A PureView camera headed to the Lumia lineup soon


A few days ago the Nokia 808 PureView caused a lot of jaws to drop, only to be raised back up again to ask "wait, Symbian?" However, when you take into account that the PureView project started 5 years ago the things become clear - Windows Phone just didn’t exist back then.
Jo Harlow, Executive Vice President of smart devices at Nokia, spoke to a Finnish newspaper saying that the PureView technology is heading to a future Lumia phone. According to her, it shouldn't be too long before such a phone materializes.
Performance shouldn't be an issue - the Nokia 808 uses a single-core 1.3GHz processor with 512MB and it's a custom chip that does all the heavy lifting. That's well within reach of current WP7 phones though they'll have to adjust the processing for a Qualcomm platform.
But, of course, that doesn’t mean a Nokia Lumia PureView phone is just around the corner.
Either way, this phone can't come soon enough. Until then, you can have a look at the camera samples and check out our blog post on how PureView works. There's also our interview with Nokia's imaging guru, Damian Dinning.
