Nokia smartphone with 5 cameras could be coming soon

Well, it looks like today we have our first design look of Nokia's Flagship With Penta-Lens Camera.

It's not clear how the lenses will be divided or what they'll be used for, but we'd guess there will be three on the back and two on the front. The information comes from a source close to Foxconn's R&D business, which makes it a reliable one, as HMD Global is working closely with Foxconn to launch new Nokia smartphones.

Not much is known about the penta lens Nokia mobile yet. The phone is expected to have an extraordinary five-camera setup.

Spotted by VTech, the source mentions that Nokia is testing a high-end camera smartphone, which is expected to go on mass production in mid-2018. Oddly its drawing includes seven circles on the camera lens disc diagram.

The report went on to say that Foxconn is working on two full-screen devices, out of which one is believed to be the Nokia 8 second generation while the other still remains a mystery.

After announcing the Nokia 6 (2018) earlier this month, HMD Global all set to unveil something awesome at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona which will be held later in February.

Meanwhile, Huawei is also planning to launch its P-20 flagship phone which will reportedly feature five cameras.

The handset, which has been dubbed the Nokia 10, is expected to feature five high-resolution lenses, a dual-LED flash and a rear-facing fingerprint reader. The executive didn't reveal any details, but some of the recent reports confirm that the company is expanding the Nokia family with the launch of the Nokia 1, Nokia 4, Nokia 7, Nokia 8 (2018), and Nokia 9.
