Nokia 9.1 PureView Will Feature 5G and Better Camera Performance

The Nokia 9.1 PureView has been the subject of many talks, mostly because of its unusual five-camera rear setup that also hosted a time-of-flight sensor. However some users were disappointed by the outdated chipset the phone featured and were even less satisfied by the camera setup’s abilities – the camera app took very long to start up and it also crashed quite often. 

While HMD did eventually push some software updates that dealt with those issues, the camera system still couldn’t compete with rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G or the Huawei P30 pro.

So Nokia got to work to deliver a new and improved second-generation flagship that promises to do right what its predecessor couldn’t. 

The Nokia 9.1 PureView was expected to make an appearance during the Q3 2019, however, HMD Global pushed back that date as it wanted to continue to improve the camera’s capabilities for a while longer. 

The phone will most likely feature the same camera setup as its predecessor, albeit with some improvements and, considering the Nokia 9 only landed in stores this spring, we most likely won’t see any major design changes. 

It has been rumored that the front camera will be hosted in a punch-hole and that the phone will have thinner bezels than its predecessor. 

The Nokia 9 was not received too well by the users because of the many camera issues it featured but, at the end of the day, it was not the camera hardware itself that did not deliver, it was the software. That’s probably the biggest change we’ll see on the 9.1 model.

According to some sources belonging to NokiaPowerUser, the device will have a “better camera performance with a special focus on video and low-light performance” as well an improved camera speed, a better processor and improved software algorithms. 

The company is currently working alongside Light to develop and optimize the camera module which is touted to deliver high quality night time photos and video recording. 

The Nokia 9.1 PureView will also allegedly arrive with 5G capabilities, which means that it will most likely feature Qualcomm’s latest smartphone processor: the Snapdragon 855.

Other specs might include Android Q out of the box and at least 128GB of storage coupled up with 6GB of RAM. 

Its predecessor sold with a price tag of $700 (but its price has decreased to around $500 already) so it’s fair to assume that the 9.1 PureView will cost more or less the same, though if its 5G abilities and upgraded processor prove to be real, we might actually see quite a bit of a price increase which will get the phone up to at least $800.
