The 2018 Nokia flagship device could have a rotating camera developed by Zeiss.

The source of the new rumor suggests the Nokia 10 will feature a full-screen design with 18:9 aspect ratio display, even though the exact resolution hasn’t been confirmed just yet. In terms of design, the smartphone is said to feature a ‘double-glass’ (both front and back) design to support wireless charging. The Nokia 10 is believed to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 SoC processor.

The mass production of the handset is believed to begin sometime in the mid-2018. While there is no confirmed information regarding the exact release date, sources suggest the phone could arrive as early as IFA 2018 in Berlin later in the year.
