Many smartphone companies are currently in a race for a truly bezel-less smartphone. So far, we have seen big notches, waterdrop notches, punch-holes, and pop-ups. All of these are because there has to be a place for the selfie camera somewhere. So far, this seems to be the main limitation to the realization of a truly bezel-less smartphone.
OEMs are now working on delivering a proper solution – an under-display selfie camera. This is a camera that will simply blend with the phone’s display. After the delivery of the under-display fingerprint sensor technology, the under-display selfie camera has been widely talked about. Companies such as Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi, and Oppo are already working on it. However, according to a report, HMD Global may be the first to deliver the under-display selfie camera with the Nokia 9.3 PureView.
There was a report earlier this year that claimed that the Nokia 9.3 PureView would be the first phone to boast the under-display camera technology. A more recent report has shown that the phone will be launched in Q3 2020. Now, a new report has appeared from Nokia Power User stating again that the Nokia 9.3 PureView would launch with an under-display front-facing camera.
Nokia Power User cited a source very close to the Finnish firm. According to them, the Nokia 9.3 Pureview will come with PureDisplay V3 technology. The source claimes that HMD Global has been working on the under-display selfie camera along with a pop-up mechanism. The company has reportedly found the technology stable enough to include in a new flagship.
Meanwhile, we also already know that the Nokia 9.3 PureView will boast a 120Hz refresh rate and a 108MP primary camera. The primary camera will be joined by a 64MP sensor and three other sensors. The device will also sport a 48MP selfie camera. We cannot wait to see the quality of this if Nokia indeed employs the under-display camera technology.
