Nokia's upcoming Nokia 9 Pureview smartphone looks to redefine smartphone photography with a staggering 5 rear lenses and a highly competitive price.
Since its re-emergence in the mobile scene, by way of HMD Global, Nokia's primary market for smartphones has been in the budget and mid-price spaces, producing phones with superb design but relatively little power.
When it has dabbled in the premium space, the results have been slightly less impressive for the asking price. Not that the Nokia 8 or Nokia 8 Sirocco were bad phones; they just compared poorly with the leading flagships of the time.
Nokia appears to be getting really serious about flagship phones for 2019 in the form of the Nokia 9 Pureview, a phone that combines serious camera optics with plenty of power.

Nokia 9 Pureview
Nokia's camera-centric handset
The Nokia 9 Pureview is all about photography, with an astonishing 5 cameras all shooting at once to help you get superior shots.
The use of an older flagship processor does allow Nokia to offer up the Nokia 9 Pureview at a rather attractive price point for a "flagship" phone. In Australia, it goes on sale from 9 May 2019 through Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi with a recommended price point of $1,099. If you're keen on the Nokia 9 Pureview you'll have to buy it outright, with no current carrier options in play.
