HMD Global, the owner of Nokia Mobile, is believed to be developing a new Nokia Android smartphone that is banking on a new type of rear camera technology to attract customers. The device reportedly features not just two or three, but five rear camera lenses.

NokiaPowerUser reported over the weekend that it has learned from sources about a new HMD phone that has a retail name of “Nokia 8 Pro.” The “Pro” appears to have been included in the moniker to indicate that it has flagship-level specs, especially when talking about its camera technology.

The Real Likelihood You’re Being Watched Through Your Laptop Camera

  The Real Likelihood You’re Being Watched Through Your Laptop Camera Photo: loginovworkshop/Shutterstock Should You Cover Your Laptop Camera? In our tech-driven world, it’s now obvious that our privacy can be easily compromised. If hackers can penetrate the White House, they can likely crack our personal devices. And yet we still use our phones, laptops, tablets, and more, as if that threat doesn’t exist. But can we really afford to ignore it? (Here are five ways to prevent identity theft at the office.) If you have a modern device capable of getting online, chances are that it has a camera. And if so, there’s a probability that someone is looking for money or a glance at your intimate moments. Such driving factors have made way for a thriving black market for compromised webcams and the videos or photos they can produce. That’s why you may have heard the suggestion to protect yourself by taping over your computer camera and other devices with cameras. (Avoid posting these seven photos on social media.) The tip is not based simply on paranoia. In 2014, the FBI ran its largest cyber operation to date, in which scores of webcam hackers in more than 12 countries were arrested. The program, called Blackshades, gave users access to “photographs and other files on the victim’s computer and a record all of the keystrokes entered on the victim’s keyboard,” according to a report. It allowed them to steal passwords to the victims’ online accounts, and even activate the victim’s web camera to spy on them, all in secret.

As per the sources cited by the news outlet, the Nokia 8 Pro is equipped with five back cameras encased in a rotating module. The penta-lens camera module is rumored to be made possible thanks to German optical systems manufacturer Carl Zeiss.

The mention of a rotating piece clearly means that not all five lenses will work together in taking a single shot. The five lenses could have different focal lengths and apertures, so the Nokia 8 Pro could be used in taking wonderful photos in various situations. Phone Arena surmises that there could be a lens for wide-angle photography, another one for extremely low-light environments, and so on.

The inclusion of a rotating penta-lens back camera system would surely be intriguing to consumers. This could possibly attract sufficient attention in order for the Samsung Galaxy S9 rival to do well on the market. It could also become a signature feature of a series that will start with the release of the Nokia 8 Pro.

Huawei P20 Prototype Reveals Thin Bezel Design

  Huawei P20 Prototype Reveals Thin Bezel Design The Huawei P20 prototype may have also confirmed dual bottom-firing speakers and the absence of a headphone jack.The early prototype for the Huawei P20 was acquired by Android Authority. No information was given on how the site was able to get their hands on the device, but it does seem to be legit. Keep in mind that this is an early prototype of the P20 and that the final product may have some changes to its design.

Aside from the unique camera system, sources are also claiming that the upcoming Nokia flagship could be housing the Snapdragon 845 processor, Qualcomm’s latest premium mobile CPU. The 10nm chipset is said to feature revamped architecture, advanced AI processing, improved security and overall better performance than its predecessor.

The Nokia 8 Pro is also reportedly sporting double-glass design, which means that its front and back would be covered with 3D glass. This is comparable to what is also being rumored for the Nokia 9, which is also known as Nokia 8 Sirocco. If true, this means HMD is equipping its Nokia flagships with double-glass design this year.

There is also a rumor claiming that the Nokia 8 Pro is going to feature an 18:9 display. The same aspect ratio is found on the displays of LG’s flagships from last year, the LG G6 and the V30. Other specs and features of the Nokia 8 Pro are still unknown. However, fans will very likely get a glimpse of its entire spec sheet at Mobile World Congress 2018 though the device is reportedly scheduled for an August-September release period.

Huawei's P20 phones may boast iPhone X-style notches .
In addition to the notches, the Huawei P20 Pro will reportedly come with triple rear cameras.That's because the Huawei P20, P20 Pro and P20 Lite are reported to feature a 18:9 display with thin bezels and an iPhone X-style notch running across the top of the screen, according to VentureBeat. The notched phones were shown in supposedly leaked images of the P20 and P20 Lite tweeted by mobile tipster Evan Blass.
