The new Nokia smartphone is likely to be very similar to this Nokia OZO camera that was debuted with eight lenses back in July 2015.According to a report by China’s VTech, sources familiar with Foxconn’s R&D developments have revealed the strategies for the brand new penta-lens camera. The Nokia handset in question is said to be currently prototyped by HMD and is expected to go on sale sometime at the end of the year. Its launch is thus far depending on the mass production capabilities at Foxconn as embedding five camera lenses doesn’t sound as easy as adding double camera setups which you could see on many present Android offerings.
The penta-lens camera system on the cryptic Nokia apparatus is reported to emerge in a circular shape using not 5, but seven holes. Five of those holes will include camera lenses, while both are said to have two LED flashlights. It appears that this whole new camera setup may enable the new Nokia smartphone to capture fabulous shots, no matter environmental and lighting conditions. Further, the rumoured handset has been reported to have a fullscreen, thin-bezel screen.
Characteristics supporting the penta-lens camera setup are yet to surface online. However, we’ve already seen the presence of the Nokia brand on models such as Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 with built-in Ozo spatial audio technology. HMD also last year tied up with German optics maker ZEISS to bring its Android smartphones with different imaging technologies. The Nokia 8 already brought a crystal clear instance of the partnership by providing an improved dual camera setup that has optical image stabilisation, monochrome detector, camera lens, and a telephoto lens.
Last week, HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas teased a major showcasing strategy for its MWC 2018. The executive did not disclose any details, but some of the recent reports confirm that the company is enlarging the Nokia family with the launch of the Nokia 1, Nokia 4, Nokia 7, Nokia 8 (2018), also Nokia 9. One of the new models, the Nokia 9 is expected to be the newest flagship offering by the Finland-headquartered company. It is very likely to have a double selfie camera setup plus a thin-bezel, 5.5-inch OLED display. The smartphone is also rumoured to come with 12-megapixel and 13-megapixel camera sensors on the back and also a 3250mAh battery.
The Nokia lineup at the coming MWC is also likely to acquire the affordable, Nokia 1 that is indeed far rumoured to be among the first Android Go tablets. It’s expected to come with an HD IPS display, 1GB RAM, and 8GB onboard storage.
