Nokia apparently confirmed that it could launch a new Windows Phone with PureView camera technology at the Nokia World 2012 on September 5.

To answer the question of a Twitter fan, who said he wishes to see PureView in the next Lumia handset, Nokia said to expect something big in “the next coming weeks”.

There have been many instances in the past that Nokia hinted to carry its top-tier PureView camera technology, which is currently exclusive to its Symbian-powered Nokia 808 PureView smartphone, to the Windows Phone Lumia lineup.

In June, Nokia gave a clue that it plans to do so.

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.

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.

Apart from its high-end camera sensor and underlying technology, specifications of the upcoming Lumia handset/s remain a mystery.

However, it is highly likely they will come with Windows Phone 8, which means we could see multicore CPUs and HD screens popping up.
