CAIRO, Feb. 27. (SEE)- Nokia unveiled the ”Nokia 9 PureView”, at ”Mobile World Congress 2019”, a legitimate flagship Android smartphone with five rear cameras. Instead of the soon to be common wide, telephoto and ultra-wide camera combination, the Nokia 9’s 5 camera array consists of two 12-megapixel color image sensors and three 12-megapixel monochromatic sensors, each with an f/1.8 aperture to collect tons of light.
The camera can also shoot in RAW format and spit out DNG files, which range anywhere between 28-30MB, with less noise and more dynamic range compared to processed JPEGs. Users can really recover a lot of stuff like highlights and shadows during post.
They will find a fairly typical set of controls and ports around the outer edges, the power button and volume toggle are on the right. Both work as expected for a phone of this caliber. The new version includes ”USB-C” on the bottom but you won’t find a 3.5mm headphone jack here.
The rear panel is gorgeous; it is finely curved from edge to edge. It may not sit totally flat on a table or counter, but the curved glass helps to reduce the footprint and makes the ”Nokia 9 PureView” sit deeper in your hand.
Using Adobe Lightroom, which is pre-loaded on the phone, we can set the focus point at any spot in the image and blur out the rest, as well as users can changing all of this after taking the shot to suit whatever your needs or creative desires.
The Nokia 9 PureView runs ”Android 9 Pie” out of the box with a strong commitment from HMD Global, and it will receive system updates for two years and security updates for three years.
”Nokia 9” will be available in the U.S. for $699 and 599 euros in Europe.
