HMD obtains PureView trademark – GSMArena.com news

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.
