Light previous launched a insane 16-camera device called the L16 and brings its experience in managing the sensors on the rear of the Nokia. However, prior to that, the Nokia 9 PureView has popped on the e-commerce site JD.com, spilling the beans over its specifications and other details.
The five-camera Nokia 9 PureView may be grabbing all the spotlight at HMD's MWC 2019 event, but it's far from the only new model making its debut. The phone is already shipping at a global average retail price of $699 (approximately Rs 49,640).
Looking at the "official" image renders online, we must say that the Nokia 9 PureView looks fantastic as there is no notch to be seen. Developed in partnership with Light, the unique five-camera setup makes use of five camera sensors of the same focal length and resolution - 12MP and f/1.8 aperture.
The handset is loaded with S30 software that comes with support for Mobile Store for downloading apps. Those are complemented by another 20-megapixel front shooter above the display.
The device is built from machined aluminum and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor along with imaging co-processor from Light.
Along with the camera, there's also a 2K pOLED PureDisplay screen, integrated Qi Wireless charging and under display fingerprint sensor. It has a 2.4-inch QVGA display and a rear VGA camera. It is loaded with apps such as Opera Mini Browser, Facebook and Classic Snake game.More news: Tiger’s most wonderful shot? Woods bends ball around trees from a bunker

Nokia 1 Plus succeeds the older Nokia 1 with a refreshed design and features. Still, the Nokia 9 is quite the effort from HMD Global and is once again putting Nokia's name on people's lips in the USA market, along with "flagship", "cutting edge", and "less expensive". You'll also get 4MB of RAM, as well as 16MB of storage.
Under the hood, Nokia 1 Plus runs on MediaTek's MT6739 quad-core processor.
Also on Sunday, the company unveiled four other Android smartphones - "Nokia 4.2" and "Nokia 3.2" with a dedicated Google Assistant button, "Nokia 1 Plus" that runs on Android 9 Pie (Go edition) and the company's most affordable internet-enabled "Nokia 201" feature-phone. Nokia 1 Plus carries a price tag of $99. Xiaomi Unveils Mi Mix 3, Its Maiden 5G Phone, Starting at Rs 48,258.
Nokia 4.2 is a new addition to HMD Global's kitty and also comes in a new "Sand Pink" colour in addition to black. As you might've read earlier, due to the chip-specific work needed to achieve the five-camera setup, it's still running last year's Snapdragon 845 flagship SoC.
Inside, there's a 3,000mAh battery and a Snapdragon 439 chipset powering the show with a little help from either 2GB or 3GB of RAM. Nokia 4.2 has dual 13-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear cameras, and an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
