  • A new leaked image shows a Nokia smartphone with five rear camera lenses.
  • This is the same design that appeared in sketches of a Nokia device that leaked earlier this year.
  • The five lenses would reportedly play different roles, like telephoto, black and white, and color.

A new smartphone from Nokia may be taking the dual smartphone camera trend one step further.

The phone, which appears in a new leaked photo, has five camera lenses on the back of the device. This is the same design that appeared in sketches of a Nokia phone leaked earlier this year.

It's not clear why a smartphone would need five camera lenses, but The Next Web reports that the lenses would each have a distinct role, like telephoto, black and white, color, and something it calls "multi-lens pixel synthesis." The phone also has what appears to be a flash and some sort of focusing apparatus.

According to IT Home, the Chinese site that leaked the image, the device is likely the Nokia 9 or Nokia 10. The phone has both Nokia and Zeiss branding, but there's a good reason for that: as The Verge explains, HMD Global - a Finnish company that now produces Nokia phones - started working with Zeiss in 2017 to put its camera lenses on Nokia phones.

HMD Global isn't the only company seemingly working on a futuristic multi-lens smartphone. Light, a startup known for its 16-lens camera, reportedly plans to unveil a smartphone with up to nine lenses later this year.
