HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has announced four new Android smartphones, including the world’s first smartphone with a unique five camera array, the Nokia 9 PureView. With a dedication to delivering quality technology for all, the new Nokia phones are as diverse as the consumer needs they serve. From Nokia 9 PureView to the Nokia 210 – the company’s most affordable internet enabled feature phone – consumers can trust there is a Nokia phone that meets their distinct needs.

Imaging innovation for enthusiasts
Nokia 9 PureView features the world’s first five camera array with ZEISS Optics to put next generation computational imaging technology into the hands of advanced photography enthusiasts. Every picture taken with a Nokia 9 PureView is in HDR, five cameras simultaneously capture the image and fuse it together into one 12MP photo with outstanding dynamic range and depth of field. Designed with the needs of photography enthusiasts at its heart, Nokia 9 PureView also features the ability to capture images in uncompressed RAW “DNG” format and edit them directly on the phone yourself thanks to our partnership with Adobe Lightroom. It has been said that 50% of the art of photography is in post-production and with Nokia 9 PureView you have every opportunity to shine.

Heads-up: change the way you interact with your phone with a dedicated Google Assistant Button
Voice is changing the way people interact with their smartphones. With a dedication to delivering quality technology for all, Nokia smartphones bring the fastest way to access the Google Assistant with the dedicated Google Assistant button – starting with the brand-new Nokia 4.2 and Nokia 3.2.

The Google Assistant button will revolutionise the way you engage with your smartphone. Simply press once for instant access to the Google Assistant to get things done throughout your day, such as getting directions, making calls, listening to music and getting answers to your questions faster than ever before. Double press to receive a visual overview of your day from the Google Assistant with intelligent suggestions and personalised information, including transport info, and what you have in your calendar to make sure you never miss a meeting again. By long pressing the button, you will activate a walkie-talkie mode, which lets the Google Assistant listen to you until you release it for long sentence queries.

Nokia smartphone experience: it just keeps getting better
The depth of the global portfolio commitment to Android One guarantees three years of monthly security updates and two years of OS updates, delivering a range of Nokia smartphones that offer the latest Android experience which only gets better over time. Each phone stays fresh with the latest AI powered innovations to the built-in security protection of Google Play Protect. With a pure Android installation, Nokia smartphones come with no unnecessary UI changes or hidden processes that would eat up battery life or slow them down, so you can enjoy your new phone for longer. Each of the new phones comes with a limited number of pre-installed apps so that you get more storage space, as well as the latest innovations that help you stay ahead of the game every day.
