Nokia 9 PureView arrived with Industry-first Penta-Lens camera module and impressed even the professional photographers with its imaging quality. HMD worked with “Light” to give this Penta-Lens camera that uses computational photography for fusing and delivering final image.

Now, as one can expect, HMD not only played with different camera designs before arriving at a final Camera module design but has even patented the design. The patented design for various Nokia 9 prototypes reveal three kind of camera modules as one can see in the images below.

While in two of designs above all camera lenses remain of the same size, in the third one the central one is larger than others. In the two designs where lenses are of same size the position of TOF and perhaps types of cameras differ.

While it is a common knowledge that companies test many prototypes before zeroing it to the final one, it is interesting to see three camera modules getting tested for Nokia 9 PureView. Perhaps, one of them will be featured in the Nokia 9 successor rumored to arrive in Q3 2019.
