As its most-advanced smartphone till date, HMD Global has launched the Nokia 9 PureView in Barcelona. When one presses the shutter button, the Nokia 9 PureView captures photos from all the five camera sensors in varying exposures. As such, it may seem like a small detail, but it shows that HMD Global is more concerned with the photographic elements of the device than it is the display.

The high-end Nokia 9 PureView has its main USP is the hexagonal shape of a five-camera module at the back (all rated at 12MP) with support for the ZEISS lens, becoming the world's first five-camera smartphone.

The Light ASIC independently controls all digital camera modules as a way to focus them, regulate publicity ranges per aperture, calculate white steadiness, and many others. That's a full 12-megapixel shot created from an amalgam of 5 cameras, all with adjustable depth information and Nokia is saying that captures can include up to 1200 depth layers in total. Then the chip transfers the "RAW" information utilizing two MIPI transmitters to a number for additional processing. The Nokia PureView is also IP67 certified for water and dust resistance and packs a USB Type-C port. For extra security, there is a fingerprint sensor under the screen and a face unlocking system. The Nokia 9 will be using the Snapdragon 845 processor, Adreno 630 for the GPU, and will have 128gb of storage with 6gb of RAM.

The highlight of the Nokia 9 PureView are the 5 cameras onboard here. Though the Nokia 9 doesn't use the newer processors such as the Snapdragon 855, Nokia still promises that its latest phone is optimized to fully take advantage of everything the 845 processor can offer.

The PureView is also an Android One device and Nokia brags that it provides a "pure software experience, offering the best of Android with a streamlined interface and no bloatware".

Amtrak train stalled since Sunday after hitting a tree
The service operates daily between Seattle and Los Angeles, Magliari said. "It's just been like a giant kumbaya party ". No one was hurt when the train hit a tree that had fallen onto the tracks Sunday about 6:18 p.m., Amtrak said.

Such a high resolution was frankly unheard of in the smartphone industry, and even many dedicated cameras couldn't match the Nokia's pixel count.

The Nokia 9 PureView will fetch €599 when it goes on sale later this year, though Nokia has warned that it'll be made available in "limited quantities".

"We are thrilled to partner with Light to leverage their advanced imaging solutions for our future devices", said Zhu Dan, VP, GM of smartphone camera department, Xiaomi. At the rear, there's an 8MP camera with autofocus, and up front a 5MP snapper. There's no 3.5mm headphone jack, though. Nokia 9 PureView is priced at $699 (Rs 50,000 approx), and will start shipping early next month.

Another area where the Nokia 9 excels - at least in theory - is with the time-of-flight sensor, also known as a 3D depth sensor.

There's also a 5.99-inch QHD+ pOLED Nokia PureDisplay with 18:9 aspect ratio.
