Smartphone has gone so fast in computing in recent years and the leaders in this space are Google, Huawei and Apple, who have made some very good progress with software to produce some great photos with lots of details and excellent exposure.
Until MWC, Nokia's social media chief, Edoardo Cassina has published a photo shot by a Finnish professional photographer, Konsta Punkka. The photographer also published the image, which shows exactly what Nokia 9 and its five-camera phone could do.
Of course, every image published in Instagram is automatically subject to any kind of compression, but there are still some things we can get from the photo. First of all, this is a beautiful shot in terms of the composition and the timing of the sun over the mountains. Dark clouds add an extra level of depth and balance the darkness across the scene.
More important than the composition, it is very difficult to capture this shot with any old smartphone due to all the exhibitions being played. The sun shines directly to the camera as it goes out over the mountains, but we can see some details in the shadows of the mountain peaks and we do not see the area where the sun is running out.
The official release of Nokia 9 PureView has been dismantled
Although the publication says the photo is actually edited on the same phone shot, we wonder what kind of application was used to achieve this. Nokia 9 should be able to pull large amounts of information from a scene and might be able to record in RAW will achieve this level of detail. This phone must be crazy good with situations of high dynamic range.
We still do not know anything about whether Nokia 9 uses zoom cameras or wide-format cameras and if any combination of these is used to capture this photo. In any case, we are very excited to see how much more this camera will be possible when it is announced this Sunday during the Mobile World Congress announcement. It will take place at 4pm. local time in Barcelona, Spain.
