Leaked Nokia 9 PureView promo video details cameras and internals

Just hours after the very first marketing image of the Nokia 9 PureView appeared, the folks over at MySmartPrice have obtained an official promo video for the smartphone ahead of its unveiling in January 2019.

As expected, the video focuses heavily on the smartphone’s “revolutionary” five-camera setup that can be found on the rear. The exact function of each camera remains unclear at the moment, but the brand’s software implementations will permit the capture of 5 simultaneous shots. Alongside this, users will have access to detailed depth-of-field controls through the Google Photos app, where they can also re-focus an image after it has been taken. Also present among the feature set is the ability to capture 10x more light than “a regular smartphone camera.”

Moving away from photography, the presence of a 5.99-inch 18:9 display which is coupled with a new in-display fingerprint scanner is confirmed. As previously suggested by the logo found on the smartphone’s rear, the Nokia 9 PureView will also become the latest device to join the Android One program when it launches next year. This means that, besides stock Android 9 Pie straight out of the box, owners should expect updates to Android Q and Android R once they arrive. Completing the smartphone’s package will be wireless charging support, the Snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage.

The Nokia 9 PureView still doesn’t have an official release date. But according to recent information, the device will go official towards the very end of January before sales in February. This means the flagship will arrive roughly one month before most other 2019 flagships.

Reminds me of the LG G6 somehow, especially the front.

With android one software, Nokia phones are somewhat in the track as pixel subs, only the difference is the price. price it well, and it might be a great buy!

It will launch with pie 9 so it will get 10 and 11 as well same as pixel 3.

I’m here for it! The more I see of the Nokia 9, the more I’m interested. This phone looks gorgeous, even with what some call the “ugly” five camera setup. Nail the imagery with that awesome five camera setup, price it right, and it having the SD845 (still a very capable SoC that powers many of the flagships of today) won’t matter to those that actually are going to buy one, as opposed to those that will complain for the sake of complaining knowing that they have no intention of buying one to begin with. Get those things right, and you’ll have an excellent alternative to the Pixel line.

Big ass sensor like 808 PureView, expandable storage, 4000 mAh battery and 3.5 mm jack. *There, fixed it for you* P.S. Pixels are over-rated.

You fixed nothing, as what you want in a smartphone has no bearing on what I want. And this is already rumored to have a 4000mAh battery or more (I believe 4100). But thanks for playing. You can see your own way out. P.S.- I’ve known Pixels were overrated since the first generation.

What I want in a smartphone is pretty much what everyone wants these day i.e. best of everything.

It's extremely presumptuous of you to even think that you speak for everyone. Not everyone wants or needs "the best of everything" in a smartphone.

You need a lot of fixing with that case.

You need to stop talking down about yourself. Gotta get your self respect and confidence up.

No notch! Cool..

No but it has a silly 5 camera setup. I rather have the notch.

"Silly" is subjective, and if it performs well, it will be praised.

Looks promising, interesting to see how the cameras will perform. Hope it lives up to the Nokia pureview legacy of quality cameras

I love everything about this phone already, only thing remaining is the price. If HMD can abstain from being greedy, they are going to take a lot market share from Samsung and Co. in 2019.

You post the same thing on GSMArena!

Can't wait ! What about IP6. ? Price and Pureview quality ? If they're good. I want some ! I'll keep my Note 9 and this Nokia

I'm not really interested. I know some will take whatever Nokia shoves out, but I am disappointed that the 7 Plus or the 8.1 aren't being released in the US. I don't think this phone will launch at a flagship price. Imo I think anything above $499 is too much.

Right...because making the effort to be part of the Android One program, do something potentially novel with their camera setup, and include an HDR10 display with in-display fingerprint scanner is just "shoving something out". Some people pay attention to Nokia because they've demonstrated strong capability in some areas, namely imaging.

Their cameras produce decent shots but certainly nothing to write home about. I understand that you are challenged by the notion of what I was saying, but I think you should get over it.

38. meanestgenius

Posts: 22272; Member since: May 28, 2014

Exactly, Penny. HMD has been putting out some great midrange Nokia branded smartphones, each one better than the last, especially in the imagery department. Those of us that actually use them and really know about them (down to the SoC used in each), can attest to this.

Of course you obviously have the usual detractors who obviously aren't exactly an unbiased party, but they are going to take anything that Nokia puts out at face value.

50. meanestgenius

Posts: 22272; Member since: May 28, 2014

And then there is you that's the real detractor, always trolling HMD articles because you're biased against them, and will attack them for anything just because I favor them.

58. Venom

Posts: 3723; Member since: Dec 14, 2017

I don't have a problem with HMD despite what you may think. I just think they should release more devices in the US and for some reason that seems to get you in your feelings.

63. meanestgenius

Posts: 22272; Member since: May 28, 2014

Lol, yes you do. That’s why you keep trolling HMD articles. But for some reason, you are just too afraid to own up to the truth and keep getting defensive about that and about the fact that they have proven that they don’t need the U.S. market to grow sales and market share.
