Not too long ago, all we heard from the once leading phone company, Nokia, was that they were about to relaunch the iconic 3310 model.
With the use of this setup, Nokia now overtakes Samsung which at the end of past year announced the A9 which came with four cameras at the back. The Nokia 4.2 gets a second 2-megapixel camera on the back to go with the 13-megapixel camera. Also, the company explains that all the five cameras work simultaneously to capture a photo and fuse it into one photo of 12MP. HMD Global, at a press event on the sidelines of the Mobile World Congress 2019, introduced the Nokia 9 PureView to realize this. The phone has a glass back and aluminum frame.
The single rear camera lens is housed in the glossy section, while a circular fingerprint sensor sits within the lower matte section.
Let's talk about those cameras first. Two of the cameras gave RGB color sensors, and they are able to capture the vibrant colors, while the other three are monochrome and focus more on details. There is the same 5-megapixel front-facing camera though.
If you look closely, you will notice that apart from the five cameras and the LED flash, there is one more circle.
Also, there is a 3D ToF sensor. Despite being powered by a generation old chipset in the Snapdragon 845, the new flagship from Nokia has managed to create quite a buzz because of the presence of a rather odd looking five camera array at its back.More news: Brendan Rodgers verbally agrees to become Leicester City manager

The 9 PureView has the capability to shoot in RAW format, giving the user all the data to process and adjust in post-production, just like professional cameras do. Each image maintains a 12.4 dynamic range stop. In the front there is an 8Mp shooter for selfies.
The Nokia 210 Feature phones come with a 2.4-inch QVGA display and support dual SIM connectivity.
Also on Sunday, the company unveiled four other Android smartphones - "Nokia 4.2" and "Nokia 3.2" with a dedicated Google Assistant button, "Nokia 1 Plus" that runs on Android 9 Pie (Go edition) and the company's most affordable internet-enabled "Nokia 201" feature-phone. The Nokia 9 PureView is 8mm thick, and also has IP67 water- and dust-resistance rating, and it supports wireless charging.
Despite being a flagship from Nokia, there is the older Snapdragon 845 processor, and this is something we saw with the last year's Nokia 8 Sirocco as well.
Underscoring the company's growing momentum in fighting the US allegations, the telecom provider Etisalat of the United Arab Emirates, a strong USA ally in the Mideast, said it signed a deal with Huawei to deploy its 5G technology. The company reports that the Nokia 9 PureView will be offered in the only Midnight Blue color.
But, unlike many of its rivals, the Nokia 9 does not include any wide-angle lenses, nor does it have a zoom lens, or a macro lens.
