The HMD Global licensed Nokia smartphone is reportedly going through a stage of upgradation by integrating an under display camera technology. The Nokia 9.2 is tipped to integrate an under display camera module to increase the display coverage and vanish the punch hole setup or a pop-up camera setup. The flagship smartphone, slated to be launched in the middle of the 2020, is said to have an advance version of camera specifications to provide a newer and upgraded version of Nokia smartphone.
The news was broken by a tipster Nokia_anew on twitter who stated that the under display camera technology is in it’s embryonic stage. The technology was earlier heard to be working upon by Oppo and Xiaomi, and now Nokia seems to be working on it too. With this advancement, a sight on the display will make anyone wonder if there isn’t any selfie camera installed in the phone. However, on activating the under display camera, the user can switch on the selfie camera.

By this technology, need for a punch-hole or the sliding mechanism for the pop-up camera could be terminated. We saw how the under display fingerprint scanner is in use in majority of the contemporary smartphones, in the similar way, the under display camera may be available in the next generation smartphones. Though, this may take another half a year to see this happening.
The Nokia 9.2 could be the first smartphone by the HMD Global to feature a technology like this. The flagship phone is reported to be the successor of the Nokia 9 PureView. However, the speculations are high that the smartphone may hold the price tag of Nokia 8 to make it more appealing for the larger masses. Also, on the processor front, the HMD Global could possibly feature Snapdragon 865 SoC for the new technology to synchronise with.
However, this could be too early to predict the insights of the under display camera as there may be numerous changes that the company may implement in the final version. Hence, we need to wait for something to surface up officially by HMD Global to believe on.
