Nokia has announced that its upcoming Lumia Windows Phone products will come with the Nokia PureView camera technology.
The Finnish phone maker introduced its PureView technology at the Mobile World Congress in February with the launch of its 808 PureView, a Nokia Belle OS smartphone that touts a 41-megapixel rear-facing camera. However, customers were not so eager to grab the device, especially when it only runs on Nokia’s own mobile operating system, which is why the company wants to bring the cameras to Windows Phone devices.
“We have stated that we plan to use PureView imaging technologies to deliver high-end imaging experiences in future Nokia products. Since Nokia is committed to Windows Phone as its primary smartphone platform, that includes plans to bring PureView to Lumia over time,” said a Nokia representative.”PureView represents the highest category of smartphone imaging from Nokia, of which the Nokia 808 PureView is only the first example. All PureView innovations will be based on a combination of high-resolution sensors, high-performance optics and Nokia-developed algorithms to create unique smartphone imaging experiences.”
The spokesperson concluded, “We look forward to revealing more in future, but for now we are focused on rolling out the Nokia 808 PureView to markets around the world.”
For those who are eager to grab the technology regardless of its OS, the Nokia 808 PureView is set to hit shelves starting next month.
