Nokia teases Pure View: Nokia N8 successor awaits

Nokia has fuelled rumours of a successor to its 12-megapixel Nokia N8 phone by releasing a trailer for something called Pure View. The video ends by asking viewers to “Get ready to capture a pure view.” Ahead of MWC 2012, it’s looking increasingly likely that Nokia has another turbo-charged camera phone lined up, rumoured to be the Nokia Pureview 808. Coincidence? Unlikely…

The video also features captions such as “Pure detail” and “pure definition” that suggesting that Nokia is about to unleash another mega camera-phone soon. Very soon, in fact. The video ends with the Nokia logo and a 27 February date.

Nokia has yet to confirm what the trailer is for exactly, but put two-and-two together and it’s looking more likely that we could see Nokia release a camera phone that surpasses even the 12-megapixel talents of the Nokia N8.

Should the Pure view does turn out to be a new phone, it is unclear whether the new handset will fall in with Nokia’s Nokia Belle Symbian range or the latest addition to Nokia’s Windows phones. Rumours suggest the former, as Nokia plans another stab at revolutionising smartphone photography.

MWC 2012 kicks off on 27 February, also the day of Nokia’s announcement. We’ll be sure to bring you all the developments from the unveiling when they happen. Watch this space.
