Spotted by, the Nokia Camera v8.0200.20 app on the Nokia 5 Android 8.0 Oreo beta build was torn down, and showed telephoto lens options up to 2x zoom, and wide-angle lens options (seen below).

However, the Nokia 5 doesn't come with dual cameras, so it won't be able to support these features. The clues, ironically, come from the Oreo camera app on the Nokia 5, revealing features that are impossible for that model to support. The upcoming smartphone is expected to come with dual cameras, and now it looks like one of its cameras may have a wide and telephoto zoom lens.

The only dual camera smartphone that Nokia has launched is Nokia 8, and it comes with identical field of view on both sensors.

The other change in the Nokia Camera app is that icons for shutter speed and ISO have appeared. However, Chinese website My Drivers site has claimed that the device will be launched on January 19, 2018, along with the Nokia 8 (2018). The rumors also suggest that Nokia 9 will be coming with a two-camera solution instead of Huawei's P11 which might go on triple rear-camera track.

In addition to these, the Nokia Camera 8.02 has also brought in a new UI that can be seen everywhere from Camera or Video modes to the settings to imaging and video options.

The Nokia 9 is expected to be unveiled in January next year before releasing it into the market a few weeks later, perhaps at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona which will take place in February.

Late October, Nokia introduced Beta Labs which allows users to taste beta Android Oreo on their Nokia smartphones.

The Nokia camera app includes modes that aren't possible on its current phones. If you own a Nokia 5 and interesting in beta testing Android Oreo, then head over to this Nokia. Once you have enrolled yourself, you will be receiving the beta update via the OTA route after around 12 hours.
