HMD Global has been keeping busy, releasing a variety of smartphones throughout the year. While things have been good for the company, it looks like it might be just getting started. Just a few days ago we reported that HMD Global had purchased the 'PureView' trademark, and now it looks like the company has filed a trademark for 'PureDisplay'.
While at this point it isn't clear exactly what the 'PureDisplay' trademark will be used for, there is the possibility that it could indicate the firm will release phones with enhanced displays. Nokia has done this already once before, with its Nokia 920 featuring a PureMotion HD+ display.
For those that don't remember, PureMotion HD+ was described at the time of its release as combining "four leaps forward into one to deliver the fastest, brightest, most-sensitive smartphone display with the highest pixel density in the industry". What that essentially boils down to is that there are four things that make up a PureMotion HD+ display, with the first being that it offers a 60fps refresh rate. It also has a "high-luminescence mode" that would engage whenever in brightly lit areas.
The third feature of PureMotion HD+ was its increased sensitivity, offering users the ability to interact with the screen using a stylus, glove, or even a fingernail. Lastly, there was an increase of pixels on the display when compared to its competitors. Most of these features are normal by today's standards but it is possible that HMD Global will use the trademark to introduce a new kind of display technology for its new smartphones.
HMD Global also filed a trademark for something called 'Face unlock'. Again, there isn't a clue as to what this will be used for, but the company has secured it and it could come up sometime in the future. With that said, there is also the possibility that we may never see these trademarks used.
