The five camera setup on Nokia 9 PureView

Five cameras with ZEISS Optics

One phone, five cameras working simultaneously on every shot. This is Nokia 9 PureView.

Working in perfect unison, the five 12 MP cameras collect up to 10 times more light than a single smartphone camera color1 sensor. The results: photos with superb dynamic range that capture detail and texture from both the highlights and shadows, plus incredible depth-of-field and vibrant, truest-to-life color.
  • Five 12 MP cameras with ZEISS Optics
  • Exceptional dynamic range in every shot
  • Incredible depth-of-field – adjust the focus after the shot
  • Native black-and-white photography
  • Shoot and edit RAW DNG photos on the phone

The finest details

HDR images and video captured with Nokia 9 PureView feature exceptional dynamic range, preserving the details within the highlights and shadows alike.

Go beyond the reach of a single camera. Each of the five cameras automatically adopt the optimal settings for various parts of the scene. Then, synced with bespoke algorithms and advanced AI, the cameras shoot simultaneously. Finally, the images are fused into a single HDR photo with texture and detail from both the shadows and the highlights.

  • Each camera automatically adopts the optimal settings for your photo
  • All five cameras shoot simultaneously to composite the final image

Depth of field

Next-level focal control

The five cameras create an incredibly accurate depth map of your image. This gives you ultimate focal control when editing the photo long after the shot is taken.

Pick out a face in a crowd or leaf in a forest. Using depth mode, Nokia 9 PureView can identify over 1,200 layers which it uses to build a detailed depth map. This lets you re-discover elements of your photo by re-focusing the shot later in Google Photos.

  • Readjust the focus later in Google Photos
  • Powerful blur effect control for beautiful bokeh photos

A different kind of expression

They say a picture speaks a thousand words.

Native monochrome mode captures the image in black-and-white instead of converting it after the shot. This unique method delivers stunningly crisp black-and-white photos with exquisite detail.

  • Effortlessly switch to monochrome mode from within the camera app
  • Three f/1.8 monochrome sensors enable native monochrome mode
