Nokia 9.3: Display, Specifications and Cameras
Those who follow Nokia’s naming strategy know that the company loves releasing updated phones in the form of a point increase, so they take Nokia 7.2 as an example. However, in 2020, the company switched from Nokia 8.1 to Nokia 8.3. Juho Sarvikas, head of product at HMD Global at the time, explained that it was wise to keep everything online and move directly from Nokia 8 to 5G. There is no suggestion that HMD Global will use a different strategy on different devices. If you release anything from -.2, it will be the current date, so Nokia 9.3 looks like a name as widely suggested.
The device should be equipped with a matrix of five rear cameras, so the physical design is expected to be similar, but there are rumors that this time the five camera systems will be completely different. Early renderings suggested a cascading display, rebound glasses and a slightly square design, but that’s unlikely given Nokia’s newest device. There are also suggestions that the camera matrix will look much like Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 8.3 devices.
Details about the dimensions and sides of the Nokia 9.3 screen are thin at the bottom, but there are suggestions that it will have a 120Hz refresh rate. We saw it as “almost confirmed” and proposed the final decision. It will still be produced by HMD Global. The panel supplier must be LG. There was talk of a perforated camera and a sub-screen camera, and the latter proposal was the most progressive. The underscreen camera has been prototyped, but we have not yet seen a production model using this technology. It is difficult to establish the credibility of these claims, but we have seen this over and over again.
Hardware and Specifications
Nothing really has been said about the hardware of the new Nokia 9, but nothing else is likely other than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. Nokia is already taking a step towards 5G with Nokia 8.3, but I expect the Nokia 9.3 to be 5G as well, with the Qualcomm X55 modem lont like many recent smartphones.
The Nokia 9 PureView is notable due to its lighting system, which captures information by multiple sensors focused on image quality. It is believed that Nokia will give up its lighting system for a more traditional multi-camera system, which will probably be the high-resolution main camera, telephoto lens, wide angle and macro. We believe that Nokia will look at the success of companies like Huawei and follow this path instead. As Nokia thinks of working with Zeiss again, I expect to get the exclusive Zeiss effect from the camera as well.
This is probably one of the most attractive things about the Nokia 9.3 PureView, which is pure Android software. You don’t have a lot of choice for a pure Android phone. If you don’t use the Pixel 4 XL, you don’t have a lot of options. This could turn into a Moto Edge+, and Nokia definitely plays in the pure Android space.
