"Today we use our heritage of innovation to take a bold step - pioneering a truly innovative approach to imaging with the Nokia 9 PureView", said Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global. As such, it may seem like a small detail, but it shows that HMD Global is more concerned with the photographic elements of the device than it is the display.
The Nokia 9 PureView has a total of six cameras, a front facing 20 MP sensor for selfies alongside five 12 MP f/1.8 cameras on the rear. Flip the phone over and you'll find a five-camera array that sits flush with the Gorilla Glass 5 back plate. They made waves with their Light L16 camera, which featured 16 cameras. The five cameras work to collect between 60 to 240MP of data from the photo to churn it in to a single 12MP photo. Then the chip transfers the "RAW" information utilizing two MIPI transmitters to a number for additional processing.
Samsung and Huawei may have three cameras crammed into their phones but Nokia is taking things a step further. It's charging system supports, fast battery charging of 18W (Quick Charge 3.0), as well as fast wireless charging 10W. Powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor, the Nokia 9 isn't the most powerful smartphone you'd find in 2019 but with quality, quirks to go along the phone proves to be a strong contender in the modern smartphone space.
The first fruits of that technology will be in the form of the Nokia 9 PureView.
The Nokia 9 PureView will retail at an average price of $699 and start shipping in March. Part of Google's Android One programme, the Nokia 9 PureView's biggest highlight is its penta-lens camera setup present on the back of the smartphone.More news: Kelly Released From Jail After Posting Bail

Naturally, as a Nokia flagship, the smartphone comes crafted from a block of series 6000 aluminium, which comes IP67 certified but lacks a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack.
Another area where the Nokia 9 excels - at least in theory - is with the time-of-flight sensor, also known as a 3D depth sensor.
It has a 5.45-inch IPS display with an aspect ratio rated at 18:9 and comes with support for Google Go apps.
