Yesterday, Nokia officially introduced the brand’s 2019 flagship. Most noticable feature of the Nokia 9 Pureview is the hexagon shaped pattern on the back that houses no less than five cameras.
Nokia again partnered with Zeiss and employs five identical optical setups with 28mm FL (equivalent) and F1.8 each. Two cameras feature a sensor with a traditional Bayer array for color photos, three more are purely monchromatic. Besides enhancing the dynamic range, the additional cameras obtain fine grained depth information that is stored together with the actual imaging data.
The resulting RAW DNGs can be edited on the phone using Adobe’s Lightroom Mobile or Google Photos.
Working in perfect unison, the five 12 MP cameras collect up to 10 times more light than a single smartphone camera color sensor. The results: photos with superb dynamic range that capture detail and texture from both the highlights and shadows, plus incredible depth-of-field and vibrant, truest-to-life color.
Each of the five cameras automatically adopt the optimal settings for various parts of the scene. Then, synced with bespoke algorithms and advanced AI, the cameras shoot simultaneously. Finally, the images are fused into a single HDR photo with texture and detail from both the shadows and the highlights.
Nokia have published a bunch of sample images that illustrate the enourmous dynamic range of around 12 stops:

Smartphone cameras that use the traditional dual camera setup can distinguish ten layers of depth information; the Nokia achieves 1.200 which permits very fine grained control over the focus point in post processing.

Other specs are on last year’s flagship level: Snapdragon 845, 6 GB RAM / 128 GB ROM (not expandable), 5.99″ P-OLED display with 1.440 x 2.880 px., Quick Charge and wireless charging, IP 67 protection, Android One. Drawbacks are the fairly small battery (3.300mAh) and missing headphone jack.
The Nokia 9 Pureview will come to stores in Spring 2019. MSRP is $699,– US.

Camera Creativ can recommend these digital cameras from personal experience. They all provide the best value in their respective category.
Large 1" sensor and 10x Leica lens make the ZS100 / TZ101 the perfect travel zoom.
4K Video, panos and a 60x zoom, combined with Pannys Post Focus in a portable package.
Grading up from a smartphone or compact? Then the Rebel T6 / 1300D might be for you.
APS-C DSLR for discriminating amateurs. With articulated screen and dedicated microphone port.
Best-selling mirrorless ILC with APS-C sized sensor and speedy AF. Currently at bargain prices.
APS-C ILC with 4K video, sensible feature set and nice EVF. Vast selection of lenses via adapter.
First gen. RX100 with 4x Zeiss lens. Still our standing recommendation, especially when on offer.
Posh compact with 1" sensor and very bright 4x zoom. Pocketable and with good manual controls.
Best feature and sensor set in any outdoor camera bar none, combined with clever software.
New in 2018 with 4K 60p support and improved stabilizer. Still the mother of all action cams.
