Not dead yet - Windows 10 Mobile updates for April 2019

icon

Windows 10 Mobile may be far from the front line of Microsoft's 2019 mobile plans, but the OS is still supported, whatever you might have read elsewhere. Underneath the hood the foundations are receiving kernel and security fixes today, for all phones currently running the 1709 and 1703 branches. Grab this April 2019 update in Settings, in the usual way.

Nokia X71: this probably IS the PureView phone you're looking for...

icon

After the disappointment of the oddball 'Nokia 9 PureView', compared recently here to the Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020 (etc), Nokia (at least the new Nokia brand under HMD) has now announced another contender, this time with a more conventional PureView 48MP f/1.8 sensor - phew! The X71 is only just shown in China and will probably arrive in Europe as the 'Nokia 8.1 Plus', in a few months time. But with 3.5mm jack, expandable storage and capacitive fingerprint sensor (all missing in the '9') as well, plus the single large sensor configuration (plus wide-angle), this possibly is the PureView phone you're looking to move to?

Meanwhile at MWC 2019: Nokia launches the '9 PureView'

icon

Rafe's over at MWC, though you don't have to wait for his comments to know that there is a new 'PureView' device released, exactly seven years after the Nokia 808 and six years after the Lumia 1020 - and from the new Nokia, run by HMD Global. Consider this the latest phase of the original PureView if you will, but the only real link other than the use of ZEISS lenses is that there's lots of computational photography going on.
