Hands-On: Nokia 9 PureView Review: Next-Gen Cameras

HMD Global has announced a slew of phones at MWC 2019, but the spotlight is on the five-camera Nokia 9 PureView. The five cameras on the back work in unison to deliver one, supremely detailed image. You also can work with the RAW files and edit them in Adobe Lightroom for the perfect shot. Here’s what the camera is capable of, and what it’s like to use it.

HMD Global is the company that makes Nokia-branded smartphones, and the new Nokia 9 isn’t just interesting because it looks different. Unlike most smartphones with multiple cameras, the Nokia 9’s five-camera system works in unity to deliver one photo rich with information. It allows for some nifty capabilities, but it also saves the RAW images alongside the JPEGs, so you can have complete control over the look of your photographs. Sure, other phones have RAW support too — but the image quality and information from the five cameras is so good, it’s much more enjoyable editing photos on the Nokia 9.

Protoss says:

you photoghaped a fat lady on a tiny chair

Jannib Andelo Bayutas says:

Am I the only one who prefers the flash at the center of that?

Terry David says:

Best camera phone?

Mathäus Wegert says:

No SD card slot! What in the world Nokia!? With those large photo file sizes (especially RAW dng), you’re going to need a lot of space, and not having a card slot is stupid.

Cesc Fabregas says:

I really hope Nokia builds up on this and develops the Nokia 9.1 for mwc2020 with sd865 and a little more updated display design they could sell this then for 849€ I stead of 599€

Hass Moomeej says:

Ahaha – it looks like a showerhead!

Mj ajerap says:

switching to different mode on camera is kinda slow? but the bokeh is damn good

Lane Feral says:

Holy shit! No OIS?? No pre-order for me.
I’ll wait for Nokia 10 with 855 chip and 8gb ram

Allan Scott says:

This is the dogs Bollox, Nokia is back

aaro 345 says:

the depth of field nokia 9 gives due to all those 5 cameras is amazing!

S Saini says:

Pixel 3 has the 845 it, so this chip is very relevant

Kennith Rosales says:

Ls 845 was not disappointment… No one utilizes the maximum photo capability of 845 pros but nokia does that..

Mohammed Hassan says:

I’ll not buy sd 845 phone in 2019

Adrián Koníček says:

it is not 2K resolution it s some sort of wierd resolution becouse the aspect ratio is 1:2

Matthew Paul says:

Camera samples look fantastic, it’s unique, runs Android One, and is only €599, £549, $699. A steal in my opinion.

And thank god for no notch or hole punch screen design – massive short term design compromise before phones change fully in next few years.
