HMD Global, the company that holds the licence to sell and manufacture Nokia smartphones, has introduced its new flagship smartphone at MWC 2019, according to The Times of India.
HMD Global’s all-new Nokia 9 PureView will come with five cameras set up in array at the back.
Each of the five cameras will have the same 12-megapixel sensors, all with Zeiss lenses.
Two cameras use a red-green-and-blue (RGB) sensor to capture colour, while the other three cameras capture monochrome data.
Each image captured with the device is HDR with up to 12.4 stops of dynamic range and comes with Adobe Lightroom pre-installed on the phone.
The editing tool will allow users to produce images with up to 240-megapixel resolution.
The Nokia 9 will also include a “tripod mode” which allows users to hold a hand a night shot for up to 10 seconds, similar to the Pixel 3XL or Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro.
There’s also a 5.99-inch QHD+ pOLED Nokia PureDisplay with 18:9 aspect ratio.
The phone itself is made out of 6000 series aluminium and has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and has an IP67 rating which makes it water and dust resistant.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor
The Nokia 9 PureView is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor which is packed with 8GB of RAM and has up to 128GB storage.
The smartphone will also have a 3320mAh battery that supports fast and QI wireless charging.
Furthermore, the phone will also include an in-display fingerprint face sensor and a face unlock mechanism via the phone’s front camera.
Analyst Ben Wood said Nokia’s phone was attracting a “huge amount of interest” at the event in Barcelona.
“It’s a strong heritage brand for HMD Global to use alongside this flagship Nokia Mobile smartphone,” he commented on Twitter.
Release date and price
The phone will, however, only be available in one colour, the midnight blue, at $699 (£534) and will go on sale in March.
HMD also launched four other devices. These include Nokia One Plus, Nokia 3, Nokia 4 and Nokia 210.
