Nokia 9.3 could feature 108-megapixel camera
In other news, the upcoming Nokia 9.3 PureView flagship smartphone was recently tipped off to feature a 108-megapixel camera. There are reports claiming that the company has tested 24-megapixel, 20-megapixel and 48-megapixel sensors for the Nokia 9.3 PureView, before landing on the 108-megapixel sensor. If rumors are to be believed, the upcoming phone could launch in August or September.
Moreover, the phone is also tipped to feature a 120Hz refresh rate panel, something a lot of flagships are carrying now. We recently saw the Samsung Galaxy S20 series feature 120Hz panels and then the OnePlus 8 Pro also featured the same. The launch of the upcoming Nokia phone has been delayed a few times and the core reason is due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic that has taken a huge hit on manufacturing and logistics across the globe.
