1. Camera

The camera on Nokia Pureview 9 undoubtedly makes it one of the best phones of 2019. It features 5 rear-view cameras, each 12 MP with f/1.82 apertures. A sixth ToF camera adds more depth to pictures. The phone has 2 full-colour sensors, 3 monochrome sensors, and dual-tone LED flash.

Nokia 9’s unique camera configuration uses artificial intelligence and algorithms to fuse 5 images into one. However, using the camera does take a toll on the battery. RAW photos can run into file sizes upwards of 6 GB and even JPG images can take up to 10 seconds to save.

Review

The camera system on Nokia 9 Pureview is aimed at photography hobbyist who want to take high-end camera quality pictures on a phone. While the RAW pictures are not necessarily enough to leave one awe-struck, a little editing in Adobe Lightroom can enhance images. The ability to capture the field of depth is also vital for someone serious about photography.

Priced at Rs. 49,999, Nokia 9 Pureview has an average battery life, but its display really gives it a boost. Overall, this phone is the best for those who are primarily interested in the camera.
