Going by the possible promo video that surfaced while 2018 was winding down, HMD's racing for the lead in the "how many cameras can you fit on the back of a phone" competition with its upcoming Nokia 9 PureView quintuple-camera design. The current leaders among flagships are and with three rear cameras.
The video, as posted by MySmartPrice, highlights Nokia's use of the circular five-camera array for producing better low-light photos (by combining the five using multishot HDR) and better detail (by combining the images from all). Nokia continues its tradition of incorporating Zeiss lenses, as well.
The phone appears to follow in the footsteps of the 2018; it's got a similar design, cameras notwithstanding, and carries on the tradition, with the same 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
It's a little bigger, though, with a new 2K (likely 2,048x1,080) "PureDisplay" just a hair under 6 inches and a boost to the newerprocessing platform and Android 9 Pie. Plus, it gains the latest buzzy features, like Qi wireless charging and an underscreen fingerprint sensor. And it looks like the company's at least scaling back on the use of Nokia's own camera app, since the video highlights features of the stock Android camera app, including post-shot focus adjustment.
We reached out to HMD/Nokia for comment but didn't immediately hear back.
