A NOKIA phone with at least six cameras has been revealed thanks to a leaked promotional video.
The handset hasn’t been officially unveiled by Nokia, but is now public knowledge thanks to a marketing gaffe.
It depicts a handset called the Nokia 9 PureView, and appears to be a high-end, flagship-grade device.
Fans have been expecting Nokia to show off the new gadget in January or February this year.
But almost every detail about the new phone has now been revealed thanks to the promo video.
The most notable new feature on the phone is the huge array of cameras.
There’s at least one snapper on the front of the phone, and five more cameras on the back.
HMD Global – the company that makes phones under the Nokia brand – appears to promise that the phone can take five images at once.
These images can then be combined to create one very attractive photo with the best possible detail.
This “penta-lens” setup is also expected to offer seriously impressive low-light performance, meaning you’ll be able to take stunning snaps in dark conditions.
HMD Global seemingly claims that the Nokia blower can capture up to 10 times more light than camera sensors on a regular smartphone.
Smartphone makers are battling fiercely over camera tech to win over customers.
Apple recently upgraded the iPhone to include two cameras on the back, but we’ve seen phones from rivals Huawei and Samsung with three and four rear-facing snappers.
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to conjure up new smartphone features, so improving the camera is a solid tactic.
HMD isn’t just pinning its hopes on the camera, though.
The Nokia 9 PureView appears to have a host of impressive hardware on board.
For starters, the phone looks to be powered by Qualcomm’s seriously fast Snapdragon 845 chip – the same processor on board the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and OnePlus 6T.
It also seemingly boasts a generous 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which should be plenty for even smartphone power users.
The screen is expected to measure a large 5.99-inches (about the same size as the iPhone XS), with a pixel-dense 2K image resolution.
The video also reveals that the phone has a fingerprint scanner built underneath the display, allowing you to unlock your phone quickly and easily.
