Nokia Launching First Real PureView Windows Phone This Year

According to a recent report, Nokia is hard at work to create the first real PureView Windows Phone powered Lumia device. The handset will feature a high megapixel sensor similar to the one found on the PureView 808. The PureView Windows Phone device will be released and go on sale later this year.

The Verge also reports that Nokia will forego the polycarbonate bodies of the current generation of Lumia devices and will go for a aluminium casing for the PureView Windows Phone device. PureView Windows Phone is codenamed EOS and will be released on AT&T later this year to become one of many Lumia devices with an all new design. Nokia is also rumoured to be working on a Windows 8 tablet which will also be released later this year.

Nokia PureView Windows Phone devices are known for beating anything in the smartphone world when it comes to camera performance. The PureView 808 had a 41 megapixel camera, which is probably the best camera to ever grace a smartphone. The Lumia 920 camera also shared the PureView name but it had a lower resolution camera on par with other flagship smartphones. The low light performance, however, was miles better than any other smartphone courtesy of the backside illuminated sensor and fixed f/2.0 aperture.

The Nokia Lumia 920 camera’s performance was also helped by the fact that Nokia and Microsoft got down and worked together to create an algorithm that improved visual noise and low light performance without affecting the natural look of photos. If this rumor is true, we could see Nokia Lumia PureView Windows phone devices that continue to be the leaders in camera performance.

    Price point is going to be the most important thing. Lumias aren’t the cheapest of devices and add a 41 MP camera and we could be looking at a $1200 phone.

    Just give us a lighter phone next time. 920 is a brick.
