HMD Global was expected to launch its upcoming smartphone at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona but the company had to delay the release due to coronavirus pandemic. The company called the successor of the Nokia 9 as a Nokia 9.3 PureView. A fresh wave of leaks suggests that the next smartphone is said to feature 108-megapixel primary camera and 120Hz display. The smartphone might feature an array of camera sensors at the rear side - just like the Nokia 9 PureView. One of these camera sensors will be able to offer the optical image stabilization technique as well. The phone is now expected to available in the second half of this year after the first release was canceled due to coronavirus situation.
A reputable Nokia Tipster has shared some leaks about the smartphone. The phone might be using either a 108-megapixel sensor from Samsung or a 64-megapixel sensor from Sony. These sensors will be used to record video from the mobile camera. As per leaks, HMD CPO wanted to use only the 108-megapixel sensor and abandon the system of simultaneous operation of several sensors. The configuration of other cameras is unknown right now, but it is safe to guess that there will be telephoto, macro, and depth sensors along with the primary camera.
To display a high-refresh-rate at 120Hz the phone needs a high-capacity processor under the hood. The company will use the OLED screen on the display and a powerful Snapdragon 865 processor. The previous model used Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 plus. Another leak suggests the color options - Polar night, bold and lighter shades similar to copper hues HMD Global has already introduced before.
Recent rumors about the next upcoming smartphones suggest another low-budget smartphone by the HMD Global called Nokia 2.4. The device was spotted at Geekbench in the last month. A fresh report by Nokia Power User has revealed some important spec information on the device. As per leaks the highest variant of the Nokia 2.4 will have 3GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It will also come in 2GB RAM and 32GB storage variants. The device will be available in three color options such as grey, blue, and purple.
The Nokia 2.4 is reported to have a big 4,500mAh battery that is enough to keep it alive all day long with a single charge with support to fast charging. The phone features a 6.5-inch screen with 271 PPI and IPS LCD. The phone is powered by the octa-core 2GH MediaTek Helio P22 processor. The device supports dual SIM options. The expected launch date in India is around October this year but this isn't confirmed yet. Nokia 2.4 might be available fewer Rs. 10,000 in the Indian market. Coming to the FCC listing, the report states that the Nokia 2.4 has four variants - TA-1277, TA-1270, TA-1274, and TA-1275, out of which the TA-1270 is a dual-SIM variant. The rest of the specifications remain the same across all the variants.
According to the leaks, the Nokia 2.4 will feature a 13-MP primary camera with a 2-MP dual camera like the predecessor Nokia 2.3 phone. It houses a front-camera of 5-MP for selfies. The phone will come with an Android 10 operating system out of the box. Although we are not sure about its launch date yet, it could be one of the phones that HMD Global may launch at the IFA 2020 tech trade show in the next month.
Samsung had so far avoided the hated Notch, but it looks like they are all set to adopt it, albeit in their own adaptation of it. If the latest leak by Evan Blass is to be believed then the Galaxy S10 will sport a new kind of Infinity display that they are calling "O-Infinity." As you can probably guess, the "O" likely stands for the O shaped notch which Samsung is rumored to be going for in all likelihood. Evan Blass does have a solid reputation for sending out reliable leaks, so there might be some credit to this one after all, although, it is a bit early for leaks about the Galaxy S10.
His leak also stated that the S10 will have three rear cameras (standard, telephoto and wide-angle), an in-display fingerprint scanner and Samsung's new One UI, powered by Android Pie. Unfortunately, if the punch-hole notch turns out to be true, it also means that the foldable smartphone, aka the Galaxy X won't be the Galaxy S10, like a lot of us were hoping for. We will let you know as soon as we find out more about this.
