Nokia has raised the bar for cameras long back with its dismal failure of a phone, Nokia 808 PureView. Regardless of the poor reviews for the phone which can all be conveniently blamed on the Nokia Symbian OS, the camera was the only USP of the phone. A 41 MP sensor for the camera with a Pureview function was a bliss to use. What if you had the power of a "Mega" Camera on a better OS? Nokia has plans to surprise you.
A new Windows 8 Powered Nokia Lumia phone is being experimented to have the 41MP camera. Nokia on its blog wrote that testing for the phone, codenamed Nokia EOS, was being checked with both quad core and dual core processors. With the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Quad Core chip, the battery's juice didn't last decently and it was discarded. With dual core phones, the phone performance would be tested and a new phone will soon be in market with the elite elements to add to your experience of Windows 8.
More to the story, the camera will have the feature of variable aperture for better performance in differing lightings. A Xenon and a LED flash will find their way onto your camera for better shots. 2K and 4K recording for the device is also being tested though it has not seen positive results yet. , though the report says this feature is not supported currently.
Other specifications of the phone are rumoured to be an AMOLED screen, 1280x768p resolution, FM Radio, external storage, microHDMI among others. Initial release will be on contract in the US with AT&T only but within a couple of months a global release will ensure maximum reach for the phone.
Earlier, Nokia Lumia 920 had the PureView technology but the camera sensor was nowhere near as powerful as the 808 PureView.
