On first impressions we’re excited by the Nokia 9 PureView.
HMD Global today announced the Nokia 9 PureView, its premium device for the first part of 2019.
The Nokia 9 is the world’s first handset to use a camera featuring six sensors/modules: two 12 MP RGB sensors featuring Zeiss optics, three 12 MP monochrome sensors using Zeiss lenses, and a time-of-light (ToF) depth sensor.
The Nokia 9 PureView sits above the Nokia 8 Sirocco in the manufacturer’s lineup and is impressive for reasons beyond the five-camera array sprinkled across its rear panel.
2019 is the year of the Snapdragon 855, so you can imagine how we felt about the Nokia 9 having last-year’s 845. Even so, Nokia worked hard to take full advantage of the chip’s capabilities to process the images from all five cameras when taking a photo. Switching to SD855 would have meant that the Nokia 9 would have to be delayed quite a lot.
All you need to know about the Nokia 9 PureView’s top features, build and screen quality, performance, and its five-camera setup in a short and sweet video.
The Nokia 9 PureView will be available starting later March at a price of $699, which does not look too expensive for a unique flagship smartphone with very advanced imaging capabilities.
