Recently, the manufacturer of Nokia smartphones - HMD Global - received a patent for an unusual camera system with five lenses. It is planned to be used in the future by the flagship Nokia 10, but the rear panel of the smartphone will not resemble the revolver drum, as some suggested.

How it works?

Based on the rumors, the regulars of the Chinese community of Nokibar created a realistic rendering of Nokia 10. The camera will have only two cameras, but inside the case there are additional lenses. They can rotate in a circle, changing the focal length of the upper module (for example, for optical zoom in or wide-angle shooting). Not for nothing did HMD decide to cooperate with the well-known manufacturer of optics Zeiss. The camera will be the center camera. In addition to the flash, the patent mentions a certain innovative sensor (black circle on the right).

In theory, everything looks much more interesting than systems with a variable aperture in the Korean flagship Samsung Galaxy S9 / S9 +.

It is expected that Nokia 10 will receive an elongated display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9, a powerful Snapdragon 845 processor and a glass case. On the prices and timing of the release is not known.
