HMD Global will be present at MWC 2019 in February and is planning to host event on February 24. If it is anything like last year, you can expect the company to announce a slew of phones that will slot in various price brackets, from feature phone to high-end. Apart from the Nokia 9 PureView, the only other phone we have heard of is the Nokia 6.2 with a hole-punch display. But the main attraction will be the highly rumoured Nokia 9 PureView, which is still on course to become the world’s first smartphone with five rear cameras.
The Nokia 9 PureView has been subjected to tons of rumours and speculations from the design to the hardware. We even saw a leaked promo video late last month that confirmed a lot of key details, assuming the video was the real deal. The Nokia flagship has been delayed quite a bit, but it is almost certain now that it will be unveiled at MWC 2019 as some official posters have suggested. Ahead of its launch, here’s a quick rundown of everything we know about the Nokia 9 PureView.
Nokia 9 PureView expected price in India
As a flagship smartphone, the Nokia 9 PureView will come with a premium price tag. That being said, the phone may not cost as much as an iPhone XS or Galaxy S10. According to a leak by Nokia_Leaks on Twitter, the Nokia 9 Pure View’s European pricing will be set around EUR 749 or EUR 799 depending on the market. This puts it roughly in the Rs 60,000 bracket in India, although you can expect the company to price the device more competitively in the country, if the flagship reaches the Indian market.
The leaked pricing is, in fact, similar to what the Nokia 8 Sirocco was priced in Europe. To recall, the Nokia 8 Sirocco was launched in India last year at Rs 49,999, so there is a good chance the Nokia 9 PureView will come to India with a similar or slightly higher price tag.
Nokia 9 PureView design and specifications
The Nokia 9 PureView will come with a premium design language that will include a glass and metal design. Based on the renders and promo videos so far, the glass back panel will curve around the edges to offer a comfortable grip and a seamless design. We also believe that there will be no physical fingerprint sensor on board and HMD will be going with an in-display fingerprint sensor instead.
The biggest attraction on the rear panel will be the penta-camera system that is set up like a pistol revolver. A total of seven cutouts will be seen on the back that are for five camera sensors, an LED flash and a proximity sensor, according to past reports.
While there is still no word on what sensors HMD is going with, a leaked promo video confirmed a few interesting features about the cameras such as the ability to take 5 simultaneous shots and allowing up to 10x more light, suggesting good low-light photography. The cameras will also offer “stunning crisp HDR photography.” The video also highlights the ability to re-focus post capture within Google Photos.
Interestingly, it seems HMD Global will not be going with a water drop display or a hole punch display with the Nokia 9 PureView. Instead, the flagship will get a typical 18:9 display with even bezels on the top and bottom, as per renders and the promo video. The Nokia 9 PureView will sport a 5.99-inch 2K display with HMD’s PureDisplay screen technology. The PureDisplay will offer high contrast and HDR10 support as well as the ability to upscale SDR content to HDR content.
Under the hood, the Nokia 9 PureView will likely come with a Snapdragon 845 chipset and not Qualcomm’s next-gen Snapdragon 855 processor. This wouldn’t be surprising considering the Nokia 8 Sirocco was launched at MWC last year with a Snapdragon 835 chip instead of a Snapdragon 845 SoC. The Nokia 9 PureView will also come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There may be an 8GB + 256GB configuration on the cards as well.
As for the software, the Nokia 9 PureView will launch with Android Pie. Like most Nokia phones, the Nokia 9 PureView will be part of the Android One program, which means you can expect a stock, clean Android interface with a promise of timely security updates.
Lastly, the Nokia 9 PureView is said to house a 4,150mAh battery, which is pretty big compared to what most Nokia smartphones have offered last year. The phone recently got certified by China’s 3C certification agency where it was also revealed that the Nokia 9 PureView will support up to 18W fast charging.
Meanwhile, Xiaomi CEO at the China launch of the Redmi Note 7 revealed that Note 7 Pro with 48MP camera paired with a Sony sensor will go official next month.

3.Xiaomi India has already officially announced that the Redmi Note 7 will be launching in India very soon.
Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 in its home market earlier this month. On Tuesday Xiaomi teased the global launch of the Redmi Note 7 via a picture. The photo shows the Redmi Note 7 with a wallpaper of a globe. This also hints that the Redmi Note 7 is coming to India much sooner than you can even imagine. Xiaomi India has already officially announced that the Redmi Note 7 will be launching in India very soon, we expect it to happen in few weeks, possibly in the first half of February.
Xiaomi India has been teasing the coming of the Redmi Note 7 for quite some time now. The company has confirmed that a 48MP camera phone will be heading to India very soon. Considering the Redmi Note 7 is the only Xiaomi phone with 48MP camera, that’s the phone coming to India next. Meanwhile, Xiaomi CEO at the China launch of the Redmi Note 7 revealed that Note 7 Pro with 48MP camera paired with a Sony sensor will go official next month. In case Xiaomi India changes its plans for the Redmi Note 7, the company could bring the Note 7 Pro to the country instead.
The Redmi Note 7 Pro will come with the 48MP camera as the Redmi Note 7 but will use a Sony sensor. The Note 7 uses a Samsung ISOCELL sensor. Rumours suggest the Note 7 Pro could use Sony IMX586 sensor. This means that the pictures that the Redmi Note 7 Pro will click will be much clearer and better looking than the ones captured with Redmi Note 7. The good news is, considering Redmi Note 7 comes with Samsung ISOCELL sensor the phone will be capable of clicking well lit pictures in low light situations.
Meanwhile, another report coming from Chinese microblogging site, Weibo, hints that Xiaomi could soon launch a 6GB RAM model with 128GB storage model of the Redmi Note 7. Currently, the Redmi Note 7 is available in three models — 3GB RAM/32GB of internal storage, 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, and 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. Compared to other models, the 6GB RAM with 128GB storage model of Note 7 will be expensive.
As for the prices, the base model of the Redmi Note 7 that comes with 3GB RAM/32GB of internal storage retails at 999 yuan (roughly around Rs 10,500), the second model comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage and sells for 1199 yuan which roughly translates to around Rs 12,400. Lastly, the top-end model of the Redmi Note 7 comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage which has been priced at 1399 yuan which when roughly translated comes to Rs 14,500.

The Galaxy M10 and M20 will both come with Infinity-V displays with a droplet-style notch. They are likely to come with plastic rear panels considering their prices.

New Mac Pro, iPhones, iPads, and more!
The holidays are over and it’s back to the doldrums of January. But in the tech world, the post-holiday blues and boredom can at least be alleviated in part thanks to the annual CES show, which begins January 7th. It’s where companies show off their latest tech for the new year.
One company, however, is always absent: Apple. That’s because the iPhone maker opts to announce new products on its own timeline. But just what will Apple release this year? Here’s everything that’s a safe bet for 2019.
This one is easy: there will be new iPhones this year, as always. However, people shouldn’t get their hopes up for an all-new design. The latest rumors suggest the 2019 iPhone XR and XS successors will have the same displays and form factors.
What will be different is a new, faster A13 chipset and the addition of a triple-lens rear-facing camera to replace the dual-lens camera found on the iPhone XS today. There’s also the possibility that the height of the notch could shorten, giving the new iPhones slightly more screen space.
It’s also possible the iPhone’s could ditch the Lightning port in favor of USB-C, like the current iPad Pros.
Apple Watch 5
There will also, without a doubt, be the next Apple Watch–the Series 5. However, there have been ZERO rumors so far to what it may be like. But expect improved or all-new health tracking features. And bands. Apple will always release new bands.
It’s highly unlikely the iPad Pro models will see much of an upgrade this year besides a spec bump to the A13 chipset. That’s because they just received a major redesign last year with the addition of Face ID. However, the current Pro models could become much more productive if the rumors for iOS 13 pan out (more on that below).
It’s possible Apple will redesign the regular iPad in 2019, ditching Touch ID for an all-screen design like the Pro and adding USB-C. And rumors say Apple will release a new 7.9in iPad mini with Face ID.
