Nokia is Planning a New, Thinner PureView Phone
The Nokia 808 PureView is widely considered as a phone with the biggest camera sensor ever. Revealed earlier at the MWC 2012, it packs a whopping 41Mp sensor. The Nokia 808 PureView is essentially a proof of concept and as such it still uses the Symbian OS instead of the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. Obviously, Nokia is looking for ways to implement the technology into other mobile devices. At its present state, the Nokia 808 PureView is pretty chunky, perhaps because of its 41Mp sensor, which is uncharacteristic of Nokia’s better-than-average designs. A Nokia official said that a new handset featuring the PureView photography is already on the agenda. Nokia also revealed that the PureView technology can be implemented in multiple ways, including combining it with an excellent audio recording capability.
To fit the slimmer design, the sensor size of PureView could be reduced, which allows the whole assembly to fit into a thinner framer. The current standard for high-end device, such as Motorola RAZR and HTC One S, is 8Mp. If Nokia can top this and use Windows Phone 8, the new PureView phone could eventually lead the smartphones pack.
