Nokia 9 Pureview: 5-lens camera to seduce photographers
By Adeline Belluz 2019-05-25 934 0
For some time now, smartphone manufacturers have been competing for the one that will offer the most photo sensors on the same device. And it is Nokia that wins this competition, with its Nokia 9 Pureview, which features five sensors in the back (plus one on the front of the phone). A record number for a smartphone accessible to the general public.
But some phones prove that the number of photo sensors is not enough to take beautiful pictures, because image software processing plays an extremely important role. What about the Nokia 9 Pureview in all this? Well, it's a smartphone that combines a large number of sensors with a special image processing that should appeal to photography enthusiasts.
5 sensors.... for what?
Placing five photo sensors in the back of the Pureview is Nokia's crazy bet. While the Finnish brand generally plays it down in terms of design and functionality, this Nokia 9 Pureview appears as a UFO in Nokia's range. On the paper, there are five identical 12 megapixel sensors on the back of the phone, arranged in the shape of a hexagon and without any protrusion.
It is in use that these five sensors differ: two of them capture color shades, the other three are monochrome and focus on the lights and details of the shot. Each of the five photo sensors captures an image with slightly different settings. The whole thing is then processed by a chip dedicated to photography.
According to Nokia, with its five photo sensors, the Nokia 9 Pureview can capture 10 times more information than a smartphone with a simple photo sensor.
And for what results?
Now let's get down to practice: how is the Nokia 9 Pureview doing in pictures? At a time when many devices artificially increase the contrast of photos to attract attention to social networks, Nokia has chosen to offer content that is true to reality. The colours are accurate and the shots have a lot of detail. An aesthetic choice that will appeal to lovers of photography and retouching.
Indeed, the Nokia 9 Pureview allows you to save your photos in RAW format. A file format that offers much more freedom for image post-processing, on editing software such as Photoshop or even directly on your smartphone with Adobe Lightroom. This last application is also pre-installed on the phone.
Fall in love with the Nokia 9 Pureview
Whether you are already experienced photographers or just want to professionalize your photography practice, this Nokia 9 Pureview seems the perfect choice for photo lovers. Of course, this smartphone is not just a simple camera, it has other qualities (AMOLED screen, pure Android interface, high-end technical sheet) that you can all find in our complete test.
Its price is one of its qualities, as it is offered at a price of 699 euros. This is relatively low when compared to other high-end smartphones recently released. A little bonus if you buy the Nokia 9 Pureview on the FNAC website: it comes with Nokia wireless headsets that are usually sold for around 150 euros.
