HMD Global announces the Android One Nokia 9 with 5 rear cameras

So what do you think of the penta rear camera setup on the Nokia 9 PureView? All of the five cameras on Nokia 9 PureView work simultaneously at the press of a button to create the final output image.

Every shot taken by the Nokia 9 PureView uses all five cameras to capture at least 60MP of imaging data.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus is powered by Snapdragon 636 SoC.

HMD Global says the Nokia 9 PureView's software can control each lens individual. The brand has an event scheduled at the biggest tech extravaganza Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019, in Barcelona where it'll take the wraps off the device and a bunch of other products. And because Google Photos is the default gallery and photo editing app on the Nokia 9, users will be able to manipulate aspects like the focal point and strength of blur after the fact, using a series of sliders in the app. Nokia rethought the typical duties of the chipset for crunching images, and shifted some of the responsibilities around to improve efficiency. Finally, the images are fused into a single HDR photo with texture and detail from both the shadows and the highlights. Speaking of which, HMD is boasting up to 1,200 layers of depth in the Nokia 9's bokeh mode, and the difference can be plainly seen, and manipulated, in Google Photos.

The depth map allows lovely bokeh, giving you the possibility to adjust focus in Google Photos after you have taken the shot.

The smartphone also features the ability to capture images in uncompressed Raw DNG (digital negative) format and edit them directly on the phone using Adobe Lightroom.

The Nokia 9 PureView is technically a limited-edition device.

There's something called Pro Camera UI where you can set the exposure value to 10 seconds. In addition to that camera-powerhouse flagship, we're also getting a handful of new affordably priced models, as the Nokia 4.2, Nokia 3.2, and Nokia 1 Plus all premiere alongside it.

The Nokia 9 PureView is packed with advanced technologies. This one runs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor. "It comes with a 5.99" edge-to-edge pOLED QHD display with 2K resolution that supports HDR10. No Bayer filter means more light reaches the sensor, which is great for low-light shooting, but it also enables native B&W shots. All five cameras are seamlessly integrated into the 8mm slim phone ensuring there is no camera bump. These include Nokia One Plus, Nokia 3, Nokia 4 and Nokia 210. Later on, it was updated to Android Pie last October.

We were pleasantly surprised by the original Nokia 1, which ran on Android Oreo. The feature phone comes in three colour options of white, black and red.

The Nokia 9 PureView is certainly shaping up to be one of the more unique flagships of 2019, and one photographers in particular will want to watch very closely.

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