Nokia 9 PureView : 5 Rear cameras for perfect shots

The Nokia 9 Pure View sported the two 5 rear cameras that all have the same sensor, no zoom and no wide angle but at the end how to take pictures? The shots are all incredible and show the power of work done by Nokia. What is the new camera phone?

The Nokia 9 Pure View was presented a few weeks ago and is the first smartphone in the world with 5 rear cameras. If the design of the top of the range of Nokia is not the best, certainly the 5 rear sensors, are the real added value of this new device of the Finnish house that then returns in the world with a top device in all, especially in the photographic industry.

The focus of this article will investigate exactly how the 5 sensors of the Nokia 9 Pure View are used.

What are the 5 cameras of the Nokia 9 for?

HMD Global/Nokia in collaboration with Zeiss have created a mega photographic body even 5 rear sensors and in this article we will try to explain what they really need and how they take photos with some shots.

Here’s what the 5 cameras of Nokia 9 will be used for:

  1. Normal lens
  2. Wide-angle lens
  3. Telephoto
  4. Monochromatic lens
  5. RGB lens


The set of these sensors therefore allows to have at the software level different interesting features, primarily the artificial intelligence to interact with the outside world and then to create particular photographs with increasingly elaborate effects and depths.

On the back of the Nokia 9 Pure View there are 5 12-megapixel sensors, with Zeiss f/1.8 lenses and two of which are RGB and the other three are monochromatic Sony, all with a 28mm focal length and all are used to take a unique photo.

The partnership with Adobe, to integrate Lightroom software, may have prompted the Finnish company to create a unique device of its kind. Speaking of focal, the result is comparable to a high-end compact with fixed optics, and Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, explains how all the Nokia 9 Pure View cameras work.

Each photosensor is controlled by the software to take pictures each with different shutter speed, so you combine all the photos of 60 megapixels, and merge into a single 18 megapixel (5000 x 3741 resolution).

The images are acquired in RAW format, which is then converted into DNG format created by the image processor, with a dynamic range of 12 stops for each sensor, thus obtaining a clean, 12 megapixel shot without noise.

Then there is the ToF sensor that is used to create a depth map that is expanded using the other sensors increasing accuracy even at a useful distance of 40 meters, creating many slightly blurred photos, which are then merged creating the image perfect.

The stabilization is not optical, this because thanks to monochromatic sensors, which are able to capture more light, and therefore you do not need to have a stabilized lens, and with the space saved by the stabilizer, the rooms are flush with the back without any protrusion. Soon we will find in the Lightroom the profiles of the lenses of the Nokia 9, so as to correct the photos as happens with normal SLRs.

Also analyzing the video, the resolution reaches 4K at 30fps with only one central camera, but the explanation of Nokia was to provide a product created for photography, but that still defends itself very well.
