Nokia-9-PureView

After literally months of running around the rumor mill, the latest Nokia 9 PureView finally makes its much-awaited debut at MWC 2019 in Barcelona, Spain.

Let’s jump right into the action. The Nokia 9 PureView brags a Penta-camera setup on the back. That’s five cameras sitting in a circular arrangement on the back.

All five shooters have 12-megapixel sensors with ZEISS lenses at a wide-aperture of f/1.8. The first two sensors shoot in color, while the last three takes images in monochrome. There’s actually a sixth sensor, which is a ToF one for better depth sensing.

But unlike the Mate 20 Pro or the new Galaxy S10 devices, the Nokia 9 PureView doesn’t sport a telephoto or an ultra-wide angle lens. Instead of providing flexibility when shooting, what Nokia wants is to provide the best possible image quality.

The device uses all five cameras to take a single photo, which can capture images with mind-blowing dynamic range, finer details, and better focal control for improved depth-of-field.

Nokia claims that it can identify 1,200 layers, so you can fine-tune the blur effect, even after the shot is taken. Also, to utilize all its full potential, the Nokia 9 PureView can shoot images in RAW DNG format, so you have more flexibility while editing.

The rest of the specs is not so exciting. If you’ve been following the news, this device have been in development for a long time. Which is probably why it only comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. It will be bundled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.

The screen is pretty decent. There’s a 5.99-inch P-OLED screen QHD+ screen with an in-display fingerprint scanner. It runs on a clean Android 9 Pie OS, and has a 3,220mAh battery with 18W wired and 10W wireless fast charging
