Mobile Rumours: Nokia 9 PureView to Have 5 Rear Cameras?

Since mobile phones made the revolutionary jump to the 'smartphone' era, Apple, Samsung, Sony, LG and a myriad of other phone manufacturers have been trying to push the envelope as far as the smartphone technology allows. 

It may seem like in recent years, mobile phones have closely modelled computers in terms of chip and processor upgrades with every new iteration. However, if 2018 hinted at anything, it is that phone cameras are going to be the next frontier, and HMD Global's Nokia brand is jumping into the ring.

Evan Blass, a mobile phone gossip known for leaking mobile phone rumours, tweeted through an image of the Nokia 9 PureView. 

The image itself suggests that the Nokia 9 PureView may have five rear cameras, a flash lens and a seventh unspecified lens. 

The video (below this article), uploaded by MySmartPrice further explains that the Nokia 9 PureView will take "5 simultaneous shots" as well as capture "10x more light". The phone size is also mentioned as a 5.99-inch 2K HDR10 PureDisplay.

The Nokia 9 PureView image also contains the 'AndroidOne' logo, further strengthening the phone propositions of the Android initiative. The main benefit to Android One is that the phone will get two years of guaranteed updates and users will get them before non-Android One mobile devices as well.

You will also notice in the images that there is a significant amount of bezels both above and below the screen as well, which won't please those who are looking for the bezel-less devices.

Previous Nokia 9 rumours have also suggested that the Nokia 9 PureView will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 System-on-Chip (SoC) as well as Fingerprint-on-Display technology. 

Considering that the Nokia 9 PureView is hinted to be the brand's next flagship mobile phone, the five rear cameras may sound like a fantastic proposition for those who wish to partake in photography on-the-go. However, the Snapdragon 845 SoC is not the latest iteration in that line of system-chips, and the phone is also lacking the bezel-less designs that the other phone brands seem to be aiming towards.

Until Nokia or HMD Global make an official announcement, we will wait and see.
