The Nokia Lumia 1020 was the biggest breakthrough in smartphone photography of its time.

The Nokia 9 PureView is a beautiful phone from HMD Global that aims high with its unique imaging features. The five-camera array developed with Light and Zeiss was perhaps too ambitious, as the camera app on our review unit performed poorly and the resulting images didn't quite meet expectations. Practically everything else is great and HMD says the Nokia 9 will only get better over time.

Tech Advisor

The first phone to ever feature five rear camera lenses

from Tech Advisor

With its design and processor lagging behind the competition, the 9 PureView is likely to stand or fall based on whether or not the photo output lives up to Nokia’s hype. If it does, this could be a popular choice for phone photographers, but if it can’t stand out then this will feel like little more than a relic of 2018.

The Nokia 9 PureView is clearly aimed at photography fanatics, and it’s certainly got enough distinguishing features to entice those who want pro shots without having to lug around a dedicated camera. The rest of the phone is good if not great, with a design that feels a little dated at this stage, and a processor that’s not quite on the cutting edge anymore.
