This is the First Smartphone in the World to have a 5-Camera System.

Now, for those who don’t care about the budget devices launched by HMD Global:

The company recently unveiled its latest high-end smartphone – the Nokia 9 PureView, the first smartphone in the world to have a 5-camera system on the rear. In other words, it’s the world’s first penta-camera smartphone


The device comes in a glass sandwich design, with Gorilla Glass 5 covering the front 5.99-inch PureDisplay and 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5 covering the back:

Notice the absence of a notch or punch hole?

Strange, right?

Anyway, at the back, we have two 12MP f/1.8 color sensors (RGB), and three 12MP f/1.8 monochrome sensors, that combined can capture 10 times more light than standard RGB sensors, and guys, all 5 cameras work together in creating a single shot.

That is not all, though. Every image captured by 9 PureView has 12.4 stops of dynamic range and a full scene 12MP depth map, plus you get the ability to save your pictures in an uncompressed RAW DNG format.

The Nokia 9 PureView will also allow you to switch to the three monochrome sensors and shoot black and white photos with the “native monochrome mode”.


As for the specs, well here you go:

    WE have been complaining that 3ple camera looks weird,
    I can say that penta camera is weirthering.
    As usual Nokia specs is cool, price is high by just imagine that I turn the back camera, and an old woman sees it, IT CAN SEND HER TO HER GRAVE OO.
