Nokia 8 Pro Flagship Reportedly Packs A Snapdragon 845 Processor And A Penta-Lens Camera Module


A Nokia flagship smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor is reportedly in the works, and its retail name will be the Nokia 8 Pro.

With the Mobile World Congress 2018 rapidly approaching, leaks and rumors about upcoming smartphones and gadgets have been intensifying. The purported Nokia 8 Pro, however, is reportedly at least six months away from release.

Nokia 8 Pro Flagship

HMD Global, the company who now owns the rights to launch Nokia-branded devices, is reportedly planning to launch the Nokia 8 Pro later this year, most likely in August or September.

According to a new report from Nokia Power User, the Nokia 8 Pro will be one of the company's 2018 flagships. Previous rumors hinted at a Nokia smartphone with penta-lens and Carl Zeiss optics for this year, and the rumored name was Nokia 10. NPU now says that a Nokia 10 might not be in the cards and that the previously rumored handset might, in fact, be this Nokia 8 Pro.

Nokia 8 Pro With 5 Cameras?

Penta-lens would translate to five camera sensors, which sounds a bit crazy. Modern flagships are just gearing up to pack a dual rear camera setup, so five cameras on a smartphone would be a first.

Nevertheless, NPU says that if the tip it received turns out to be accurate, the Nokia 8 Pro will have a penta-lens camera module, as well as the rotating zoom camera technology Zeiss patented last year.

The latest leak also claims that the upcoming Nokia 8 Pro will be one of the flagships that will pack the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor this year.

Other flagships expected to come with the Snapdragon 845 include the Google Pixel 3, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, and the LG G7.

The Nokia 8 Pro is further expected to sport an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 3D glass design both on its front and back. These same features are similar to Nokia 9. The handset will reportedly have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, located just below the camera module, at least according to a leaked sketch.

NPU notes that it received the latest information from a trusted source. However, this is still not a guarantee that Nokia's next flagship will actually hit the market as the Nokia 8 Pro and sport these specifications. A lot can change until the company is ready to make an official announcement. So, in the meantime, take everything with a grain of salt.
