Nokia, the legendary Finnish brand has been picking up steam under the umbrella of HMD global. This time the company has gone all the way with 5 cameras on Nokia 9 all targeted at improving lowlight performance. Apart from the outrageous take on cameras, let’s get to know other features it has to offer.
Nokia 9 PureView: The Exciting Part
The “Duh” part to be excited about this phone would be its 5 cameras. Like other Nokia smartphones, this one is also powered by Zeiss optics. The cameras along with the flash and TOF sensor are arranged like a pentagon. Out of the lot, you get three 12MP monochrome cameras, two 12MP RGB cameras, all with f/1.8 aperture.
Interestingly, they don’t protrude out. Apart from the auto computational photography mode, you could also dive into the pro mode that captures in RAW DNG format. Upfront, you get a 20 MP selfie snapper.
