At MWC 2019, Nokia today announced its flagship smartphone, the Nokia 9 PureView. The main highlight of this device is its 5-camera setup on the back that enables numerous imaging features. The five 12 MP cameras can collect up to 10 times more light when compared to a single smartphone camera color sensor. As a result, you will be able to take photos with great dynamic range that capture detail and texture from both the highlights and shadows and incredible depth-of-field. Nokia 9 PureView camera setup highlights:
- Five 12 MP cameras with ZEISS Optics
- Exceptional dynamic range in every shot. HDR images and video captured with Nokia 9 PureView feature exceptional dynamic range, preserving the details within the highlights and shadows alike.
- Incredible depth-of-field – adjust the focus after the shot. Using depth mode, Nokia 9 PureView can identify over 1,200 layers which it uses to build a detailed depth map.

When you take a photo using the Nokia 9 PureView, each of the five cameras automatically adopt the optimal settings for various parts of the scene. Then, synced with bespoke algorithms and advanced AI, the cameras shoot simultaneously. Finally, the images are fused into a single HDR photo with texture and detail from both the shadows and the highlights.
The device is built from machined aluminum and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor along with imaging co-processor from Light.
