Dual smartphone cameras ruled in 2017. Many smartphones came with totals of four cameras like Honor 9i and the Gionee S11. Now according to the new rumours, HMD Global is working on a new Nokia smartphone that contains 5 cameras on board.
This new piece of information was shared by a source that is privy to Foxconn’s business plans, as the company is reported to join 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 that has circular camera housing similar to that of the Lumia 1020 or a few design elements from the Nokia OZO VR camera. In the circular piece, there will be seven holes of which five will be holding a camera sensor while the other two will be containing a 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 be looking a smartphone that will be having 6 cameras or 7 if contains 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 is likely to offer a powerful battery that is 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 markets at the end of this year. Till now there have been only smartphones with dual camera setup on the rear though there are rumours of the Huawei P11 having three cameras on the rear and is supposed to unveil at MWC 2018. Usually, new camera technology is pioneered by Huawei, but if the new report turns out to be true, HMD Global could beat Huawei in their own game.
