The Nokia 10 could feature a rotating penta-lens camera setup, if rumor on the street is to be believed. If HMD Global can pull it off, it will be the first major camera advancement for the brand since the Lumia 1020.

While Nokia is still hard at work in launching the Nokia 9 this year, we are already getting to hear rumors about the Nokia 10. The Nokia 10 will be first true camera-centric smartphone that will supposedly be the successor to the Lumia 1020. If reports are to be believed, the Nokia 10 could implement a rotating penta-lens system co-developed by Zeiss that will bring the necessary lens into focus according to the scene being composed.

Nokia has always emphasized on imaging quality and the older Lumia line was a testament to this. The Lumia 920 started the whole optical image stabilization (OIS) trend that we take for granted today. The Lumia 1020 followed it up with a monstrous 41 MP sensor that first debuted in the Nokia 808 PureView. Looks like HMD Global will continue Nokia's traditional excellence in imaging with the Nokia 10. Although it features 5 lenses, it will apparently still look like a dual-camera setup. The assembly will bring in the required lenses into focus depending on the lighting conditions and the required zoom. The possibilities of such a system can be endless, if it does indeed materialize. The drawings also show the fingerprint sensor to be positioned below the camera assembly. 

Apart from the conceptual drawings, nothing else is currently known about the Nokia 10. The handset would obviously sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. However, HMD could be expected to make an announcement sometime during IFA 2018 and make the handset available between Q4 2018 to Q1 2019. Meanwhile, we are still having scant details about the Nokia 9 and its likely reveal date. Hopefully, we'll get to know more in the coming months.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
