The race for a rimless smartphone has spawned trends such as water notches, pop-up cameras and holes. So far, the only restriction for companies to offer a truly smartphone without a rim is the front camera. While companies like Asus have adopted a single camera that snaps forward when needed, no one wants to give up the selfie snapper. After the fingerprints below the screen, OEMs are now trying to offer a suitable camera under the screen. Many companies such as Oppo, Xiaomi, Huawei and Samsung are already working on this. But which company will be the first to offer a smartphone with this feature? According to a report, it will be HMD Global with the Nokia 9.3 PureView.
Nokia’s next flagship could be the smartphone with the most innovative selfie camera of 2020
Earlier this year, we saw a report claiming that the Nokia 9.3 PureView could be one of the first phones to feature this technology. More recently, another report revealed that HMD Global will make its official flagship in the third quarter of 2020. Today, a new report from Nokia Nokia User once again states that the Nokia 9.3 PureView will come with a front snapper below the screen. It reports information from a source very close to the Finnish company. According to them, the new smartphone will feature PureDisplay V3 technology. In addition, the new headset panel will offer a refresh rate of 120Hz.
According to the source, HMD Global is testing the selfie camera under the screen along with an emerging device. According to information, the company seems that the camera technology under the screen is stable enough to come to a new flagship. The Nokia 9.3 PureView is said to come with a Penta-Camera installation with a 108MP main camera, 64MP sensor and three other unspecified sensors. As for the selfie camera, it is said to offer a 48MP camera. If Nokia offers this technology below the screen, we are very curious to see what the quality will be like.
In addition to the camera specifications, the new handset will debut with the Snapdragon 865 and Android 10.
