The Nokia 9 PureView didn't do well on the sales charts. The devices offered a lot, with Nokia created hype around its ambitious 5 camera setup that could collect up to 10 times more light than a single smartphone camera color sensor. Although, the company couldn't execute it well, with its light and Zeiss co-engineered camera technology couldn't live up to the consumer's expectations. The NPU claimed that Nokia canned its partnership with light and the 9.1 PureView and currently focusing on the 9.2 PureView instead.
NPU states that the phone will be released in the first quarter of 2020. Nokia's collaboration with the German optics manufacturer, ZEISS, is almost certain to continue for the next device but the device won't be using the fancy camera technology that was in the Nokia 9. This didn't come as a surprise that the phone will be leaving out the technology in favor of a more conventional approach. The Nokia 9 uses complex image processing and algorithms to capture a single shot from five cameras. But this year, the Nokia 9.2 will be using the conventional Toshiba lenses. The front-camera might feature a 32-megapixel sensor.
As per the rumor, the 9.2 PureView will feature the latest Snapdragon 865 chipset, along with a large primary camera at the rear side. The company delayed the release of the phone to use the upgraded SoC, which means we won't be having the Nokia 9.2 until the autumn. We hope that the Nokia will release its new flagship smartphone at the MWC 2020 next month, given that HMD Global used the Barcelona event to launch the Nokia 9 PureViewlast year. With the conventional camera technology, we could see this device around the $600 price mark alongside wireless charging and headphone jac. That's around the same price its predecessor was last year.
It has now been confirmed; Samsung has indeed released the first Android 8.0 final build for the Galaxy S7 Edge in Vietnam and although it was a mistake, some users have indeed received it and they are the only ones in the entire world to be lucky enough to run the official Oreo firmware on their devices before the company even intended.
According to the user who reported this update, the firmware version on the update is G935FXXU2ERB2 and it also updates the UI to Samsung Experience v9.0. If you are wondering if this is false news or not, do check the screenshots. In case you happen to be one of the unlucky millions who did not receive the OS upgrade yet, rest assured that you will, but not anytime soon. According to SamMobile, the update could be coming in around two months' time, which seems logical, given the fact that Samsung will update the S8, S8+ and the Note 8 first.
