Below is a leaked render of the Nokia 9 PureView, codenamed 'Beholder, ' a smartphone with five rear-facing camera sensors, featuring a 7-sensor array.
"MySmartPrice" is the source for this leaked (oddly portrait) promo video for the upcoming Nokia 9 PureView, embedded below. If the promo video is true, then the Nokia 9 PureView pretty much keeps in line with everything we have heard so far.
Though we're unsure exactly how a five-camera setup could work on this phone, we at least know how it could (or indeed, might) look.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor might be paired with 6GB RAM given that it could be a flagship smartphone by the firm. The phone also has a single camera sensor on the front. Speaking of charging, the Nokia 9 PureView is rumoured to have a 4,150mAh battery.
But it also reveals that for the first time, Nokia could be adopting an in-display fingerprint sensor technology. Borrowing a bit from the Nokia 8 Sirocco's design, the Nokia 9 will apparently sport a glass-sandwich design with subtly curvy sides similar to a Samsung Galaxy S8 or S9.
Of course, the highlight here is the circular penta-camera setup, though until now, we're not sure what the lenses are for.
The Nokia 9 PureView will have Qi wireless charging and will run Android One, based on Android 9, making it very "stock" and also guaranteed updates. Nokia 9 PureView is code-named "Olympic".
Congratulations to our partners and friends at @zeisslenses. It's possible we will get to see the launch of the product sometime this month, or Nokia could be revealing it at Mobile World Congress in February. Although there is no word on the launch timeframe of the smartphone, a recent report by a Russian website Nokia Anew stated the handset to launch in the last week of January. That would put the launch date after CES 2019 and before MWC 2019.
