The Nokia 9 PureView is undoubtedly the star of the show and with the phone are a ton of new quirks and features brought to life. The Nokia 9 instead of following all the trends which reside in the minds of brands like Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi and Huawei have opted for a more mature and more intriguing approach.
