Nokia 3.1 Plus Starts Getting Android 9 Pie Update

As its most-advanced smartphone till date, HMD Global has launched the Nokia 9 PureView in Barcelona.

Starting with the imaging capabilities of the phone, the Nokia 9 PureView's camera system has been developed in partnership with Light. As such, it may seem like a small detail, but it shows that HMD Global is more concerned with the photographic elements of the device than it is the display. Each camera will be Zeiss optics with two cameras being RGB and the other three being monochrome cameras. Flip the phone over and you'll find a five-camera array that sits flush with the Gorilla Glass 5 back plate.

The cameras on the Nokia 9 are definitely the highlight of the device. All five will be 12-megapixels with an aperture of f/1.8. Additionally, Pro Camera app from Nokia has also bagged some minor updates for this device. There's also IP67 water and dust resistance in tow and how can we forget about wireless charging. On the other hand, the Nokia 4.2 will officially cost $169 for the 2GB + 16GB version and $199 if the consumer prefers the 3GB + 32GB version.

The company's next device takes the form factor of the successful Nokia 1 and gives it a more premium look - it looks like a smaller Nokia 6.1.

The 4.2 runs on a Snapdragon 439 chip - it has octa-core A53 processor and Adreno 505 GPU.

HMD also unveiled a feature phone Nokia 210 that will be priced around Rs 3,500 a unit.

Speaking of the camera setup, we're still on the fence, only because there's only so many pictures one can take within the confines of an expo booth. The 808 could even be bought with a camera bag and tripod, such as the seriousness of Nokia's photographic intentions. At the rear, there's an 8MP camera with autofocus, and up front a 5MP snapper. Nokia 9 PureView is based on Google's Android One, which means it will be among priority phones to receive the latest software and security updates from the company.

Nokia 9 PureView performance As for the performance, the smartphone doesn't deliver the best of specifications. Screen size will be 5.99 inches with an 18:9 (1440 x 2880) resolution, which will all be powered up by a 3320 mAh battery.

Nokia 9 PureView has RAW file support as well. "The phone comes with a 2.4" QVGA display and a VGA camera on the rear with an LED flash, sorry no front-facing camera for you selfie-taking folks out there. Also included with the Nokia 4.2 is a fingerprint scanner and a dedicated Google Assistant button which Google has announced will coming to more mobile devices.
