While other companies are expected to catch on with the trend of  launching smartphones with four rear-facing cameras, HMD Global is reportedly prepping up Nokia 9 PureView flagship phone with five rear cameras. Well, the penta-lens camera design of the rumored Nokia 9 PureView is not a secret since multiple leaks have revealed it. GizmoChina brings to you some new shots of Nokia 9 PureView case to reveal its design.

The Nokia 9 PureView case images matches with the CAD renders of its case that had surfaced in the previous month. It also resembles with the Nokia 9 case that is currently listed on Amazon UK. The newly leaked TPU case of the upcoming Nokia flagship phone has seven cutouts. Rumors suggest that five of them will belong to various kinds of sensors such as RGB, depth sensor, wide-angle lens, telephoto lens and monochrome sensor. The other cutouts could belong to dual-tone LED flash and a sensor for proximity detection.

The small round-shaped cutouts at the top and bottom edges of the TPU case of the smartphone could be for the two microphones. The bottom edge of the smartphone may also feature a USB-C port and an external speaker. The left side of the phone appears to be barren whereas the right side of the phone seems to feature volume rocker and power button. The SIM tray could be placed on the left side of the smartphone. There is no cutout for the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner which indicates that the Nokia 9 PureView could be the first Nokia phone with in-screen fingerprint scanner.

The Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8 GB of RAM and 4,150mAh battery could be powering the smartphone.
