Nokia officially reveals Nokia 9 PureView, the smartphone with 6 lenses

Nokia officially reveals Nokia 9 PureView, the smartphone with 6 lenses

All five cameras will fire each time you press the shutter, Nokia says.

Impressed though we've been with Nokia's budget and midrange smartphones as of late, it's always felt like there's been something missing from the top of the Finnish brand's lineup. Also, it's the first Nokia phone that comes with an optical in-display fingerprint sensor.

Like most flagships of late, the Nokia 9 is a glass sandwich wrapped around an aluminum frame.

Key features on the Nokia 4.2 include a 5.71-inch display, dual rear cameras and a power key which also houses a notification light, giving you subtle nudge to tell you it may be worth checking your phone. Going by the previous leaks and rumours, the smartphone will sport a 5.99-inch Quad-HD+ AMOLED HDR10 display. We'll have to see how well its luminosity adapts with more time and varied scenarios, though. For selfies there's a 20-megapixel front camera. "The Nokia 9 PureView also features a bright 5.99" 2K pOLED screen with PureDisplay technology and integrated Qi Wireless charging.


We're still waiting to see samples from the camera, but we will be sure to share then as soon as Nokia release some. It can also take additional rounds of exposures to capture up to 240MP of data per photo. Each has a 12-megapixel sensor paired with an f/1.8 lens. In fact, HMD partnered with Light to deliver the goods.

Speaking of low light, HMD claims that this PureView camera captures 10 times more light than a single sensor. This is a world's first five camera array and it's an interesting look.

The Nokia 9 packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor along with 6GB of RAM. It has been said that 50% of the art of photography is in post-production and with Nokia 9 PureView you have every opportunity to shine.

The huge amount of processing grunt inside the new flagship Nokia coupled with the Light co-processor means the five-camera is still capable of shooting 60-megapixel images in a burst mode. The bad news, though, is that it'll be a limited-production device, though HMD isn't saying how many it'll actually be producing.


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

Nokia 210 feature phone comes with internet support and Opera Mini browser built-in. However, a smaller 2MB thumbnail will be available instantaneously in Google Photos. Additionally, HMD Global included 16 or 32GB of inbuilt storage, once again depending on the variant, expandable via microSD card (up to 400GB) on the Nokia 3.2.

The Nokia 9 PureView will give you access to the DNG RAW file for editing - and it will be supported by Adobe Lightroom. We can't express how relieved we are to hear this price announced - we only wish it were compatible with all carriers. The penta-camera setup has been described by many of our readers as trypophobia-inducing several times in the past, and if you thought so before, we don't think the official renders will sway your mind. As a result, the Nokia 9 PureView can take better portrait photos, which can rival those taken from a DSLR. It's not a ideal setup, though. It is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 SoC. The SoC is supported by 6 GB of RAM.
