Nokia’s latest penta-camera flagship smartphone, the Nokia 9 PureView, has been put through a series of tests by JerryRigEverything. Like all other smartphones, the popular YouTuber applied all standard testing procedures like scratch test, bend test, flame test and more on the Nokia 9 on video.
The Nokia 9’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection scratches at Moh level 6 with deeper groves at level 7, which is normal in almost all flagship grade phones these days. Zack Nelson of the JerryRigEverything used the lighter flame on the display and it left a white spot after 30 seconds and recovered soon after. In bend test, the handset’s front and glass didn’t break, which makes the build of the Nokia 9 pretty solid.
After all the tests, Zack says, “This impressive Nokia 9 PureView smartphone with five cameras on the back passes my durability test. It’s definitely a unique looking eye-catching phone. With so many cameras on the back, it’s kind of like googly eyed monster watching you.”
Nokia 9 PureView is HMD Global‘s most ambitious flagship smartphone till date, which comes with penta-lens camera setup at the back. The device made its debut at MWC 2019 in February, but Nokia recently made it available in India.
Both the offline and online price of the Nokia 9 PureView is Rs 49,999 in India. It comes with a QHD+ screen as well as Snapdragon 845 SoC. There are a total of five cameras at the back of the phone.
