Nokia 10 to come with penta-camera setup

22 January 2018
The sensors will be in a circle, accompanied by an LED flash.

Anonymous, 04 Apr 2018I assume you've never seen the Nokia PureView 808 or Lumia ... moreJumping in here - yeah, and each one of those had a single huge sensor, and each one was very thick in the camera area. This thing, by the looks of the patent sketch, will have one or two 12mp 1/2.55" that's in wide use today, and then a few smaller ones, depending on the zoom level of a lens.

great, now we'll have 5 camera's with crappy plastic lenses, no OIS, awful autofocus and perhaps even smaller pixels. Just what we need. 5 times the crap that we have today. Way to go Nokia! :-(

sid, 23 Jan 2018that is true. nothing can beat 808 to this day in terms of... moreI'm still using Nokia 808 Pureview until now.
I do my self DIY a frame to place another lens for create a micro photo more awesome.
I'm the only one who have it in the world.
Thanks a lot Nokia.

Nokia new exactly what they were doing with that whole Microsoft thing..
the old Nokia is still the brains here

After elopocalypse, Nokia lost a lot of talent. That HMD team is nothing compared to the one during Elops time.

Anonymous, 22 Jan 2018Had an 808 , it was trashyou were probably tricked into buying a fake

This solves NOTHING.

Manufacturers are struggling real hard to find the new gimmick to sell us hardware. Like really hard.

sid, 23 Jan 2018that is true. nothing can beat 808 to this day in terms of... morenokia lumia 1020 as well until now they capture good quality images on the top quality images. they cant beat them even with the latest phones out there.

Unbelievable, 23 Jan 2018just give us bigger sensors (and xenon flash) already! what... moreBigger sensors means thicker phones, which means fewer sales. Bigger sensors also lack the wow-factor needed to hype up a product.

Akinaro, 23 Jan 2018We talk here about mobile phone, Standard 1 or 2 sensors is... moreSmartphone photography may be casual, but that doesn't mean people don't want quality when the only camera they have available is a smartphone. People want high-quality camera outputs and compact phones. The only way to achieve that is via multi-sensor technology.

And you're wrong. Computational photography has started becoming a thing rather recently, as we only recently had mobile processors powerful enough for it. This goes all the way from basic one-sensor computational photography (Pixel), to two-sensor computational photography (Huawei, Xiaomi, Nokia, etc) and all the way to 16-sensor technology (Light 16). The algorithms for it has gotten great, and the output far surpasses other non-computational variants.

And taking several images in a row may be good for still subjects. But introduce motion or longer shutter speeds and you're doomed. Also there's no distortion because of sensor placement, there's parallax. At least learn what you're talking about before opening your mouth. And it can be accounted for in modern smartphones.

Main point is; we're headed for a future of computational photography and multi-sensor setups if we want thin devices. They can far exceed single-sensor setups, as they are capable of collecting far more light.

Do you remember when you are playing Mobile legend what the voice assistant says whenever you kill an enemy???

  • Unbelievable

just give us bigger sensors (and xenon flash) already! what are these manufacturers thinking?

Nokia 8 takes trash photos. They should bring her+ like algorithmes. And if they would combine them with pure view phones specs, that would be a hit
Imagine 1/1.5. 40 mp sensor with an hdr+ algorithm going on on a background. Sounds just stunning!

FinnishInquisition, 23 Jan 2018You may want to look up computational photography. Combinin... moreWe talk here about mobile phone, Standard 1 or 2 sensors is enough for phone. Even if few years ago phones beat typical cheap cameras in terms of quality, no one really use them for professional photography, 99% of people still use phone to photograph random events, friends, landscapes that they forgot they did, parties with shaky hand in dark place or selfies.
That one 1% are people who try using it in more advanced manner also dont really treat is as main camera, its like pocked knife = it will cut most of thing and have screwdriver but in every day you still prefer normal, proper knife and screwdriver.


As far as computational photography, you realize that its nothing new, and even now in 2018 its not really a thing. Mostly because computational photography need really similar sensors and algorithms used for them are not really that perfect, especially when you need to merge more than 3 images. Its not easy task if you want to keep sharpness of photo and not have distortions all over the image.

Not to mention that modern cameras are fast enough to take even 3 images at the time with different exposure, or white balance, so you dont really need more than 2 cameras for proper computational photography, because one sensor is just better for that, because you dont need to wory about distortions made by differences between other sensors and distortions made by that small perspective difference of sensor placement.
