Nokia 9 PureView official with bonkers five camera setup

Posted February 25, 2019

The Nokia 9 PureView features the world's first five camera array system with ZEISS Optics. From the front, the new smartphone looks nearly indistinguishable from the recent slew of Android-powered rivals.

The Nokia 1 Plus is another budget member in the Android Go initiative and runs the Android 9.0 Pie Go edition.

For starters, all five sensors are almost identical: 12MP with f/1.8 lenses.

Honestly, the design of the new camera looks a lot like a spider's eye.

A 3,320 mAh battery keeps the phone humming and it can be topped up via Quick Charge 3 as well by wireless charging. There's also a dual-tone LED flash and a Time Of Flight (ToF) sensor for video capture, too.

Nokia is going down the digital route with its camera functionality. For those who struggle with maths, that results in a single 60-megapixel photograph.

Photos taken from the Nokia 9 are handled exceptionally well in Google Photos since it can recognize the depth map.

HMD Global has packed three 12MP monochrome f/1.8 cameras and two 12MP RGB f/1.8 cameras for a total of five rear cameras.

Light previous launched a insane 16-camera device called the L16 and brings its experience in managing the sensors on the rear of the Nokia. According to the company, each single lens shoots simultaneously at the same time when a user is relying on the camera.

So, what is Nokia doing with all of this information? The photo showed good detail and dynamic range but it's not clear if it was taken from the Nokia 9 flagship. Using the preinstalled Google Photos app, you can make the background out of focus to highlight the foreground or vice versa.

The Nokia 9 PureView with a penta-lens camera system is now official. You can always overhaul the entire photograph at a later date.

The device also includes a Snapdragon 439 processor, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage or 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, just like the Nokia 4.2. This new chipset helps to take some of the strain off the SnapDragon 855 to avoid battery life suffering.

HMD Global on Sunday launched five new Nokia smartphones.

Those five cameras (plus 3D ToF sensor) create a high-fidelity depth map for shallow depth of field rendering.

Given the size of the images, Nokia has made sure that the processing for HDR and the link is done after the image is shot, so there's a seamless process. However, a smaller 2MB thumbnail will be available instantaneously in Google Photos. Nokia 4.2 will ship with Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box.

Both models do come with a microSD slot though, allowing you to build on the internal space with cards up to 400GB in size. For selfies there's a 20-megapixel front camera.

When it comes to viewing those megapixel-packed photographs, Nokia has spared no expense. Going by the previous leaks and rumours, the smartphone will sport a 5.99-inch Quad-HD+ AMOLED HDR10 display. The smartphone has a 5.71-inch HD+ display with 19:9 aspect ratio. It is IP67 rated. There's no word on United Kingdom pricing on SIM-free or contract handsets, but we'll update this article as soon as we hear.

Nokia doesn't throw the PureView name around lightly, and that's because it's associated with Lumia phones that even today maintain a legacy not just over great photo quality but of attention to software detail that professionals appreciate.
