It’s been less than a month since Finnish phone maker Nokia announced its 2019 flagship device, the Nokia 9 PureView. The phone, if you recall, was announced during MWC 2019 at Barcelona where Nokia also announced a couple of other devices. Anyway, the reason you’re reading about the Nokia 9 PureView once again today is that we have received clear indications that the company is about the launch the device in India soon. Nokia’s official Facebook page for India recently uploaded a video showcasing the imaging capabilities of the Nokia 9. This could very well mean that the handset is about to be officially launched in the country. You can watch the said video by clicking the following link. The Nokia 9 PureView is one of the most talked about handsets to come from the Nokia stables of late. This is largely due to the five-camera setup that its sports at the rear. Let us now take a quick look at the key specifications and features of the Nokia 9 PureView.
Nokia 9 PureView: Specifications, features
The Nokia 9 PureView, in typical Nokia fashion, uses last year’s flagship SoC from Qualcomm – the Snapdragon 845. The phone is offered in a single variant that ships with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The display used on the Nokia 9 PureView is a pOLED panel that measures 5.99-inches across. This panel has a resolution of 2880 × 1440 pixels and uses Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for added durability. The handset also happens to be IP67 certified for water and dust resistance. The handset gets a large 3320 mAh battery with support for Qi wireless charging. The Nokia 9 PureView is also the first Nokia to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. Like many new flagship class devices, the Nokia 9 PureView does not come with a 3.5mm audio jack. What you do get is an adapter that connects to the USB Type-C port for audio. The Nokia 9 PureView runs the latest stable version of Android 9 Pie and will also receive priority updates for the foreseeable future.
Nokia 9 PureView: Camera specifications
The Nokia 9 PureView gets a penta camera array at the rear. All the lenses use ZEISS optics with an aperture of f/1.8 and use 12-megapixel sensors. Three of the five sensors are dedicated to monochrome imaging while the other two sensors collect RGB data. Nokia claims that the Nokia 9 PureView will be able to capture excellent monochrome shots. The five sensor array lets the camera capture 10-times the amount of light a single sensor setup does and for the same reason, promises excellent low light imaging capability. Even daytime images should turn out excellent with great dynamic range. The phone also comes with a dedicated imaging co-processor that is more than capable of processing large amounts of data sent to it by all the five sensors on the device. The handset also gets a 20-megapixel front facing camera from selfies and video calling. As expected of an imaging-centric device, the Nokia 9 PureView can also capture RAW images in the DNG format that can be edited using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
