Nokia PureView Windows Phones will take big pictures

Posted May 27, 2012 by Stuff Staff in News

Nokia 808 PureView

The Nokia 808 PureView‘s camera takes whopping 41MP photos, but cramming those Carl Zeiss optics into a smartphone means forgoing the slimline shells seen on other smartphones. But Nokia‘s going to send PureView to fat camp, telling Engadget that it’s considering plans to create slimmer phones using the PureView brand.

Now, making a slimmer PureView phone would mean ditching the 41MP camera that’s the hallmark of the 808 PureView – but Nokia would still use the same Zeiss optics and oversampling techniques to make other PureView phones worthy of the name.

Nokia’s keeping schtum on the possibility of a Windows Phone Lumia PureView. But let’s be honest, it’s pretty much a dead cert – future PureView phones are unlikely to come packing the 808’s outdated Symbian OS.
