Nokia’s current top of the smartphone is the Nokia 8 but will soon lose the title to the Nokia 9 and the alleged Nokia 10. From the previous leaks and render we know how the Nokia 9 looks but we had nothing about the Nokia 10, until now. A new sketch has appeared on Baidu showing both the rear sides of the Nokia 9 and the Nokia 10. The new image seems to give an idea of design and proportion by comparing them side by side.
There is not much information about the origin of the image, though 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 of the image is genuine or fake. But according to the new rumours, German optics manufacturing company ZEISS who also happen to be the supplier of Nokia 8 cameras, has received a patent that use multiple camera rotation switches to attain a different focal length, like a single camera. And the image happens to include a circular unit in Nokia 10 rear that contains the multiple camera units.
The rotating unit contains a centered camera unit which will likely be the primary lens. The remaining rotating units will likely to work as a dual secondary lens achieving different focal length, zoom and other effects. The Nokia 10 also includes a rear fingerprint sensor on the rear below the circular “rotating” unit. As for the Nokia 9, it looks a bit smaller than the companion and also includes a dual camera set up on the rear along with 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 in 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 front and back and a display of 18:9 aspect ratio. Inside, it will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. However, it’s worth mentioning that it still a word of speculation so don’t get your hopes too high. Another slight relevant thing to mention is that HMD Global is looking to manufacture a Nokia smartphone with 5 cameras that are also 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.
