Nokia 9 Pureview

HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announces that the multi award-winning Nokia 9 PureView is coming to India. Nokia 9 PureView is the world’s first five camera array with ZEISS Optics that puts next generation computational imaging technology into the hands of photography enthusiasts. Every picture taken with this smartphone is HDR. All five cameras work together simultaneously to capture your image and the Nokia 9 PureView fuses it together into one 12MP photo with outstanding dynamic range and unparalleled depth of field.

World’s first 5 camera array smartphone

The Nokia 9 PureView features the world’s first five camera array system with ZEISS Optics. It has two colour sensors for accurate vibrant colour images and three monochromatic sensors which give sharpness and detail. All five sensors work together to collect up to 10-times the amount of light than a single sensor[i] of the same type.

Every shot taken by the Nokia 9 PureView uses all five cameras to capture at least 60MP of imaging data. To process and fuse the images Nokia 9 PureView has maximised the heterogenous computing architecture of the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ mobile platform assigning tasks across ISP, DSP, GPU and CPU. Featuring a dedicated imaging co-processor that individually adjusts exposure and white balance on each camera across the scene, the Nokia 9 PureView gives you a glimpse into the future of smartphone photography.
