A new leak has surfaced, giving us our closest look so far at the Nokia 9 Pureview. Notable features include a massive penta-lens setup at the back, what appears to be a dual selfie setup at the front, an under-display fingerprint sensor, and the absence of a notch.

Rumors of the Nokia 9 have been rife. Last week, it was revealed that HMD Global would officially unveil the device by the end of January. We’re in the endgame now, and that shows, as what appears to be the first official marketing renders of the device have finally surfaced.

Of course, this isn’t coming from official channels; the source here is popular tipster Evan Blass of Venture Beats, who has a reputation for being extremely reliable. And on to the crux of the matter…

The new images don’t tell us much that we haven’t been able to piece together from other leaks. For one, the Nokia 9 Pureview has no notch. Instead, it opts for a top and bottom bezel. The bottom bezel, in particular, is pretty big—at least noticeably bigger than the bezels found on recent flagships. Both bezels are symmetrical, at least. Here you go, hardcore notch-hating enthusiasts; this is the phone you’ve been crying out for.

The top bezel houses a speaker grille, a notification LED, and what appears to be two selfie cameras. There’s a chance that the second sensor is an infrared or 3D one for face unlock, though. There’s Nokia crested at the top right corner. The bottom bezel is empty. 

At the back of the device is the most impressive camera setup we’ve ever seen on a smartphone. Five sensors, an LED flash, and a currently unspecified circular patch form a massive array. There is no fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, as the Nokia 9 opts for an in-display sensor. At the bottom of the phone is the Android One logo.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on this.
