Slimmer Nokia PureView megapixel cameras on the way?
When the Nokia 808 PureView was first announced, it was its 41-megapixel camera sensor that caught the eye. Unfortunately with such a large sensor comes the extra bulk necessary for such photography prowess. That’s why Nokia’s thinking about introducing new, slimmer models down the pipeline.
The Nokia 808 PureView isn’t in shops just yet. The 41-megapixel camera phone should be with us next month. The main talking point is of course that massive sensor and the PureView camera technology inside, letting users take stunning 41-megapixel photos, condensed into a 5-megapixel shot with no loss of detail when zoomed in on.
As impressive as it all sounds, the Nokia 808 PureView is hardly the most pocketable of smartphones. That’s why we’re likely to see slimmer versions in future, Vesa Jutila, head of Product Marketing for Nokia’s 808 PureView told Visit Engadget .
Though the new devices, in Jutilia’s words “would not necessarily have the same 41-megapixel sensor”, it is a possibility that Nokia has apparently been exploring. We cannot help imagine that it’s a certainty. Why let that awesome PureView technology go to waste?
And although Nokia 808 PureView runs on Nokia Belle software, it seems likely that any slimmer versions are likely to run on the Windows Phone operating system. They may arrive sooner than we think.
Nokia’s Senior Vice President Jo Harlow recently revealed to a Finnish newspaper “it will not take very long” for the technology to reach Windows Phone, paving the way for possible Nokia Lumia PureView Windows phones. Would you buy one?
