On the evening of February 24th, Beijing time, HMD Global officially released Nokia 9 PureView at MWC 2019.
As the highest-end flagship machine of HMD Global at this stage, Nokia 9 PureView not only has 5 rear-facing cameras that are “unforgettable”, but also its hardware specifications and product design capabilities reflect HMD Global's impressive research and development capabilities.
The approximate specifications of the Nokia 9 Pure View are as follows:
After the press conference, many foreign media also took the experience of Nokia 9 PureView. If you are interested in this phone, then let's take a look at how the foreign media evaluates this 5-photo "monster".
Double-sided glass and metal middle frame, amazing and light
In addition to the "scrubbing" design of the camera, flash and ToF sensor on the back of the phone, the reserved border on the top and bottom of the Nokia 9 PureView screen and the double-sided glass and metal middle frame design did not make it a flagship machine. In fact, it is exceptionally outstanding. Instead, it makes people feel more like a smartphone released before the first half of 2018.

But foreign mediaAndroid AuthorityAfter editing the Nokia 9 PureView, the editors were pretty good. He said:
The Nokia 9 PureView is incredibly light, and the flagship machine with a 5.99-inch screen and 5 cameras is exceptionally slim while keeping it slim.
In fact, in addition to the thin and light texture of the fuselage, HMD Global will also focus more on the details of the details, such as the Nokia 9 PureView middle frame is made of 6000 series aluminum alloy, the middle frame and the screen panel by cutting chamfer A smooth and natural transition was completed. At the same time, Nokia also anodized the metal chamfer with a blue coating to make the whole machine more integrated.

At the same time, the screen is also a place where Android Authority is impressed.Android AuthorityAccording to the editor, Nokia 2 PureView's 2K resolution OLED screen is very good, rich in color, and not too saturated.
But the fly in the ointment is that double-sided glass is easy to contaminate the fingerprint, which has a little impact on the beauty of the whole machine.
With 5 cameras, what kind of camera performance can you bring?
If you are not particularly concerned about the imaging performance of your phone, then Nokia 9 PureView may not be the object you need to pay special attention to.
Compared with the flagship machine released at the same time as MWC 2019, Nokia 9 PureView has no shocking folding screen design, and does not have Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, and has no commitment to support 5G network. In fact, all the highlights of the entire phone are centered around the five ZEISS-certified cameras on the back.
This seemingly large and unbullying camera module consists of two 12-megapixel color cameras, three 12-megapixel black-and-white cameras, a ToF sensor and a flash. These five cameras have one common point. , both F/1.8 aperture, 1.25 & mu; m, and are provided by Sony.
Having multiple cameras means that the Nokia 9 PureView can capture the data that is not captured by a normal phone with different exposure settings in one shot, effectively improving the highlights or shadows of the photo, which is in line with the principle of the traditional HDR camera mode. It's about the same.
The stacking of multiple lenses not only allows the Nokia 9 PureView to capture 10 times more light at the same time than a single-camera phone, but also allows the output photos to have a high dynamic range of 12.4 files, and in depth-of-field mode, Nokia 9 PureView can also capture 1200 levels of depth data for a more realistic simulation of depth of field.

From foreign mediaDigital TrendsFrom the experience, the 5 cameras on the back of the Nokia 9 PureView do have a significant improvement in camera performance:
So far, the photos taken by Nokia 9 PureView are very detailed and have realistic colors. Although the original image is a little overexposed, with the Raw (DNG) format and Adobe Lightroom, you can adjust the original image very well.
Digital TrendsThe editor also took a photo comparison with the Google Pixel 3 XL with the Nokia 9 PureView experience machine and found that the colors of the Nokia 9 PureView proofs are more realistic, while the colors of the Pixel 3 XL proofs are too bright, and he prefers the final output image. Imaging performance of the Nokia 9 PureView.

Of course, because the Nokia 9 PureView 5 cameras are not equipped with optical image stabilization technology,Digital TrendsThe editor made the photo blur when shooting the dog.
In his opinion, this is not a big problem. The bigger problem is that Nokia 9 PureView takes a long time from shooting to producing the final viewable photo. If you take photos from editing to editing, it will take nearly a minute. .
During the short experience, I tried to take some photos, the images looked clear, but it took a long time to generate the photos.
In foreign mediaThe VergeIt seems that the longer processing time is currently a poor impression left by Nokia 9 PureView:
Taking photos in raw format and final preview is very slow. In my tests, it took about 10 seconds to take a photo, and then wait a few more seconds for the photo to fully load.
From the principle of five-photographing, the length of time it takes to process a photo seems to be related to the large amount of data generated at the same time.
Although HMD has partnered with Qualcomm and Light to achieve a 5-camera solution with the optimized Opteron 845 and Light Camera Lux Capacitor processors, the sheer volume of data handled by 5-camera may not be sufficient.

You know, Nokia 9 PureView takes a photo that can involve up to 240 million pixels of information and a single RAW file with nearly 30MB of data processing.
This is actually a problem for Light. In 2017, Light’s L16 camera has 16 cameras, but almostMost reviewsIn the middle, you will find the shortcomings of L16 —— takes longer to capture the image.
From the experience of the foreign media at this stage, we can basically determine a little —— that is, this huge camera module consisting of 5 cameras, does improve the imaging of Nokia 9 PureView, but it also exposed Out of the Nokia 9 PureView "powerful performance" when driving the five camera module.
Of course, the foreign media is currently using Nokia's experience machine, which may not reflect the final performance of the market, for HMD Global, it still has time to optimize the Nokia 9 PureView in the camera.
