In 2017, we saw a number of manufacturers release phones with four cameras. A few examples are the Gionee S11s, Nubia Z17S, Meitu V6, and a number of Huawei and Honor phones. Now there is a rumor that HMD Global is working on a Nokia phone with five cameras!!!
The info comes from a source who is privy to Foxconn’s business plans, as the company is said to be working with HMD Global on the project. As we all know, Foxconn handles production of HMD’s Nokia phones.
According to the source, the Nokia phone with the penta-lens will have a circular camera housing similar to that of the Lumia 1020. There will be seven holes arranged within the circle. Five of those holes will each hold a sensor while the other two will house the LED flash. There are no details as to how the sensors will work though.
Based on the description above, we are looking at a phone with 6 or 7 cameras in total if we count a single or dual camera system in front too. It is also reported to have a full-screen design.
The source says if Foxconn is able to find a way to mass produce it, we may see this spectacular phone launch later this year.
What do you think of a phone with five cameras? Is Nokia overdoing it this time? We sure have seen proof that two cameras (one on each side) are perfectly fine but nevertheless, we are equally excited to see this too.
