HMD obtains PureView trademark

Yordan, 27 August 2018

HMD Global is the current owner of the Nokia smartphone brand and as such knows how to pull fans’ strings with plenty of nostalgia-induced products. First, it was the Nokia 3310 (2017), followed by the Nokia 8 Sirocco and the banana-shaped Nokia 8110 4G.

According to a listing on the European Intelectual Property Office (EUIPO), HMD Global now owns the rights to use PureView, meaning we might see the beloved Nokia 808 PureView reborn or a phone with the same tech like the Lumia 1020 with a 41 MP camera.

Is the PureView family getting another member?

This is not the first Nokia-related moniker that HMD patents 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 the company plans to launch a PureView smartphone, it might come in a circular setup, as some early schematics suggested back in the beginning of 2018. According to some Chinese sources, it might have up to five lenses in a rotary setup, developed by ZEISS.

Can you imagine another 808 with current tech/processing? Nokia get it done! If the 808 can still hold its head high now then imagine it with new tech.
