MWC 2019: Nokia 9 PureView, LG G8 ThinQ, HoloLens 2 AR

The Nokia 9 PureView has five rear cameras and that doesn’t even seem like that big of a deal. The anticipated Nokia 9 PureView is HMD Global’s newest and boldest flagship phone under the Nokia brand the Finnish startup acquired several years ago. A word of warning: HMD says this phone is a “limited edition,” being offered in a limited run.

In addition to introducing its first 5G phone, LG showed off another premium phone, the LG G8 ThinQ, at MWC. The G8 is the company’s follow up to last year’s G7 ThinQ and serves as its latest marquee handset. It’s one of the high-end Android phones that is set to compete against Samsung’s recently unveiled Galaxy S10. As the successor to the G7, the phone shares many of the same features. But LG updated the G8’s front-facing camera, which it calls a Z camera, to include a handful of new tricks — some of which pave the way for big changes in how users will interact with their phones.

Comfort, better visuals, easier to use with your hands. That’s the takeaway from HoloLens 2, Microsoft’s follow-up to the Space Age goggles it announced four years ago. The technology behind the $3,500 HoloLens 2 device, which Microsoft calls “mixed reality,” overlays computer images on the real world. Imagine arrows directing you down the street as you walk, or repair instructions floating over a machine as you fix it. That’s MR’s promise, Microsoft says.

Specs:

CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 Compute Platform and second generation custom-built Holographic Processing Unit.
DISPLAY: Equivalent of a 2k display for each eye, creating 47 pixels per degree — what Microsoft says is often called a “retina” display — with a 52 degree field of view. (The original HoloLens had the equivalent of a 720 display for each eye, at a 30 degree field of view.)
AUDIO INPUT: 5 channel microphone array.
AUDIO OUTPUT: Built-in “spatial audio.”
CONNECTIVITY: USB Type-C, 802.11ac 2×2, no cellular connectivity.
WEIGHT: 566 grams or 1.25 pounds. (The original HoloLens weighed 579 grams, or 1.28 pounds.)
