Nokia 9 PureView gets face unlock, new camera features in first update

HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has announced four new android smartphones, including the world's first smartphone with a unique five camera array, the Nokia 9 PureView. The promotional price is valid for some time only after which the phone will cost $699. The highly anticipated camera that comes with five lenses on the rear break the record in the number of lenses used on a smartphone.

The Nokia 9 PureView is getting its first software update today, and it brings in a bevy of new features.

With a 21:9 display, a dual-camera system and aging Qualcomm Snapdragon 630-tier chipsets, you might be wondering how much you'd pay for a Sony Xperia 10 or Xperia 10 Plus. While you can pre-order the Nokia 9 PureView in the US right now, the phone hasn't yet hit the shelves. The five cameras work together in snapping the sharpest and most detailed images ever taken by a smartphone. The only real change that HMD Global made here, is in the camera. Impressively the case is just 8mm thick, and there's no camera bump in sight, despite the huge amount of photography tech inside.

Native black-and-white photography. Three f/1.8 monochrome sensors enable native monochrome mode. The Nokia 9 PureView is also IP67 rated, which means it is water and dust resistance. Most likely not. I mean, the trypophobic effect of the Nokia 9 PureView will most definitely not affect sales as the flagship is a Limited Edition device. Despite the lack of a Snapdragon 855, the Nokia 9 PureView is a very solid option for customers if they're searching for a flagship purchase in 2019. You can also shoot RAW photos, film in 4K HDR, and if that is not enough, then you can use the 20 MP selfie camera. All of the five cameras have the focal length of 1.8mm and aperture of 28mm.
