding to someone else "why you would spend it into a bad thing." You just exposed yourself. Just because there are people here that know what you do and say it, doesn't mean you should get so defensive, especially since it's concerning facts about you. Own it and get over it.

You're just giddy because someone said something about me giving you food to work with but keep it up. I enjoy knocking you back down to earth with the "cold, hard facts." I wasn't getting defensive like you do with your recent network compatibility rants.

Nah, more like I just enjoy putting you in your place and pointing out your throwing shade on HMD like others are doing here. Your “cold, hard facts” are more hot garbage lies and conjecture, and you’re constantly getting defensive because people point out what you do and because I mention “GSM networks”.

And why would I spend it into a bad thing?

Awesome! The Nokia 9 Pureview has shaped up to be a fantastic smartphone, and HMD’s commitment to fast and consistent updates have only made this smartphone a much better investment. Can’t wait to get my hands on one.

Please do what everyone wants to know and reviewers never do. Can you make T-mobile VoLTE phone calls and actually see the LTE status icon displaying during the phone call. Merely having a phone setting to enable VoLTE is not evidence. Does it display a LTE status icon during phone calls. Thank you.

Owners, please let us know if you are able to make VoLTE phone calls with T-Mobile. Merely having a VoLTE setting is not sufficient because the carrier has to permit the VoLTE call to go through. --> Are you actually seeing "LTE" in the status bar *during* your phone calls? Thanks!
