Nokia reportedly will introduce its first Windows Phone 8 (WP8) devices at its Nokia World 2012 event early next month.
According to Bloomberg, the Finnish phone maker aims to uncover its upcoming WP8 Lumia handsets on September 5 during the company’s two-day Nokia World event.
“Nokia plans to announce Windows Phone 8-based handsets as early as next month at its Nokia World event — ahead of an expected Sept. 12 unveiling of the next version of the iPhone — and have them for sale before the year-end holiday shopping season, said a person with knowledge of the matter, asking not to be identified because the plan isn’t public,” reports the news agency.
We have yet to see further information on Nokia’s next-generation WP8 devices, but the phone maker already gave a clue that PureView camera technology will arrive on its Lumia range of 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 Nokia in June this year.
Nokia released the Nokia 808 PureView earlier this year to much fanfare due to its large 41-megapixel camera sensor and Carl-Zeiss optics. The company intends to bring it over to the Lumia lineup.
It added, “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.”
