Will Nokia do it before Samsung?

You heard us right, here is a feature that almost all tech-giants wanted to introduce it first. From the beginning of the smartphone race since the original iPhone, every device wanted to shrink its bezels to a total Infinity-display. From different notches, punch holes and pop-up camera, we still couldn’t find a perfect alternative to this problem.

Well, here is Nokia 9.3 Pureview with an Under-Display selfie upfront. Nokia is said to have teamed up with Light for this new technology. Other than this, the rear camera system is the Pureview classic, with a four camera structure packing a standard, ultra wide, telephoto and depth sensing lens.

Oppo and Xiaomi had already introduced their concept model for Under-Display selfie camera. It was believed that the Samsung Galaxy S21 would be first phone to introduce a commercial version of this idea. But as per latest leaks by Ben Geskin, the render reveals that the Nokia 9.3 Pureview will not have a notch, punch or a pop-up sensor but will be utilising a new technology to click photos from within the display panel.

What is Under-Display Camera?

Under-Display camera is not visible on an active screen. The user will not be able to spot any hole or patch. Xiaomi calls this feature as an ultimate solution for a full screen display coexisting with the front camera.

The display area over the camera is a transparent sheet, when the user tries to capture a selfie or use video call, that part of the screen will instantaneously turn transparent, allowing the light to enter and capture the shot or activating the front facing shooter.

This definitely changes the concept of infinite or bezel-less display and applies a futuristic look to the device. Will this be a Nokia masterstroke to take on the Android market? We are still waiting for Nokia to confirm these rumour.
