Nokia Smartphone with 5 Rear Cameras in Development

Dual smartphone cameras ruled in 2017. Many smartphones have four cameras, like the Honor 9i and the Gionee S11. According to new rumors, HMD Global is working on a new Nokia smartphone with five cameras.

This new information was shared by a source who is privy to Foxconn’s business plans, as the company is reported to have joined hands with HMD for this smartphone. And even Chinese company Foxconn handles all production of HMD Global Nokia smartphones.

As per the source, the Nokia smartphone comes with the Penta-lens with a circular camera housing similar to that of the Lumia 1020 or a few design elements from the Nokia OZO VR camera. There will be seven holes in the circular piece, of which five will be holding a camera sensor while the other two will contain an LED flash. The source didn’t mention any working of the sensors or what features it will be offering.

If this information is genuine, we could look at a smartphone with six cameras or seven with a dual camera lens on the front. The device is also reported to have a full-screen design. To support all these cameras and the big display, the smartphone will likely offer a powerful battery rated around 4,000 mAh or more.

According to the source, if Foxconn agrees to a deal and finds a way for the mass production of the smartphone, the device could hit the market at the end of this year. Until now, there have been only smartphones with a dual camera setup on the rear, though there are rumors of the Huawei P11 having three cameras on the rear; it is supposed to be unveiled at MWC 2018. Usually, new camera technology is pioneered by Huawei, but if the latest report turns out to be accurate, HMD Global could beat Huawei in their own game.
