Nokia has raised the bar when it comes to mobile photography with the introduction of its new Nokia 9 PureView smartphone – the world’s first to feature five rear cameras.
Nokia also announced three other devices – the Nokia 4.2, the Nokia 3.2 and the Nokia 1 Plus.
NOKIA 9 PUREVIEW
The Nokia 9 PureView redefines all imaging technology and puts a serious photography tool in the hands of enthusiasts.
The five cameras work together to capture a 60-megapixel image.
It uses two lenses for accurate colour and three lenses to provide the sharpness and detail with all five sensors working together to collect up to 10 times the amount of light of a single sensor.
Each image captured with the Nokia 9 PureView is HDR (high dynamic range) with up to 12.4 stops of dynamic range and a full scene 12-megapixel depth map which provides incredible detail in areas of both bright sunlight and shade.
Users are also able to refocus their images after they have been captured as well as adjust blur and saturation in the shot.
Also on board is a dedicated imaging co-processor which can adjust exposure and white balance on each of the five cameras across the scene.
“Nokia smartphones have always pioneered imaging innovation. True to that legacy, we are taking a significant leap forward in introducing the most advanced computational imaging system on a smartphone – the Nokia 9 PureView,” says Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global, the company behind the Nokia brand.
“Designed for photography enthusiasts, the Nokia 9 PureView is the only smartphone to capture images simultaneously from all five lenses to give you an image capture so rich that post processing possibilities are endless. On top, we bring power editing suites like Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Google Photos depth editor right to your fingertip – now explore every detail with your Nokia 9 PureView.”
This device punches above its weight in terms of design and features for the expected affordable price.
It has a sculpted glass design and in all screen display with the dual rear camera and the latest generation Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset.
It also has a dedicated Google Assistant button which will change the way you engage with your device.
Users are able to press once for instant access to Google Assistant to find information and control smart devices while two presses of the bottom bring up a visual snapshot of your day.
With this new smartphone, you’re getting the biggest HD+ display at this price range.
The 6.26 inch screen lets you enjoy your favourite content and apps on a larger scale and also throws in two-day battery life as well.

This entry-level device is a brand-new member of the Nokia family that includes impressive image quality through to autofocus rear camera and also provides even better selfies thanks to the new “beautify feature”.
The Nokia 9 PureView will be available soon from JB Hi-Fi with the Nokia 4.2, the Nokia 3.2, and the Nokia 1 Plus to follow soon after
