Nokia’s Android Flagship With Penta-Lens Camera Design Leaks

Nokia’s Android Flagship With Penta-Lens Camera Design Leaks
The last time we updated you on the status of the Nokia's upcoming Android Smartphone with Penta-Lens Camera, we told you that it was in the works and will be unveiled as early as late 2018. Well, it looks like today we have our first design look of Nokia's Flagship With Penta-Lens Camera.

As you can see in the below sketch, we have a round fingerprint reader located beneath the circular camera module. Previous leak says that the device will feature a bezel-free design and Snapdragon 845 CPU.


The Penta-Lens Camera system features a circular form factor with seven holes, five for camera lenses and two for LED flash. If testing goes right, HMD may think of mass production in April-May, and apparently the device will be unveiled as early as late 2018.

Xiaomi Mi 6X Leaks: Is this the Xiaomi Mi A2 with Android One?

Xiaomi Mi 6X Leaks: Is this the Xiaomi Mi A2 with Android One?
Back in July 2017, Xiaomi announced the Mi 5X for China and rebrandend it as Mi A1 (Android One) for the global markets, which was made official in September 2017 during an event in India.

In case you don't know, the Mi A1 is a part of Google’s Android One program which runs stock Android and will receive consistent software updates for a longer period than other smartphones by OEMs that are not a part of the Android One program.

Today, a weibo user shared what appears to be the back panel and case renders of the Mi 6X (AKA Mi A2), confirming the phone's design. As you can see in the below leaked image, we have vertical dual-cam setup just like the iPhone X.
Confirming the above leak, Slashleaks posted case renders of the Mi 6X which shows edge-to-edge display and confirms the vertical dual-cam setup.
Mi A1 was the replica of Mi 5X, so it is safe to assume that the Mi 6X would be the Mi A2 with Android One. Also the Mi A1 was one of the most successful mid-range smartphone ever, so it makes sense that Xiaomi would want to follow-up last year's Mi A1 with a Mi A2.
