Leaked image teases Nokia phone with five cameras []

HMD appears to be working on an impressive camera array for a future Android-powered Nokia handset. Leaked design sketches [] and images hint that we could be about to see a Nokia-branded phone with five cameras on the rear. The penta-lens setup first appeared in rumors about a Nokia 10 device earlier this year, and now an alleged photo has leaked [] of the handset.

The camera module includes five lenses arranged in what looks like a circle, with prominent Zeiss branding. HMD Global, the Finnish company that licensed the rights to produce Nokia phones, teamed up with Zeiss [] last year to reunite the Nokia and Zeiss brands for the Android era. HMD has started to use Zeiss optics in its latest Android handsets [], and the lens maker has even patented a miniaturized zoom camera system [] that looks very similar to this leak.

F*** Everything, We're Doing Five Rear Cameras.

But you still have a long way to go [].
