Speaking at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Guo Ping said he had noticed President Trump's tweets saying the U.S. should not "be lagging behind" in adopting 5G and that he agrees with Trump's message.

Each of the lenses is triggered when a photo is taken and internal software melds those five images into one, offering phone-based photographers the ability to create the out-of-focus "bokeh" effects that not long ago were only possible through the use of traditional cameras with bulky lenses. With regards to smartphones, the Nokia model is famed for two essential qualities: excessive-readability shows, and superior imaging capabilities.

In fact, HMD Global which now runs the Nokia business, is boasting that all five cameras work together to collect up to 10-times the amount of light than a single colour sensor of the same type. Nokia 9 PureView's two colour sensors and three monochromatic sensors give sharpness and detail.

HMD Global now sells Nokia phones in partnership with Nokia and Foxconn. Like we said above, it has as many as five cameras at the back along with a dedicated autofocus sensor and LED flash. The phone also features a front-facing camera for selfies. It has 3,320mAh battery with wireless charging support. Even though a high-end chip, Snapdragon 845 is one generation old processor.

The Nokia 9 PureView is a premium smartphone coming with a price tag of USD$699 (roughly UGX2.6 million). The device features a 5.45-inch FWVGA+ IPS touchscreen display and has onboard storage of 8GB which could be extended further up to a maximum of 128GB via microSD card slot.

Over the last few years, we've seen smartphones begin to include multiple cameras on their flagship phones. We are yet to see if the camera is the only selling point here or will the smartphone shine, putting others to shame?


Front camera- It has a 20-megapixel front camera.

If you choose to purchase this phone, Android 9 Pie straight out of the box paired with the EMUI 9 overlay is to be expected.

Naturally, as a Nokia flagship, the smartphone comes crafted from a block of series 6000 aluminium, which comes IP67 certified but lacks a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack.

So, does the penta-camera module on the Nokia 9 PureView look impressive to you?

As we have already mentioned the specifications of Nokia PureView above, among the other specifications, the phone sports a 5.99-inch Quad-HD+ (1440×2960 pixels) POLED screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio and an in-display fingerprint sensor.
