Nokia announces the Nokia 9 Pureview with the first world’s first penta-lens

Nokia announced the Nokia 9 Pureview at this years MWC, Nokia has confirmed that the Nokia 9 PureView is available to pre-order immediately and will go on sale 21st March for £549. It will be available in Midnight Blue.

The Nokia 9 PureView is the world’s first Penta-lens cameraphone, with five 12Mp cameras at the rear. It’s kind of odd-looking as a result, but if photography is your bag it could be something special.

With two of the five are RGB lenses, and the other three Monochrome, each with an f/1.8 aperture and able to capture 1.25um pixels. All five are used in every shot, with the results stitched together to create what should be one phenomenal-looking and highly detailed image. It’s in essence what Google Pixel phones do with a single lens, but by using five lenses the processing is much faster.

Native black-and-white shots can be achieved with the trio of mono lenses, which Nokia says will produce sharper, richer images. And with all five in use the Nokia 9 PureView is able to offer up to 1200 layers of depth for the best-looking bokeh (blurred background) shots around.

Partnering not only with Zeiss but also Adobe for the Nokia 9, you can use Lightroom to edit images shot on the phone, including RAW-format pics.

Nokia gets it half-right with the design, fitting a 5.99in Quad-HD+ plastic OLED panel that supports HDR10. It’s free from any kind of notch and is protected with Gorilla Glass 5 front and back.

The Nokia 9 PureView is fitted with a 3,320mAh battery, which fast-charges over USB-C or can charge wirelessly at up to 10W. Impressively the case is just 8mm thick, and there’s no camera bump in sight, despite the huge amount of photography tech inside.
