We might see the return of the Nokia PureView

HMD Global obtains PureView trademark

Nokia has previous when it comes to camera-crazy phones: Remember the Lumia 1020's 41 (FORTY-ONE) MP camera?

HMD Global, the current owner of the Nokia brand, has just obtained the PureView trademark. This means that we could see the return of the popular Nokia PureView.

The news comes from a report by European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). Fans might notice that this could hint at devices such as the Nokia 808 PureView reborn, or something similar to the Lumia 1020 with a 41MP camera.

HMD has also patented other Nokia-related titles, which include Xpress-On and Asha. However, the company is yet to release a new smartphone focused on sound quality or respective brandings.


This is not the first Nokia-related moniker that HMD patented at EUIPO. There is also the Xpress-On and the Asha entries, but we are yet to see any sound-centric smartphone or a feature phone with the respective brandings. If earlier rumours are to be believed, a new smartphone might come with a circular setup, which could house a five lens rotary setup developed by ZEISS.

On the other hand, there are chances we might see an entirely new device bringing together PureView, Xpress-On and Asha, for a brand-new flagship phone.
