The Nokia 9 has been rumored for a few months to pack in a five camera system, and not like the LG V40 ThinQ where it counts the dual front-facing cameras. Nope, Nokia’s sticking five sensors on the back of the device, and now it’s been leaked in press renders making it seem even more legit.
Now if you’re looking at that render and counting, you probably see seven modules, not five. One of them is an LED flash, obviously, but that still leaves a sixth sensor. Supposedly one of those is also a secondary proximity sensor to be used for depth photography, which should help out with portrait style photos.
Aside from the cameras, the Nokia 9 appears to be a pretty high-end phone as far as hardware goes. You’ll get slim bezels around an 18:9 high resolution display, a Snapdragon 845 CPU, up to 8GB of RAM, and other less tangible features like an in-display fingerprint scanner and wireless charging. The renders don’t show a headphone jack, though, so keep that in mind.
These are still just leaks, so everything obviously everything here could be completely fake. But if it does turn out to be true Nokia just might have the most interesting flagship phone we’ve seen in years, even if it might be a little overkill.
