  • The Nokia 9.3 PureView could be HMD Global's first phone to offer 8K video recording.
  • It is also rumored to come with enhanced "Pro" and "Night" modes.
  • The phone is expected to debut at a dedicated event in late August or early September.

Last month, a report published by the folks at NokiaPowerUser shed light on the camera specs of the rumored Nokia 9.3 PureView 5G. The publication has now come up with a new report, which reveals some key camera features of the upcoming flagship.

As per the new report, Nokia 9.3 PureView might be capable of recording videos at up to 8K resolution. HMD Global is apparently working on finalizing the camera and editing algorithms for 8K video recording, even though it is "still considered to be an experimental feature."

Along with 8K video recording, the next Nokia flagship phone might also come with improved "Night" and "Pro" camera modes. The enhanced Pro mode on the Nokia 9.3 will include "enhanced controls and refined algorithms," while the new Night Mode is said to take advantage of OIS and the bigger pixel size of the phone's main camera sensor. More interestingly, the report claims ZEISS is helping HMD Global optimize some "exclusive" camera effects for the flagship phone.

The Nokia 9.3 PureView is rumored to sport a penta-lens camera system on the back with a 64MP main sensor and a 108MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, both equipped with optical image stabilization. It is expected to have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 processor under the hood, which is currently among the few mobile processors to support 8K video recording. Previous leaks have suggested the phone might also feature a 120Hz display and an in-display selfie camera.

  • Well... colour me interested... I want to see the device itself. For an upgrade, it's between this, the 8.3...or the 7.3 which hasn't been announced yet.
  • Same. 6.1, 7.1 and now a 7.2 owner here. Really enjoying these devices.
  • The 8.3 is more interesting than the 9.3.
  • I'm with the 7.1 now for a year, and the phone was a saviour for me and it has done more than right by my during this time. The software, hardware and user experience has been excellent and solid all around. No, the device and Android One programme are not perfect, or the best ever. Then again what device or software version is? But for mr as a customer, they are exactly what I need. Honestly, I could use this phone 3-4 years and still get a lot of use out if it. It's more that I kind of gotten used to upgrade every two years or so. Of course if it's worth it.
  • The Nokia 9.3 will be just as mediocre as the Nokia 9 Pureview was and still is.
