Hands on: Nokia 9 PureView review

Nokia has pulled out all the stops when it comes to the Nokia 9 PureView. This is a handset that screams camera phone and it has been revealed at MWC 2019

That's because it's got five (count 'em) lenses on the back. This is a world's first five camera array and it's an interesting look.
