HMD Global, the "home" of Nokia phones, introduced a number of smartphones at the 2019 Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain. While companies like Samsung and Huawei kickstarted their 2019 with foldable smartphones, HMD has made its intentions clear with its Nokia 9 that has seemed to carve a new benchmark in the market with as many as five rear cameras. Here are the key highlights from the event: - Nokia 9 PureView has 2K OLED display and has 6GB RAM+128GB storage.

The Nokia 9 PureView sports a ZEISS-certified five-camera setup, comprising three 12MP monochrome sensors and two 12MP RGB sensors with all sensors having an f/1.82 aperture.

As with other phones, every time you take a photo with the Nokia 9, the device captures many images - a process called bracketing - then combines them to produce the finished article.

After repeated delays, the Nokia 9 PureView has finally been revealed and it seems that with the Penta-lens phone, HMD Global is on track to revive another thing that the original Nokia phones were known for; their cameras. It comes with 2GB and 3GB RAM options coupled with 16GB or 32GB of internal storage which can be further expanded to 400GB via a microSD card. A fingerprint scanner is also on the back of the device along with the Google Assistant button on the side. The device weighs in at 6.07 oz (172 g) and is 8mm thin. Another great feature is it runs Android 9 Pie out of the box, and is an Android One phone with promised software updates for two years.

The co-processor works in the background to control white balance and exposure, but it has also been revealed that the device uses everything from the CPU, GPU to DSP for faster noise reduction and low power usage.

Like most flagships of late, the Nokia 9 is a glass sandwich wrapped around an aluminum frame. The Nokia 9 itself proves to be a very well balanced smartphone and fit for photography enthusiasts breaking new barriers of innovation. Some are even put off by the device's design.

"It's a strong heritage brand for HMD Global to use alongside this flagship Nokia Mobile smartphone", he commented on Twitter. Its specs are not as impressive as the PureView, but it only rings in at $99 Dollars.

The front of the phone is dominated by 5.45 inch IPS LCD display in 18:9 aspect ratio.

Sadly one of the less-popular smartphone trends of recent years has been borrowed by the Nokia 9 PureView.

While those specs put it firmly in the mid-range category, you do get some modern perks. It is unclear when the device will be available for sale in the United States, but it will cost $699 Dollars.
