Nokia 9 Pureview’s five-camera setup promises quality over versatility


In the past six months, we’ve seen plenty of phones with three cameras, and a bunch with four cameras too. Now, Nokia has upped the ante with the launch of the world’s first phone with five rear cameras – the Nokia 9 Pureview.

But intriguingly, instead of offering a range of options for shooting pictures, the phone’s single focus is to provide top-notch image quality. So, there’s no optical zoom and no wide-angle or ultra wide-angle lenses. And maybe that’s a good thing.

Here’s what the device’s rear camera assembly contains: two 12-megapixel RGB color sensors, three 12-megapixel monochrome sensors, a Time-of-Flight sensor to measure the distance of an object from the lens, and a dual-tone LED flash. Notably, all the camera sensors are made by Zeiss and have an aperture of f/1.85.
