It's tough to say which smartphone was the true star of Mobile World Congress 2019, but most would agree the Nokia 9 PureView is a major contender. Do you think HMD Global killed it with this one or five cameras on the rear of a smartphone is absolutely unnecessary and the company went overboard? For starters, you can get the Nokia 9 PureView for as low as $549.99 at Best Buy, with the only requirement being that you need to activate the device on a new line of service with AT&T being your carrier of choice.
Nokia 9 PureView has received its first software update on the same day of its first sale.
The five lenses were made with ZEISS optics, a trusted brand in the professional camera world. The main highlight of the device is its 5-camera setup on the back, these five 12 MP cameras can collect up to 10 times more light when compared to a single camera color sensor in regular smartphones.
Still talking about good work, it's a smart move by HMD Global to release the Nokia 9 at a time when cameras seem to be the "in-thing" in the smartphone ecosystem. Impressively the case is just 8mm thick, and there's no camera bump in sight, despite the huge amount of photography tech inside. Using depth mode, Nokia 9 PureView can identify over 1,200 layers which it uses to build a detailed depth map. You can also shoot RAW photos, film in 4K HDR, and if that is not enough, then you can use the 20 MP selfie camera.
