At Mobile World Congress 2019, HMD Global announced a new flagship smartphone: the Android One Nokia 9. The trend so far has been limited to a maximum of three cameras, or in some cases four cameras at the back.

The Light-powered penta-camera on the Nokia 9 PureView is unlike anything we've tested before.

Light started out with its own L16 camera offering a total of sixteen sensors, but then added a nine sensor array to its talents. Having three monochrome and two RGB sensors might seem unnecessary, but the benefits are substantial for dynamic range and depth-of-field. The camera will shot in RAW by default, though users will be able to change this in the settings. Nokia says the images are between 60MP and 240MP depending on the scene. Designed for photography enthusiasts, the Nokia 9 PureView is the only smartphone to capture images simultaneously from all five lenses to give you an image capture so rich that post processing possibilities are endless.

The Nokia 9 PureView's standard 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage compares favorably to other category rivals like the OnePlus 6T and the upcoming Galaxy S10e. The camera does not have OIS or optical image stabilization, only EIS or Electronic Image Stabilization for video. Nokia 9 PureView is also capable of panoramas, which can quickly tot up to more than 240-megapixels.

The phone will be available in one color, midnight blue, at a price of $699. It is an IP67-rated water-resistant and dustproof device.

Nokia 4.2 and Nokia 3.2 are the two mid-range smartphones from the company.

Similarly, the bigger, cheaper Nokia 3.2 has the Assistant button, too, but trades the dual cameras for a larger 6.26-inch 720p display, the glass back for plastic, and drops the processor to a Snapdragon 429. The global units of the phones will also come with secure NFC, while the India variant will not have NFC. It also has a 5.45-inch FWVGA display, and a 2500 mAh battery. There's also an LED flash and a depth sensor. As you might've read earlier, due to the chip-specific work needed to achieve the five-camera setup, it's still running last year's Snapdragon 845 flagship SoC.

He stated that he is super excited to join us on the stage this Sunday at MWC 2019 as they have something extraordinary to share with us. The smartphone has a 5.71-inch HD+ display with 19:9 aspect ratio. This new chipset helps to take some of the strain off the SnapDragon 855 to avoid battery life suffering.

Under the hood, Nokia 1 Plus runs on MediaTek's MT6739 quad-core processor.

The Nokia 3.2, even though it sports a polished polycarbonate unibody design, the device looks absolutely stunning. The average price will be $35. It runs Android 9 Pie (Go edition) out of the box. It comes with 1GB of RAM and two storage options of 8GB or 16GB.

The Nokia 4.2 is backed by a 3,000mAh battery and the Nokia 3.2 gets its fuel from a 4,000mAh battery.

On the camera front, there is an 8MP rear shooter and a 5MP front camera, with support for Portrait mode and Beauty mode. Nokia 1 Plus carries a price tag of $99.
