Nokia has been promising a smartphone with an industry-busting 41MP PureView rear camera bearing the codename “Nokia EOS”. Evleaks says that it’s nabbed an image of the upcoming phone, which it says will be called the “Nokia Lumia 1020”. One commenter on the photo noted that the time shown on the phone’s screen is 10:00, and because Nokia usually uses the time to indicate model number, it’s odd that the screen doesn’t say 10:20. The image also shows a Nokia Pro Cam app, which would be a nice addition to the powerful camera. Credit: evleaks The phone,... Read more...
It looks like Nokia is working on a Windows Phone that will include the vaunted PureView camera, which is powering Nokia’s comeback attempt. The Verge, which broke the news, expects the upcoming phone to be a Lumia with an aluminum body. The codename for the new phone is EOS. The Nokia 808 PureView is got a lot of props for its camera, but its outdated OS held it back. With Nokia planning to put the camera on a Windows Phone, things are getting interesting. Nokia first started getting attention for its excellent phone camera with the Nokia 808 PureView last year. The camera has a 41MP sensor... Read more...
Damian Dinning, the lead program manager for Imaging Experience at Nokia, has left the company. Reportedly, Nokia took the loss pretty hard, and it’s not hard to see why: under Dinning’s watch, Nokia developed the impressive PureView smartphone camera, and he reportedly helped create a relationship with Microsoft over its Windows Phone imaging technology. As Nokia is all-in with the Windows Phone platform, that relationship is central in some respects to Nokia’s survival (or should we say “thrival”) strategy. According to Amateur Photographer, which obtained a statement... Read more...
Nokia announced the next generation of its smartphones today, the high-end Nokia Lumia 920 and the mid-range Lumia 820, both of which feature beautiful design with bright colors to choose from, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, and the Windows Phone 8 operating system. The 920 boasts a huge 4.5-inch display and an 8.7MP Nokia PureView camera with a Carl Zeiss Tessar lens, which is equipped with two-stage autofocus, LED flash, and serious optical stabilization. (The 820’s camera is nearly as strong, but lacks the optical stabilization feature.) For video, they can both shoot in 1920x1080 HD... Read more...
Nokia's got a lot of work ahead of it if it plans to regain a chunk of that marketshare it lost to Apple, Samsung and the rest of the Android gang over the past few years, but is this the phone to start that process? With the Lumia 900 already confirmed to be stuck forever as a pre-Windows Phone 8 device, the 808 PureView is something cut from a different cloth. It's a Symbian-based phone, and that's an operating system that's largely dated compared to the other modern options out there. But it does something that no other smartphone does, regardless of cost: shoots 41MP images through Carl Zeiss... Read more...
Have you ever wondered what it would take to create a 41MP cameraphone? Nokia just did that, and they announced the 808 PureView at Mobile World Congress last week. There has been tons of hoopla going around regarding the camera portion itself, and while it isn't slated to ship to North America (sorry!), and it's only running Symbian Belle instead of Windows Phone, there's still a lot of interest here. After all, what's stopping Nokia (or anyone else) from putting this insane sensor into the next great superphone? Nokia has today unwrapped some key details behind the device, including a new name:... Read more...
