Nokia 9 PureView review

In my Nokia 9 Pureview review I take a look at the world’s first five camera smartphone. This Nokia phone is one for anyone who is loves taking photos with their smartphone and this advanced camera lets you get professional results.

Nokia 9 Pureview design


The Nokia 9 has a 5.99-inch pOLED QHD edge-to-edge 2K display. 2K is the next step up from Full HD giving you amazing visuals. The display has excellent sunlight readability and reproduces more accurate colours.

The Nokia 9 measures just 8mm thick and weighs 172g. The aluminium chassis is paired up with toughened Corning Gorilla Glass 5 to make this phone very durable. The phone has IP67 certification for dust and water resistance making it even tougher.
The phone is available in Midnight Blue.

Nokia 9 Features

The Nokia 9 packs an impressive Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and 6GB RAM. The phone can easily handle any task whether it’s gaming or multitasking. Nokia Spatial Audio is also onboard and matched up with a single speaker and smart amp.

The new trend for fingerprint readers sees them move from the back face to new in-screen fingerprint technology. Now you place your finger on the display and the phone unlocks.
The Nokia 9 has a fixed 128GB internal memory. There is plenty of room for your apps and the content stored on your old phone.

The Android 9 Pie operating system is an Android One system. This means you are guaranteed to get regular security updates for three years and software upgrades for two years.

The Android One interface has been simplified and there are no unnecessary preloaded apps that could slow down performance. You will enjoy App Actions which are shortcuts based on your typical daily routines, and of course, the Google Assistant is included.

The 3,320mAh battery in the Nokia 9 uses Adaptive Battery software to make the most of the battery reserves. Adaptive Battery learns how you use the phone and adjusts the settings to give you enough power you get through the day.

The phone offers Qi wireless charging support so you can go wireless if you own a wireless charger.

Nokia 9 PureView Camera


The camera is the real draw on this phone and will be the main reason people will want to buy this phone. There are five 12-megapixel cameras with ZEISS Optics and computational imaging technology, handled by a special imaging co-processor.


The five cameras work together to capture up to 10x more light for an improved dynamic range. This means that the shadows, highlights, and colours are more accurate. You can also capture outstanding depth of field effects.


In Depth Mode the phone can identify 1,200 layers, so you can pick out a leaf or a face in a crowd, and adjust the focus post shot. The advanced AI and bespoke algorithms let the cameras shoot simultaneously and you can then edit RAW DNG photos on the phone itself, with the five cameras having captured an accurate depth map.

Nokia has partnered with Adobe so you can download the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom app for further editing.



In Monochrome Mode you get crisper detail in black and white and there is a big difference compared to smartphones that simply convert a colour photo to black and white.

Other features include Motion Photo,  4K HDR video recording, 360-degrees sound recording through three microphones and OZO Audio tech, and Slow Motion video recording.

The Nokia 9 PureView has a 20-megapixel selfie camera with display flash. The resolution is high and you can capture a Bothie with either a picture-in-picture or a split screen format taking a shot from the front and rear cameras. You can also record Bothie videos.
