Nokia 9 Pureview launched at MWC 2019: Key specs, features, expected India price and everything you need to know

first_imgFor months we heard rumours. On Sunday evening Nokia officially launched the Nokia 9 Pureview phone at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The Pureview moniker attached to the phone’s name says something: this is a phone that aims to further Nokia’s legacy of making smartphones with brilliant cameras. And to buttress this point, the Nokia 9 Pureview sports five rear cameras at the back, complete with the Zeiss branding.The Nokia 9 Pureview, apart from packing a fairly slick camera, also sports high-end hardware.

This is a high-end processor, but this year barely so because this year the new king of the hill is the Snapdragon 855.
