After months of leaks and rumors, HMD Global has finally taken the wraps off its much-awaited flagship smartphone — Nokia 9 PureView.

The smartphone features a 5.9–inch P-OLED Quad HD+ display with 2960 x 1440 pixels screen resolution and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the device is powered by last year’s Snapdragon 845 chipset, which is a bit disappointed as most flagships launching this year will be powered by Snapdragon 855 SoC.

It packs 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Keeping up with the trend, the smartphone also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor. The major highlight of the smartphone is its rear camera, which comes with penta-lens setup from Zeiss.

The phone comes with three 12-megapixel monochrome sensors and two 12-megapixel RGB sensors. Each of these cameras is triggered when a person takes a shot and then the phone fuses these photos together to create a single image. On the front side, it features a 20-megapixel selfie shooter.

Connectivity options on this IP67 certified smartphone include Dual SIM, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and USB Type-C. It is running Android 9 Pie operating system out-of-the-box with next-generation Pro Camera user-interface. The phone is fuelled by a 3,320mAh battery which comes with support for wireless charging.

The Nokia 9 PureView is priced at $699 and will be available for pre-orders immediately in select markets around the world. However, the phone will go on sale from March 2019 and comes in only one color — Midnight Blue.
