There are five good reasons to watch the official new product video for the Nokia 9 PureView

Earlier today, HMD Global introduced the Nokia 9 PureView. The handset is the first ever to feature a penta-camera setup in back. All five use Zeiss optics, two are RGB shooters while the remaining three are monochrome. This is the first time that HMD has used the PureView branding since it purchased the name from Microsoft last August. It was first used on 2012's Nokia 808 PureView, a handset that was powered by Symbian.

HMD has released its official new product video for the Nokia 9 PureView, and as you might imagine, it mentions the rear penta-camera setup right off the bat. It also notes that the phone has the ability to snap quality photos in both dark and bright lighting conditions. It also allows the user to change the focus of a picture after the photograph is processed, and combines images from each lens for High Dynamic Range (HDR) images.

The phone, which as an Android One device will be quick to receive updates from Google, is coming to the U.S. next month. Pre-orders are being taken right now, and the phone will cost $699. That is a great price for a flagship phone, but to be fair, it carries last year's Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform under the hood. Still, if photography is your thing, you might want to see whether Nokia's new tag line, "Explore every detail," is a valid comment about the photos snapped with the first penta-camera phone.

Nokia is more promising than apple this year. They should work on their shipping schedules as they tend to be late to arrive after launching dates. I hope their sd855 phone will also be awesome (if they release one.)

It’s been rumored that they are releasing an SD855/5G version of the Nokia 9 Pureview. Here’s to hoping that pans out.

Well that's 2019 flagship level if it materialized. If they sell it at $750 after tax with sd card expansion and big battery I will consider buying it. Still have my nokia 7 plus for heavy work use and it never gave me problems.

I enjoyed the HMD event today. And while the Nokia 9 Pureview stole the show, I was especially excited about the information revealed to us at the event, like HMD now bring the #1 feature phone vendor globally, the fact that HMD has become a top 5 brand in many parts of the world, including parts of Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and more. I was especially pleased by the fact that it was said that HMD has updated more of its smartphone portfolio to Android Pie (that’s eligible) than anyone other smartphone vendor (that has more than 3 phones).

Nokia been working the woods like a Cobra, watching what the so called leaders are doing. I have a feeling they have more stuff probably even better than this. The Android One, that's great.
