It’s official, HMD Global will release the Nokia 9 PureView smartphone on March 3rd in the US, priced at $599. What sets this handset apart from others announced at Mobile World Congress is its rear penta-camera setup with ZEISS optics. Two of those five shoot RGB, while the others monochrome. How does it work? When you snap a photo, each of the five cameras shoots a different exposure, and then all that information is combined into a final shot, and since each lens automatically adjusts the exposure across the scene—as opposed to single focal point—you’ll get a wide dynamic range, as well as enhanced detail. Plus, you can also shoot RAW images,capture 4K HDR video, and there’s even a 20MP front-facing camera. Read more for another video and additional information.
Other features include an edge-to-edge 5.99″ 2K OLED display, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, an under-screen fingerprint sensor, Qi wireless charging, USB-C connectivity, and a bespoke Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU. To snag this phone at $599, you’ll have to purchase one by March 11th, otherwise the price goes back up to the normal MSRP of $699 afterwards.
