A video discovered by reputable leaker Evan Blass (better known as @evleaks) appears to show an unannounced Nokia phone. The video was taken down,but the evidence remains.
This is the first time we have seen a Nokia phone with a dual-lens camera setup. It is afeature usually reserved for high-end devices, so there is a decent chance that what were looking at is the rumored Nokia 8 (or 9).
But before you get too excited, do note that the mysterious device doesnt exactly stand out from the rest of the phones in the video. It doesnt have the largest screen, or any interesting design elements, like an edge-to-edge display.
Nokia is expected to release at least three more phones this year, so we’ll just have to wait and see if the unknown cast member ends up being the 7, 8, or 9.
