There was a time when Nokia was the first choice of almost every Bangladeshi. Five years ago when Microsoft bought Nokia’s smartphone business, a void was created. However they are back in the business with new smartphones and Nokia 9 PureView is the latest addition.
With Nokia’s signature metal trim around the edge and imposing stature, it’s ready to take the spot as the brand’s flagship phone. The front looks generic and won’t really impress you. With its big (for 2019) top and bottom bezels, it looks a bit dated and reminds us of the LG G6 (which came out in 2017). Still, for some people, that kind of look is better than a notch. But compared to the Galaxy S10+, for example, this looks like a phone from another time period.
The dull impression the front gives is nowhere to be found on the back, however. The full camera assembly consists of the five main cameras, the flash, and the ToF camera, all identically shaped and positioned in a hexagon formation.
DisplayThe Nokia 9 has a 6-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1440x2880 pixels, which results in sharp and clear visuals. While you can't adjust the resolution, you may switch between three display modes: vivid, cinema and basic. ‘Vivid’ has the most intense colours, while ‘basic’ is a bit dulled down. There’s also a ‘dynamic’ mode, which will switch between the modes depending on what you’re doing with your phone.
