A leaked alleged press render of the upcoming Nokia 9 PureView flagship smartphone seems to have confirmed what most were expecting: That the device will sport an impressive rear-facing quintuple camera setup. That’s a whole two more sensors than anything in Samsung’s Galaxy S10 line-up. However, the Nokia 9 also features some hefty bezels.

Apparently, HMD Global isn’t interested in a triple camera setup for its flagship smartphone, and the idea of a quadruple lens system is possibly too dull for the company’s engineers. So the oft-believed and expected quintuple/penta/five-camera system seems to be finally confirmed for the Nokia 9 PureView, according to the leaked press render that 91mobiles published recently.

The render shows the front and rear of the device. On the front of the Nokia 9 PureView there are the aforementioned chunky bezels; after all if HMD is going to ignore the competition and introduce a five-camera setup then why should the manufacturer care about narrow bezels? There is the icon for an in-display fingerprint scanner visible too, and there is a front-facing selfie camera next to the Nokia logo.

Obviously, at the moment it is the rear of the Nokia 9 PureView that is going to be a conversation starter. A five-camera system in a circular pattern, featuring a total of seven modules (there is an LED flash on the upper left and an autofocus module on the upper right), will certainly help the Nokia 9 stand out from the crowd at MWC19. The smartphone’s rear also shows branding for Zeiss, Nokia, and Android One. It’s a daring risk that HMD has taken with this setup, but if the camera software and the actual operation turn out to be as attention-grabbing as the hardware then the Nokia 9 PureView could end up trumping its famous rivals.
