After months full of leaks, the Nokia 9 PureView was finally introduced. The launch took place minutes ago at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. HMD Global has now brought to light the brand's new high-end and the five cameras at its rear are confirmed.
The device, however, presents little news compared to what was expected. We already know that there are few surprises these days, but I had hoped that the rumor of coming equipped with the Snapdragon 845 was a lie. I can already say that it is not.
So the new high-end Nokia is (almost) all that is required for a high end smartphone. Well built (glass front back) and metal at the ends. At the front we have a 5.99 inch OLED display with HDR10 and a respectable resolution of 2880×1440 QHD +.
Nokia 9 PureView Has On-Screen Biometric Sensor
Nokia, mindful of what the competition is doing, has not been left behind. The fingerprint sensor is built into the screen, but it also gives you the possibility to unlock the device with your face.
The major reason for dissatisfaction with this device is the choice over the processor. As expected, Nokia brings us a dated Snapdragon 845, as all tops are now being launched with the 855. Still, we have forgiven Nokia a little for the price at which the handset will be launched. .
In fact, Nokia 9 PureView will be launched in one color only – the Midnight Blue. Plus, it will only come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage that you can expand.
The highlight of the device is its five cameras
The cameras are the most interesting in the device. We are talking about five cameras with 12 MP at the rear, all with Zeis lens with f / 1.8 aperture. Two of them are RGB and three monochrome. In addition, we have a sixth camera with a ToF lens.
Undeniably, we do not have here the most fancy modes of fashion. They all have a 28mm focal range on their lenses, for example. There are no wide-angles or telephoto, but great image quality is expected in these photos.
How will the cameras in Nokia 9 work?
How can Nokia do this work? Thanks to the combination of images from the five cameras for a single image with optimal dynamic range. However, we will better dissect in future articles the full potential of these cameras. In the video field, you will only be able to shoot 4K at 30fps.
In terms of front camera, we will have 20 MP in a f / 1.8 aperture camera. Plus, you can count on quality photos in low light thanks to the Tetracell system.
The Nokia 9 will come with Android Pie, 3320mAh battery and fast charge 3.0. Also, you don't have a 3.5mm jack input on this model. The price is quite encouraging, at $ 699. While not a perfect high end, if the quality of the cameras warrants it, it may be a smartphone to consider.
