Mobile News: Nokia’s groundbreaking penta-camera smartphone promises
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Nokia?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#Nokialt;/agt;–B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Nokia
9 PureView. After months of rumor and hopeful speculation, Nokia
officially debuted its highly anticipated penta-lens camera, the Nokia
9 PureView, at Mobile World Congress 2019. Yes, you read that
correctly. Penta, as in five. Skeptics might view this record-breaking
number of lenses as something of a gimmick, but early indications are
that this innovative setup can produce some of the sharpest, most
detailed images available from a smartphone today.

Apart from the total number of lenses, what separates the Nokia
9 PureView from other multi-camera setups is the fact that all five
cameras shoot the same number of megapixels (12) and have the same
aperture (f/1.8). Two of those five shoot RGB, while the other three are
monochrome. The general idea is that when you snap a photo, each of the
five cameras shoots a different exposure, and then all that information
is merged into a final, highly-detailed shot. Because each camera
automatically adjusts the exposure across the scene—as opposed to single
focal point—you’ll get a wide dynamic range, as well as enhanced detail
in sunlight and shadow areas. Ultra-detailed images aren’t the only
benefit of the PureView’s penta-camera system. It also lets you shoot
RAW images, can capture 4K HDR video, and features a 20MP front-facing
camera. Not to mention the entire penta-camera system was made with
ZEISS optics, so you get one of the most trusted names in the camera
world backing it.
Revolutionary camera setup aside, the Nokia 9 PureView offers a lot of
flagship-worthy specs, including an edge-to-edge 6-inch 2K display, 6GB
of RAM with 128GB of storage, and a bespoke Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU.
Additional features, such as nifty under-screen fingerprint sensor, Qi
wireless charging, and USB-C port prove the PureView was designed with
everyone in mind, not just pro photographers.
