Nokia “Daredevil” leaks give us our first look at the mysterious smartphone

Written by Hamza Zakir ·  1 min read >

Nokia doesn’t make too much noise in the world of smartphones, save for the 9 PureView which made waves earlier this year for being the first device to host five rear cameras. This time around, the Finnish company appears to be all set to come up with yet another unconventional flagship, and thanks to recent leaks, we finally know exactly what this device is going to bring to the table.

While this upcoming smartphone does not have any official name yet, the meta description from the leaked photos has termed it the Nokia Daredevil, and if anything, the camera arrangement suggests that the name is very appropriate.

The smartphone hosts a bold camera setup with three shooters arranged in a square configuration but placed in a circular module at the back, which gives it an admittedly cool futuristic feel. Additionally, the main module also consists of an impressive 48MP sensor and has an aperture of f/1.8.

Posted on Baidu, the leaked photos go on to reveal a notch at the front as well as the Android OS. The camera interface hasn’t changed all that much, except for the presence if a toggle between the wide-angle camera and the regular one.

One can also see a USB-C port, as well a button on the left side that is specifically for the Google Assistant in all probability. The fingerprint sensor is positioned at the back of the device, which suggests that the screen is a liquid crystal display. Furthermore, the device is expected to be an upper-midrange phone powered by either a Snapdragon 710 or Snapdragon 730 chipset.

We don’t have any more information as of yet, but if the photos themselves are anything to go by, this is easily going to be the biggest thing for Nokia since the 9 PureView. And lastly, fingers crossed for Nokia keeping “Daredevil” as the device’s final name.
