The struggles of big names giving in the best of camera features have been quite dramatic, from dual camera mobiles to that harboring triple sensor at the back. Even then, Samsung also succumbed to it by putting a fourth sensor on the back of its phone, the Galaxy A9.
It seems though, the race is not over yet. Nokia 9 PureView has come with its advances to feature a Penta Camera when unveiled by HMD Global during MWC 2019 in Barcelona. The camera has become way too much of a needed asset, and Nokia is giving in to that demand.
December 05, 2019: The wait is finally over! Nokia has started to roll out Google’s latest OS for mobile devices, Android 10, to the Nokia 9 Pureview. The phone was scheduled to get the highly-anticipated update before the end of the year, and it’s great to see Nokia adhering to the timeline.

Nokia has also promised a sizeable camera update in the coming weeks.
November 13, 2019: Nokia has been doing its best to keep its elaborate smartphone lineup as up to date as possible, and the company’s most expensive offering, Nokia 9 Pureview, is quite naturally invited to the party.
The company’s latest software offering for the device, however, isn’t anything worth drooling over, but is important, nonetheless. We don’t know the software version of the update right now, but the November 2019 security has been confirmed to be a part of the package.
November 08, 2019: As per Nokia’s previously-released Android 10 schedule, Nokia 9 Pureview should get the taste of Google’s latest OS by the end of the year — Q4 2019. Now, the company’s social media handle has let loose a juicy tidbit, revealing that Nokia’s preparing to roll out Android 10 for the Pureview in early December. We probably shouldn’t take the news too seriously, as the company still hasn’t given us a concrete rollout date, but an announcement regarding the release seems to be on the cards.

Nokia 9 Pureview Android 10 update release date
- Released on December 5th, 2019
Nokia has a good track record in distributing software updates. Nokia 9 is the company’s flagship device, so we expect them to update this device before all other handsets.
While the likes of Samsung Galaxy S10 and LG G8 will take forever to update to Android 10, we think Nokia will be able to deliver a beta Android 10 update to Nokia 9 by November 2019. We expect the stable Android 10 update to arrive by December 2019.