There is a strong reason to believe that if you want a new Mac you’ll be best to wait until 2020. That’s because its next year that Apple is rumored to be coming out with its first ARM-based Macs. These would be Macs with A-series processors that would allow for much faster MacBooks that are also thinner and have longer battery life.
That means any 2019 MacBooks and MacBook Pros should only see slight internal spec bumps. Same goes for iMacs and the Mac mini. However, users can expect a new Mac Pro. Apple has previously confirmed that the long-awaited update to the Mac Pro will ship in 2019 and expect it to be modular too.
iOS 13 And macOS 10.15
iOS 13 and macOS 10.15 are also a given–and they might be pretty significant upgrades. Rumors have it that iOS 13 could see an all-new home screen layout. Rumors also say the next macOS will be capable of running iOS apps. Indeed, macOS 10.14, released last year, saw four iOS apps ported to the Mac. Apple stated at the time that future macOS’s will support third-party iOS app porting.
And if iOS 13 does see a redesign, it could be that it will become a hybrid version of iOS and macOS, enabling the iPad Pro to finally become a true laptop replacement.
Apple’s all-in-one charging mat was first announced in 2017, but it didn’t materialize then–nor in 2018. Rumors say it’s still in the cards, however. I’d expect to see it launch sometime in 2019.
New AirPods are expected in early 2019. They should add “Hey Siri” hands-free Siri support and a new wireless charging case. But you may want to wait until 2020 to upgrade. That’s the year they’re rumored to get an all-new design.
Apple entered the smart speaker market pretty late with its £350 HomePod. As of now, the device only has about 6% of the smart speaker market. There are rumors Apple will introduce a low-end, lower-cost “HomePod mini” in 2019 to better compete with the likes of the Amazon Echo.
Apple TV Streaming Service And Apple TV Dongle
It’s almost a certainty that 2019 will still see the introduction of the long-rumored Apple TV streaming service to compete with Netflix, Disney, and Amazon Prime Video. There’s no word yet on what the service will be called or how much it might cost.
To go along with that service, rumors say Apple will introduce a new low-cost Apple TV dongle similar to other “stick” digital media players offered by Google, Roku, and Amazon. Apple is reported to be doing this so more people can afford hardware that will run Apple’s new streaming service. The current Apple TV lineup starts at a whopping £149.
Almost all of Apple’s products, from the iPad Pro to the iPhone to MacBooks to the Apple TV to the Mac mini got much more expensive over the last two years. Increasingly that higher expense is becoming an issue for consumers, many of who are saying they won’t upgrade Apple products as frequently because the increased cost for the latest device can’t be justified for relatively minor improvements.
It could be that 2019 is the year Apple begins making their prices more reasonable–or at least returning them to previous levels. Well, we can hope anyway.
Agreeing bolster reports on T-Mobile’s site, both the Moto E5 Play and the Moto E5 Plus are slated to dispatch on T-Mobile’s system on Friday, July 27. The documentation uncovers that the two handsets are set to get their “dispatch programming variant” on that date, proposing the two handsets will go experience this Friday. At the season of production, T-Mobile has not really reported these telephones, so remember that.
The Moto E5 Play includes a 5.2-inch show, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of inherent stockpiling. It has a unique finger impression peruser, a 8MP back camera, a 5MP forward looking camera, and a 2800mAh battery. It’s running Android 8.0 Oreo out of the container.
Moto E5 Play and E5
In the mean time, the Moto E5 Plus (imagined simply above) gloat a six-inch show, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of inherent stockpiling. There is a 12-megapixel camera on the back and a 8MP forward looking camera on the opposite side. The battery measures in at 5000mAh, it’s running Android 8.0 Oreo, and there is a unique mark peruser on board, as well.
T-Mobile’s most up to date cell phones will bolster the LTE Band 71, or 600MHz. T-Mobile says 600MHz means its LTE can achieve more remote than the competition’s, and has better execution when clients are utilizing their gadgets in structures.
No word on what the Moto E5 Play and Moto E5 Plus will cost when they do dispatch, however it’s probable they won’t require excessively of your well deserved money on the off chance that you do anticipate lifting one up.
