A month ago, HMD Global made major headlines with its 'penta-camera' flagship Nokia 9 PureView.
The device boasts of a strong set of specifications. But as it turns out, it's not as impressive on the security front.
Multiple Nokia 9 owners have reported that the in-display fingerprint scanner of the device is bugged and can be unlocked using chewing gum.
Here are the details.
Unregistered fingerprints, chewing gum pack unlocking Nokia 9
Over the weekend, some Nokia 9 users reported on Twitter that the device's in-display fingerprint scanner unlocked from unregistered fingerprints.
And it's not just third-party fingerprints; a Nokia 9 owner even demonstrated that the phone could be unlocked with something as random as a pack of chewing gum.
He shared a video where the phone can be seen registering a chewing gum pack.
