HMD Global announced Nokia 9 PureView – after 6 months delay to develop the software of the five cameras on the device. The announcement was made at the MWC event along with several new mobile phones. The main feature of the smartphone is the 5MP 12MP camera (two RGB and three monochrome lenses) to collect up to 10 times the amount of light of a sensor, of course with ZEISS Optics lenses.
The mobile was developed with the US Light company to shoot HDR photos using five cameras at the same time. The cameras pull up to 12.4 stops dynamic range for a full depth background information. The information collected is merged into a 12MP photo with excellent dynamic range and depth of field. The photo can then be processed with the data gathered.
It is capable of photographing 60 megapixel images in burst mode and can process up to 240 megapixel data.
It also has the ability to capture images in non-compressed RAW “DNG” format and edit them directly into the phone with Adobe Lightroom and Native black-and-white photography. It also has a 20 MP camera in front.
The company stated that:
“Each 12MP JPG image can benefit from outstanding detail in areas of both bright sunlight and dark shadows at the same time with incredible texture. The depth map allows for beautiful bokeh, giving you the opportunity to adjust focus in Google Photos after you take the shot “
