Nokia 9 renders show off the trypophobia-inducing penta-camera setup

Nokia 9 renders show off the trypophobia-inducing penta-camera setup

The mere presence of five cameras would make the Nokia 9 a unique phone on the market.

Apart from this, the Nokia 9 is rumoured to be powered by a Qualcomm 845 chipset and will run on Android 9 Pie. (@OnLeaks), 91Mobiles has created some high-resolution renders as well as a 360-degree video of the upcoming Nokia 9 PureView. The renders show the circular placement of the rear cameras along with a dual-tone LED flash and a dual-sensor that could be used for proximity detection.

We don't have any specifics as to what those five cameras will entail, but we'll likely see the usual assortment of a main sensor, wide-angle lens, a telephoto one, and more.

It's unclear what exactly any of the five cameras are for, but some other rumored specs for the device are discussed, such as a possible 5.9-inch QHD display and a fingerprint reader under the screen. Further, there is a Zeiss branding on the camera setup. The dimensions of the Nokia 9 are expected to be 155 x 75 x 7.9mm. There is a single front-facing camera along with two sensors. This pretty much confirms previous rumours that the smartphone will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, a feature we've most recently seen on the OnePlus 6T (review).

It's the first Nokia device to hit our shores to sport a notch - a design feature that has now become ubiquitous in the smartphone landscape. We're also looking at an 18:9 display, USB-C for charging, and no 3.5mm headphone jack. The power button and volume rocker are on the right, while the ejectable SIM card tray has been moved to the top. The PureView branding means that the phone will have a special emphasis on camera, and the renders back that up. A secondary microphone is integrated into the antenna band on the top-edge, and there's also a third microphone on the back. Other expected specifications include up to 8GB of RAM, 128GB storage, a 4,150mAh battery and water- and dust-resistance.
