Nokia is on its way back to fame in 2019 after being acquired by HMD Global. They might not have the same market share now as they had a decade ago, but they are surely trying to get there. As of late, we have seen many budget and mid-range smartphones by the manufacturer. However, according to new reports, Nokia is working on a premium device as well.
HMD Global Is Preparing a Waterfall-Screen Nokia Smartphone
Recent Nokia devices have been quite simple on the design front with a classic forehead and chin for most of the smartphones. However, it is rumored that the company is working on a smartphone with a radical design. The upcoming Nokia handset is expected to feature a waterfall display with a screen-to-body ratio reaching close to 100%.
The device is also rumored to have 5 rear cameras similar to those on the Nokia 9.1 PureView, which was released way back in February. We also have leaked design renders of the upcoming smartphone which surfaced online recently.
The renders aren’t backed by any proof and were found on social media, so we cannot validate its authenticity. Also, HMD Global hasn’t announced such a device yet. Nevertheless, a waterfall display looks good with the Nokia design aesthetics.
Leaked Waterfall Display Nokia Device Renders
According to the renders, the front of the device will be almost fully covered with a waterfall display due to the thin forehead and chin. The sides of the display extend downward on either side to give a bezel-less look. The thin forehead of the device will contain the earpiece, camera, and other sensors. The bottom of the device will feature a USB-C port, a speaker grille, and a SIM tray but no headphone jack.
The camera setup at the rear of the device gives it a premium feel. The snappers will be housed in a circular housing, which is similar to that of the OnePlus 7T. This setup will be manufactured by Carl Zeiss Optics as indicated by the Zeiss branding on the camera bump.
Aside from the five-camera setup, there will also be a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor beside the camera module to give accurate depth information for images and videos.
As mentioned earlier, these images are unofficial renders which should only be treated as concept images until we hear any confirmation from HMD Global.
