After months of waiting, HMD seems to have finally answered the call. Nokia's parent finally releases a true flagship phone – one that's not just an improved version of a previous cell phone, and actually brings something new to the table. This phone is the Nokia 9 PureView.
The Nokia 9 PureView took a long time to come. Since the beginning of 2018, a year after HMD began publishing devices with Android devices under the name of Nokia, rumor has it. Although its unique feature delayed publication (which led to the use of an older SoC), the overall package is a strong competitor in early 2019, despite being behind the curve. With its enhanced camera, well-built design and other extras, this may be the phone Nokia was able to bring back into the hands of former fans.

Things get interesting here: The Nokia 9 PureView has a total of five rear cameras. Each camera has essentially the same lens, but two of the image sensors behind it are RGB, while the other three are monochrome. Each time you take a picture, all five cameras take a picture. These images are then assembled into a highly detailed 12 MP photo.
However, if you choose RAW footage, this final image is actually between 60 and 240 MP. With this photo, you can use Adobe Lightroom (co-authored with the HMD to provide the free version for Nokia 9 PureView users) to edit the photos with the same tools you find on a computer. Each lens is optimized by ZEISS for additional image quality.
