Nokia has also paired up with Adobe and Lightroom will come pre-installed on all PureView phones. At the event in Barcelona, the company said the phone, priced $699, is for camera enthusiasts and will be available in March, 2019. This should affect devices from HMD Global as well as smartphones from other manufacturers.

The early verdict on the Nokia 9 PureView is that it's yet another solid offering from HMD Global, and if the five camera array can deliver the photographic quality as the company has been touting, then it could have an intriguing option on the market.

Three of the camera lenses capture images in monochrome (black and white), while the other two work in color.

The Nokia 9 PureView boasts an all-glass sandwich design, with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection both on the front and rear.

Interestingly, all of the Nokia 9's cameras have the same 12-megapixel Sony image sensor sat behind them, with an aperture of f/1.8. Now Nokia 3.1 Plus Starts Getting Android 9 Pie Update.

Moving on to the most important and most anticipated feature of the phone, its quintuple camera system.

The Nokia 4.2 sports a 5.71 inch HD+ display with a resolution of 720×1520 pixels, along with a pixel density of 295ppi.

As for cameras, the rear is a single 13MP sensor with autofocus and an LED flash. HMD says that all five cameras click images simultaneously once you press the shutter and all images captured are in HDR. It can also take additional rounds of exposures to capture up to 240MP of data per photo.

The reason behind installing multiple cameras is usually to cover a wide range of focal lengths, giving the user the feeling of having a zoom-lens attached to their phones. As far as the connectivity is concerned, Nokia 9 PureView supports Dual 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5, GPS/ GLONASS, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), USB Type-C support and a 3320mAh battery which supports fast charging and QI wireless charging.

The highlight of the Nokia 9 PureView are the 5 cameras onboard here. It is also using the company's Lux Capacitor camera control chip to manage the five-camera setup since the Snapdragon 845 can not handle so many camera sensors.

The Nokia 9 PureView heads a range of smartphones announced by HMD on Sunday, including an entry-level and two mid-level handsets, all created to work with Google's Android One, which guarantees two years' of operating system upgrades.

As for the battery, the Nokia 9 PureView is said to feature 3320mAh battery capacity, which is bigger and hopefully better.
