We have already seen images of the Penta-Lens camera module on the back of Nokia 9 protos. Now, we earlier posted about an official teaser video and a Zeiss patent that hint at HMD going for the multi-lens Zoom camera tech from Zeiss.
Nokia Mobile twitter account has re-posted the same video that features this multi-lens Zoom camera demo after a long gap. This video posted by Nokia Mobile and Zeiss when the new partnership between HMD and Zeiss was announced last year. This video interestingly features a rotating camera with lenses with varying focal lengths.

Zeiss has patented a “Miniature zoom camera” with multiple lenses arranged in a circular manner. These multiple lenses can rotate and come in focal path of a fixed primary lens and detector. This by design will help in changing the focal length and providing with a large zoom range. The patent does mention that this is meant especially for Mobile Phones.
So, what do you think? Is Nokia Mobile now teasing Nokia 9 totting the Penta-Lens camera?
