A dual camera setup has become the new standard for flagships and premium smartphones. While Nokia 8 had dual-camera with monochrome and RGB sensors, HMD Global's ultimate flagship Nokia 9 may come with wide angle and telephoto lens – at least that's what the Android Oreo Beta update for Nokia 5 has claimed.

APK package of the Android Oreo beta update for Nokia 5 has reportedly unravelled an interesting thing that will spur the interest of Nokia fans. Nokiamob has reported that current camera version supports 2X optical zoom and wide angle mode. It is also seen with 1/500-1s shutter speed and ISO range from 100 to 2000. But these features are not compatible with the Nokia 5, not even the Nokia 7 and Nokia 8, so it could be taken as a hint that it may be seen in the upcoming Nokia 9.

The Nokia 9 is expected to be unveiled in January next year before releasing it into the market a few weeks later, perhaps at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona which will take place in February. However, Chinese website My Drivers site has claimed that the device will be launched on January 19, 2018, along with the Nokia 8 (2018). 

It may be mentioned that the Nokia 9 is expected to sport either a 5.46-inch or a 5.5-inch QHD OLED edge-to-edge display with 18: 9 aspect ratio and 1,440x2,560 screen resolution, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Snapdragon 845 processor, run on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, and come packed with a 6GB/8GB RAM, a 64GB/128GB internal memory (with microSD card slot).

Reports also have it that the handset will feature a dual 22MP main camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a 12MP front-snapper or a dual 13MP+13MP camera with Zeiss Optics on the rear, a 13MP front- snapper, and a 3,800mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 support.
