Nokia is rumored to have a new 48MP mid-range phone in the works

A new report includes images of a heretofore-unseen phone linked to Nokia with triple cameras in a single circular module. Some material allegedly posted alongside these photos asserts that the main lens has a 48MP resolution. However, as a rear-facing fingerprint sensor is also visible, this putative new phone is not likely to be a premium product.

Nokia is now alleged to have another new phone in the works. This apparent device has triple cameras, which are arranged within a single circular protrusion on the back of the device. Therefore, it does not look dissimilar from current renders of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. The putative Nokia take on this design integrates a 48MP shooter, according to the leaker originally associated with a series of images showing the device in question.

The round camera pore may be the most interesting thing about this putative new phone, however. Some of the images linked to it also show an equally circular fingerprint sensor located directly underneath the cameras. It gives a decent esthetic appeal (even if it also looks like a Munch painting's face in one photo showing the phone with a case on it), but also means that, unlike the Mate 30 Pro, this is not likely to be a flagship-beating design. 

Other images of its front panel also indicate that the "new Nokia" has a display with a waterdrop notch. Therefore, should the phone in question be real, it may turn out to be a successor for something like the X71 in the future. On the other hand, the original source of this leak, located on the Weibo social network, are now no longer to be found on this website. Therefore, this "round-camera Nokia" may not become a reality after all.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
