Head of Huawei's consumer business group, Richard Yu said on the sidelines of the Mobile World Congress, the largest annual industry event in Barcelona, Spain, "This phone is not only for today for 5G but also for future 5G". Though the company has not officially revealed the names of the devices it plans to launch, speculations and numerous leaks suggest that it will unveil Nokia 9 PureView.

Each of the lenses is triggered when a photo is taken and internal software melds those five images into one, offering phone-based photographers the ability to create the out-of-focus "bokeh" effects that not long ago were only possible through the use of traditional cameras with bulky lenses.

The Nokia 9 PureView boasts an all-glass sandwich design, with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection both on the front and rear. With three f/1.8 monochrome sensors and two colour sensors, the Nokia 9 manages to capture huge visual quality.

Moving on to the most important and most anticipated feature of the phone, its quintuple camera system.

First and foremost, it features a 5.45-inch LCD screen wit ha resolution of 854x480 pixels and 180 PPI and is powered by a MediaTek MT6739WW quad-core processor running at 1.5 GHz.

Tiger Woods carded a final-round 69 with three birdies to finish on eight under in joint 10th place. Australian Cameron Smith is the best placed Aussie tied for sixth at six-under.

It remains to be seen whether the Nokia 9 PureView will be able to live up to the hype.

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".

Unlike the cameras you'll find on the Galaxy S10 et al, there are no wide, telephoto or ultra-wide sensors. Furthermore, it features an 8MP camera on the rear with LED flash and has a 5MP front facing sensor. All the five cameras work simultaneously to take a shot and the results are fused in the end for the end image.

If an equipment swap on that scale had to be undertaken, it would be massively disruptive to infrastructure and users, besides costing a pretty penny, he pointed out. The phone can also churn out DNG files and shoot in RAW format to edit them further. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that came out a year ago but end users won't really find a difference in the speed or rendering of graphics. The device also packs a massive 5,000mAh battery which also supports 22.5W fast charging, although there isn't any wireless charging support. The Nokia 9 PureView will get an Android One version of Android 9.0.

Android 9 Pie update will bring a range of new features, adaptive battery, tweaked navigation, and improved notifications.
