Nokia also to cut jobs, says slow 5G progress not cause for layoffs.

Nokia’s next flagship smartphone “Nokia 9” is being speculated to host a penta-camera setup at the back, according to the leaked images surfacing in the media.

The images suggest that the rear camera system hosts five lenses, an LED flash and an infrared radiation (IR) focusing apparatus.


The roles of these five lenses would be telephoto, black white, colour and multi-lens pixel synthesis, The Next Web (TNW) reported late on Friday.

The smartphone, internally codenamed “TA-1094,” appears to sport the cameras in a flower-like pattern with one shooter in the centre, surrounded by the others along with an approval-seal from Zeiss.

Zeiss has been a long-standing camera partner for Nokia phones and the company has also reportedly “applied for a patent on a miniaturised camera zoom system – which looks similar to the one in the leaked photo,” the report added.

Previously, an image of the “Nokia 9” was shared by tech website Slashleaks which also showed a five-camera setup at the back of a blue-coloured smartphone.

Dual-rear cameras have been a trending fashion in recent smartphones until Chinese electronics giant Huawei launched its “P20 Pro” smartphone earlier this year, featuring three secondary cameras.

There has been no word from Nokia about the specifications or the launch date of its next flaship smartphone as yet. (IANS)

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people

When a baby is born in an Indian household-they invite hijra to shower the newborn with their blessings for their blessings confer fertility, prosperity, and long life on the child. But when that child grows up we teach them to avert their eyes when a group of hijras passes by, we pass on the behaviour of treating hijras as lesser humans to our children. Whenever a child raises a question related to gender identity or sexuality they are shushed down. We're taught to believe that anything "deviant" and outside of traditional cis-heteronormativity is something to be ashamed of. This mentality raises anxious, scared queer adults who're ashamed of their own identity, and adults who bully people for "queer behaviour".

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people. They worship the Hindu goddess of chastity and fertility, Bahuchara Mata. Most hijras, but not all, choose to undergo a castration ceremony known as "nirvana" in which they remove their male genitalia as an offering to their goddess. The whole community is vibrant with hundreds of people with hundreds of ways of expression, the true identity of a hijra is complex and unique to each individual. In India, hijras prefer to refer to themselves as Kinner/Kinnar as it means the mythological beings who excel at singing and dancing.
