The new Nokia Camera app on the Nokia 5 smartphone reveals that the upcoming Nokia 9 smartphone will feature a telephoto and a wide-angle camera lens. HMD Global recently started rolling out Android Oreo beta build for the Nokia 5 smartphone. Nokiamob dug around in the new camera app’s code on the Oreo beta and discovered that apart from a new simplified UI, it supports telephoto camera mode with 2X optical zoom and also features a wide-angle mode. 

Nokia Camera v8.0200.20 app also comes with additional icons for controlling shutter speed. Users can control shutter speeds between 1/500s and 1s along with the ISO option (100-2000). However, the new features cannot be accessed in the current app version. The report says it’s due to the hardware limitations related to telephoto and wide-angle modes and also because the features aren’t ready yet. Other Nokia smartphones like the upcoming Nokia 9 or the Nokia 8 2018 edition could come with a wider range of ISO and shutter speed settings and might also sport some new settings.

Going by the above information, the upcoming Nokia 9 is speculated to sport a dual camera setup with one telephoto and another wide angle lens. The smartphone is expected to feature a thin-bezel design with a fingerprint sensor on a glass back. It could feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED QHD dual-curved display and is speculated to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with 6GB of RAM. 

The Nokia 9 is also expected to be IP67 water and dust resistant and a previous report suggests that the smartphone will be priced at 3699 Yuan (Rs 37,000 approx directly converted) for the 6GB RAM/64GB ROM model and 4199 Yuan (Rs 42,000 approx directly converted) for the 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant.
