Nokia 9 PureView Press Render Leaked, Shows Penta-Lens Camera and In-Display Fingerprint Sensor

Nokia 9 PureView has now leaked via a press render.
The render reveals a metal frame as well as Android One branding about the Nokia 9. The new smartphone, which is speculated since the very first Nokia smartphone with a penta-lens camera installation, was initially rumoured to arrive this year. However, Nokia brand licensee HMD Global was recently reported to have delayed the Nokia 9 launch as a result of a production line issues for its cameras. The handset recently tipped to launch sometime in the last week of January 2019.
Tipster Evan Blass, who’s famous for revealing unannounced developments through his Twitter accounts @evleaks, on Sunday leaked the media leave of the Nokia 9 PureView. The render shows the new Nokia model with a thin-bezel, flat screen panel that does not have some curved edges – unlike any of the current Samsung flagships. The panel of this Nokia 9 also doesn’t have any screen notch. Further, there is apparently a metallic frame, with glass panels covering the front and back sides.

The leaked render of this Nokia 9 additionally highlights its penta-lens camera installment that’s speculated to sport five Zeiss-branded camera sensors in a circular form, together with an LED flash and a proximity-detecting dual sensor. Some previous rumours have also claimed the Nokia 9 will come with a 6-inch screen in addition to possess 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.

Alongside giving a clear appearance of the penta-lens camera, the leaked press render suggests an in-display fingerprint sensor on the Nokia 9 PureView. The smartphone also appears to have Android Onebranding at the back. This implies we can safely assume the availability of stock Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box and upgradability into Android Q.

Blass emphasises the Nokia 9 PureView is now under development with codename”Beholder”. At first, the smartphone was rumoured with the codename”Olympic”.

A report earlier this month claimed the HMD International postponed the launching of the Nokia 9 due to production line problems, especially with the complex penta-lens camera installment. Nonetheless, the smartphone could be in plans to arrive at the last week of January 2019. A render surfaced last week showed”one month” alongside the concept picture of the Nokia 9. That hinted in its birth next month.

Initial reports claimed that the Nokia 9 PureView will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. However, HMD Global could also decide on the next-generation, Snapdragon 855 SoC to deliver a full size, high-end flagship encounter. The Nokia 9 PureView may also come in single and dual-SIM choices .
