In the past six months, we’ve seen plenty of phones with three cameras, and a bunch with four cameras too.
Now, Nokia has upped the ante with the launch of the world’s first phone with five rear cameras – the Nokia 9 Pureview.
But intriguingly, instead of offering a range of options for shooting pictures, the phone’s single focus is to provide top-notch image quality.
The Finnish phone brand had to opt for this chip because the PureView’s main processor – the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 – can only support two cameras working simultaneously.
Each lens of the Nokia 9 captures one to four frames, and the whole setup captures between 60MB and 240MB of data per photograph.
You can also choose to save the uncompressed photo in RAW DNG format with a size of around 30MB per image, and edit it later using powerful apps like Adobe’s Lightroom CC.
