Nokia 10 Sketch Leaks Online with Rotating Penta-Lens Camera Setup
Nokia’s current top smartphone is the Nokia 8, but it will soon lose the title to the Nokia 9 and the alleged Nokia 10. We know how the Nokia 9 looks from the previous leaks and renders, but we had nothing about the Nokia 10 until now. A new sketch has appeared on Baidu showing the rear sides of the Nokia 9 and the Nokia 10. The new image gives an idea of design and proportion by comparing them.
There is not much information about the origin of the image. However, the images contain a watermark from Baidu and a mention that the image’s designer is known for accurate smartphone predictions. It is not even an official render, so we can’t be sure if the image is genuine or fake. However, according to the new rumors, German optics manufacturing company ZEISS, who also happens to be the supplier of Nokia 8 cameras, has received a patent that uses multiple camera rotation switches to attain a different focal length, like a single camera. The image includes a circular unit in the Nokia 10 rear that contains numerous camera units.
The rotating unit contains a centered camera unit, which will likely be the primary lens. The remaining rotating units will likely work as a dual secondary lens, achieving different focal lengths, zoom, and other effects. The Nokia 10 also includes a rear fingerprint sensor on the rear below the circular “rotating” unit. The Nokia 9 looks smaller than the companion and includes a dual camera set up on the rear and a circular fingerprint sensor. The cameras are arranged in a vertical arrangement along with an LED flash. There is a high possibility that the device will be unveiled at the MWC 2018 next month.
The source also mentions some of the specs of the Nokia 10. The device is supposed to come with a glass body covering both the front and back and a display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Inside, it will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. However, it’s worth mentioning that it is still a word of speculation, so don’t get your hopes too high. Another slightly relevant thing is that HMD Global is looking to manufacture a Nokia smartphone with five cameras encased in a similar circular casing. Whatever be it, this is a fresh new concept, and we are excited to explore what this new technology could offer.
