A couple of pictures have emerged of what’s being referred to as a concept phone rather than an actual in-development beast, but it’s still quite the eyebrow raiser.
I speak of the Nokia Lumia PureView, which – as the name suggests – marries Windows Phone and Nokia’s lofty PureView camera tech.
Nokia debuted the Symbian-running 808 PureView at Mobile World Congress in February. It was one of the few genuine surprises of the show, and packs a whopping 41MP camera.
It was presumed that the PureView tech was beyond Windows Phone’s capabilities, but Nokia’s Jo Harlow recently teased: “I can’t say precisely when [PureView will come to Windows Phone], but it will not take very long.”
This concept chap, the Nokia Lumia PureView, is quite an odd looking fellow to say the least. It’s said to have a 4.3in curved glass display with an HD resolution, and a 41MP sensor with Carl Zeiss lens and PureView imaging technology.
Other Nokia Lumia PureView specs include 1080p video recording, a dual-core processor with Adreno 320 GPU, and – wait for it – Windows Phone 8.
Those colours are, uhm, interesting. You want a pink one, don’t you Jan?
