According to wired each sensor is a 19mm² sensor = 1/2.9" type sensor. Though then HMD's statement (10 times more light compared with 1/2.9" + f/1.8 doesn't make sense as each monochrome camera is said to capture 2.9 times as much light)
No offense, but I see this phone as a gimmick. You don't need 5 separate cameras for image binning. The Pixels & most modern phones do it with one camera, and they do it well.
Nokia dropped the ball IMO.
no ois tho why come on nokia....but beautiful design and specs 845 is still a really capable and fast chipset with clean on top android one software
This phone is a limited version, so they will surely release an SD855 flagship at some point.

That's exactly what HMD is talking about. So my calculation is correct if the monochrome sensor is a 1/2.9" sensor.
It is interesting that HMD's website doesn't advertise the resulting 60 - 240 megapixel photos although they mentioned this at the presentation. Seems as if they don't believe in their own product...

Waiting for the review to show that several sensors can't beat a single good big one. As we already saw in other devices, like the Light cameras. This could be even below the Mi 9...
Galaxy Note 10, 24 Feb 2019845 !? What's the point!!The five cameras are the point at $699
Nick Tagataka, 24 Feb 2019Where did you get information that those sensors are 1/2.8"?Gsmarena specs are ofte not correct, they often just guess them. HMD has not reveiled the sensor sizes. They say that 5 cameras capture 10 times as much light as a smartphone camera and that each monochrome camera can capture 2.9times as much light as a smartphone with 1/2.9" sensor + f/1.8 light. So if the monochrome sensor is a 1/2.9" sensor as well, then the two RGB color sensors are just 1/3.6" sensors. 10x(1.25²x12)-(3*2.9)x(1.25²x12)= 1.3x(1.25²x12) ==> 1.3/2 = 0.65 => 0.65 x(1.25² x 12) = 12.2 mm² = 1/3.6" sensor
This situation reminds me of 808 PV announcement.
They had been going with Windows route. But 808 was still running on Symbian. The last one to run it.
It was because Nokia had been loooong time ago developing the phone with Symbian OS powering it. Year later, they brought the tech to Windows Phone.
So i hope, maybe a Nokia 10 could bring a latest 5G and SD855, along with edge to edge screen -- although i prefer this notchless design, it is just looking balanced.
One can hope.
Galaxy Note 10, 24 Feb 2019845 !? What's the point!!Ya, what's even the point since this one is only 699 while you can get s10+ for 999, or even Xs Max for 1100.
I mean, 845 is still a flagship grade soc.
Nick Tagataka, 24 Feb 2019Where did you get information that those sensors are 1/2.8"?On the specifications page
It is strange. There is no mention of sensor size in hands on article.
Galaxy Note 10, 24 Feb 2019845 !? What's the point!!you mean the point of your existence?
A reasonably priced phone with insanely over-the-top 5 camera setup. If the they are just as good as Nokia claims to be, no doubt this is going to be absolutely the best fixed focal length smartphone camera on the market right now. I hope more and more companies will use monochrome sensor for their smartphone cameras in future, it's so underrated.. Now watch out Huawei, Google and Apple, this time Nokia is getting real with the flagship smartphone game.
