[Update: Now at Amazon] Nokia 9 PureView drops again to $499 ($200 off)

HMD publishes Nokia 9 PureView kernel source code

We've said it before, but Android OEMs are pretty hit or miss when it comes to releasing kernel source code, as mandated under the GPL license for using the Linux kernel. HMD is the definition of hit-or-miss, having just released the source code for the two-year-old Nokia 2 a few days ago. But here we have them releasing the source for the Nokia 9 PureView, a phone still considered new.

Owners of the Nokia 9 PureView have had a rough go with the in-display fingerprint sensor they've bought their phones — our Ryan Whitwam was not impressed with the fussing around and finger-jambing he had to do in order to achieve authentication. A software update last week was supposed to loosen up and get the sensor working as it should. But manufacturer HMD Global is now investigating a complaint saying that the phone is too loose, producing false positives from unknown fingers and even a packet of gum.

Nokia 9 PureView update addresses fingerprint scanner performance

There's a lot to like about the Nokia 9 PureView: it's got a unique camera setup, its construction feels high-end, and it's generally a solid performer. The in-display fingerprint scanner, though, just doesn't work as well as it should. Or at least it hasn't up until now — Nokia is pushing an update that's meant to address the scanner's poor performance.

The Nokia 9 PureView is a good phone ruined by serious problems

The HMD-backed resurgence of Nokia in the smartphone market has been a real treat to watch. After years of watching Microsoft bungle its Nokia acquisition, the Nokia name is again emblazoned on excellent smartphone products. However, most Nokia phones have been toward the budget end of the spectrum. They've been good for the money, but the Nokia 9 PureView is a true flagship with high-end specs, a wild five-camera setup, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. All that, and it's a few hundred dollars less than competing phones.

[Update: Sale is live, sort of] Nokia 9 PureView will drop to $600 ($100 off) on March 3

One of the more interesting new phones shown off at Mobile World Congress was the Nokia 9 PureView, a five-camera flagship intended to trade blows with the Pixel 3 and Galaxy S10. The entry price of $699 is a bit steep, considering it's using last year's Snapdragon 845 processor, but HMD Global is already planning the first sale.
