Smartphones with an inbuilt camera was a game changer. And 10 years down the line, the development of cameras in smartphones are huge, as they are giving strict competition to the DSLRs. With the advancements in the camera sensors for smartphones, the number of sensors in the same is also increasing. Dual-camera phone was a trend in 2016, and 2018 brought phones with triple-camera setup and even a four rear-camera sensor smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy A9.

In 2019, Nokia, resurrected by HMD Global, is said to be the world's first smartphone vendor to launch a phone with Penta-camera setup (5 rear camera setup). Dubbed as the Nokia 9 PureView, the smartphone details have been leaked already, but today we have the first ever promo video of the Nokia 9 PureView revealing itself in its full glory.

Leaked by the good folks of MySmartPrice, the Nokia 9 PureView is said to be unveiled in the last week of this month (January 2019). The promo video (embedded below) not only confirms the Penta-camera setup but also reveals many key features of the smartphone.

Starting with the camera setup, the 5 cameras on the Nokia 9 PureView will come with ZEISS optics. All the five rear sensors will work simultaneously and users can take advantage of it in different lighting conditions, especially low-light. With 5 cameras, Nokia is claiming that the device can capture 10 times more light than any other regular smartphone camera sensor.

Exact details of the camera sensors like megapixel count, aperture, sensor type are yet unknown, but we can expect it to be similar to the Galaxy A9. The promo video does reveal that the users will be able to adjust the depth-of-field of the photos after a shot has been taken within the Google Photos app.
In terms of the design, the 9 PureView will carry the look of the Nokia 8 Sirocco, with glass back and metal chassis. The smartphone will support Qi wireless charging and be the first Nokia phone to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

As far as the specifications are concerned, the Nokia 9 PureView will come with a 5.99-inch display of 2K resolution and HDR10 compliance, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage.

On the software front, the device will be launched under Android One scheme and run Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box with guaranteed updates for two years.

To me, the Nokia 9 PureView already looks like a promising smartphone from Nokia and if compiled properly can be the best ever camera smartphone. Nokia has been working hard on the 9 PureView since 2018, and I wish the Penta-camera setup does not turn out to be the biggest gimmick of the year.
