Nokia 9 PureView goes official with five rear cameras | MWC 2019

25 February 2019 4

The Nokia 9 PureView has undoubtedly been the most rumored and leaked HMD Global device since it revived the Nokia brand. The main reason for so many leaks was the idea of a smartphone with five rear cameras. And as it turns out, those rumors were on point as the Nokia 9 PureView indeed has a Penta-lens setup on the back panel.

It is for the first time that a smartphone is featuring five cameras on the back. There are three 12-megapixel monochrome sensors with f/1.8 aperture and two 12-megapixel RGB sensors with ​f/1.8 aperture with ZEISS optics. When a shot is clicked, all five sensors come into the picture which helps in capturing ten times more light. This results in a significantly higher dynamic range, more details, and better sharpness. In simpler words, it captures a shot from all five sensors and merges them together to bring a single shot with the best possible output.


HMD Global says that Google Photos application will allow focus adjustment even after the shot has been taken. This is possible because the app is able to handle the depth map with ease. Since all these features are aimed at photography enthusiasts, there is also support for RAW "DNG" format. This will allow users to process the images as per the preference to get even better results. The team has teamed up with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for on-device post-processing.

As for other specifications and features, the Nokia 9 PureView sports a 5.99-inch Quad HD+ pOLED display with PureDisplay technology, HDR10 support, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Under the hood, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM. It features a 20-megapixel front camera and 128GB of internal storage with microSD card support. The whole package is powered by a 3,320mAh battery with Qi wireless charging support. On the software front, it is running Android 9 Pie out of the box. It further features IP67 certifications, USB Type-C port, and Qualcomm aptX audio support.

HMD Global has priced the Nokia 9 PureView at $699 with shipping already said to be underway.

  • So finally here it is - the first phone with five rear cameras is here in the masses. Want to test it out, especially how the fivesome would work together.

      • And what's wonderful is that even with the penta cameras being the Nokia 9 PureView's USP, they aren't pricing the phone too extravagantly.

          • How would the cameras really help Nokia in gaining more market with the camera feature? Simply more sensors don't mean more flashy design or approach.

              • "In simpler words, it captures a shot from all five sensors and merges them together to bring a single shot with the best possible output." I think, this should help. All sensors will work in unison to produce a better image!
