HMD Global, the licensee for selling Nokia phones, has introduced four new Android smartphones, including the world’s first smartphone with a unique five camera array – the Nokia 9 PureView. Other phones launched include Nokia 4.2, Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 1 Plus.
The Nokia 9 PureView features a penta-camera setup at the back, which is powered by ZEISS Optics. According to the company, the Nokia 9 PureView captures every image in HDR – five cameras simultaneously capture an image and fuse it together into one 12MP photo with great dynamic range and depth of field. Users can also capture images in the uncompressed RAW ‘DNG’ format and edit them directly on the phone itself, thanks to the partnership with Adobe Lightroom.
The Nokia 9 PureView has two colour sensors and three monochromatic sensors that give an image sharpness and detail. All five work together to collect up to 10 times the amount of light than a single colour sensor of the same type. Every image captured by Nokia 9 PureView has up to 12.4 stops of dynamic range and a full scene 12MP depth map. The depth map allows beautiful bokeh, giving you the possibility to adjust focus in Google Photos after you have taken the shot. The Nokia 9 PureView is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, 2 pOLED ‘PureDisplay’ screen, integrated Qi wireless charging and in-display fingerprint sensor. It also has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and the back.
The Nokia 4.2 features a sculpted-glass design, an all-screen display and packs in a dual-rear camera, AI innovations and runs on Android 9 Pie. The smartphone sports a 5.7-inch HD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio.
There is a fingerprint sensor on the back, and it also features AI face unlock. It has a 13MP + 2MP dual rear camera setup and a 13MP front camera.
The Nokia 3.2 sports HD+ display and two-day battery life and is powered by Android 9 Pie OS.
The Nokia 3.2 features a 6.26-inch HD+ display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 mobile platform. It comes with a single 13MP camera with flash and a 5MP front-facing camera.
The Nokia 1 Plus is a brand-new member of the Android (Go edition) smartphone family. The Nokia 1 Plus sports an 8MP primary camera on the rear and a 5MP front camera.
