Under HMD Global’s stewardship, Nokia has rocketed back into relevance in the international smartphone market, combining the nostalgia for the brand, good design and championing Android One.
Nokia has a phone in every market segment and this week they will bring their latest Flagship devices the Nokia 9 PureView to Australian shelves.
We took an early look at the Nokia 9 PureView and it’s 5 lens array at MWC this year, and what we saw left us wanting more. With this week’s retail launch you’ll be able to get your hands on a Midnight Blue Nokia 9 PureView for $1099 AUD at both Harvey Norman and JB HiFi.
HMD will even bundle in a free set of their Nokia True Wireless Earbuds valued at $199 AUD.
What’s the Nokia 9 PureView packing?
Basically everything you can want. Nokia is not hiding that this is their camera focused device, with 5 x 12MP sensors split cross 2 RGB (colour), 3 Black and White, time of flight sensor and dual tone LED flash Nokia has basically put in all the camera hardware that you can fit into a phone.
Using HDR, the phone simultaneously takes 5 photos with the time of flight data and stitches those together to give you the final image. With computational photography trying to replace multi lens and to some extent HDR it will be interesting to see how Nokia’s solution holds up.
Loaded with Android One, the Nokia 9 PreView is guaranteed to get 2 years of OS and 3 years of Security updates. This upfront guarantee sets the Android One devices apart from basically everyone except Google’s Pixel phones.
Rounding out the specs is a 5.99″ P-OLED QHD notchless display, a snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, an in-display fingerprint sensor, USB-C but no headphone jack. For the full specs check out below.
