What’s better than a phone with one, two, three, or four cameras? According to Nokia, that’s a smartphone with five cameras, which is exactly what the upcoming PureView 9 has.
This beast of a smartphone is all about taking beautiful photos, and it actually is scheduled to release sooner than later, as Nokia has just announced a U.S. release date of March 3, which is just a few short days away.
Nokia PureView 9 Specs and Features
Obviously, the thing that really makes the PureView 9 stand out is the array of cameras that are designed to offer a level of depth we don’t normally see from a smartphone. Each of the five cameras features a 12-megapixel resolution and an f/1.8 aperture. Two of the cameras shoot color images and three shoot in monochrome. They all combine to offer larger dynamic range and more depth than typical phone cameras.
Outside of the cameras, the phone features pretty solid specs. There’s a 5.99-inch OLED screen with a 2K resolution and HDR 10 support. Essentially, apps, videos, and images should look quite sharp on Nokia’s upcoming high-end phone.
Powering the device is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip (which is not the most recent chip, as quite a few flagship phones are relying on the newer 855) and 6GB of RAM. The phone comes with 128GB of storage, which is pretty standard for most higher-end phones nowadays.
