Five cameras and a million possibilities
The wait is finally over: after almost a year in the rumor mill, HMD Global unveils the much-awaited Nokia 9 PureView. Practically everyone is waiting for this phone because of its rather unusual penta rear camera setup.
Comprising of two RGB and three monochrome cameras, the Zeiss-branded setup was made in collaboration with Light, and can take photos using all five cameras at the same time. The benefits of this setup include up to 12.4 stops of dynamic range and full view depth mapping at 12-megapixels.
The Nokia 9 Pureview has a camera bump-free aluminum and glass body with an IP68 rating.

The Nokia 9 PureView will be priced at $699 (~Php 36.4k) and will be available starting March. There’s one catch, however: there will be a limited amount of devices that will be available, so once stocks run out, HMD Global will not produce any more Nokia 9 PureViews—at least for now.
