Nokia 9 PureView has over 5 cameras to its back and this is not surprising in a competitive race where Huawei has a foldable Mate X and Samsung boasts with a Galaxy fold. The smartphone is exhibited at the Mobile World Congress and with a closer look at its inbuilt features, its more like a revamp of the Nokia 8.1 and 7.1 with a forest of back cameras.
What the 5 Nokia 9 PureView cameras do
In 2018, the smartphones trend was surrounded by dual and trio camera smartphones. Well, its 2019 and Nokia has changed the trend to 5 cameras at a time when the Galaxy fold holds 6 cameras as the Mate X poses with 4 on 1 single device. Well, all 5 Nokia cameras have different features/capabilities and these are some of them.
First of all, the 5 cameras are Zeis camera lenses and they appear like a ring of 7. Three of these are 12 MP monochrome cameras and the two are 12MP RGB cameras. Interestingly all 5 cameras have an f1.8 aperture and 28mm focal diameter as the rest 2 camera like pots feature a spot flash and a time of flight sensor.
Basically, the Nokia camera is not fully designed for zoom but are meant to capture full detail for HDR and depth of field for maximum bokeh in captured photos. If you’re to clearly focus on the photos taken by the phone cameras, you may closely compare them to those of a fantastic $1000 DSLR.
