Nokia PureView coming to future Lumia handsets

Nokia PureView coming to future Lumia handsets




When the Nokia 808 PureView was unveiled, people were impressed with its massive 41 megapixel camera, but it was a “What the hell?” moment after realizing it is running Symbian instead of Windows Phone 7.


It’s like seeing Stephen Elop driving a V12 super car instead of the Stig. However, since the PureView project started 5 years ago, Symbian was the OS Nokia had at the time.


 

Nokia’s Executive Vice President for smart devices, Jo Harlow, has confirmed that the PureView technology is indeed coming to future Lumia phones. When asked by the Finnish newspaper Aamulehti about when such phones would be released, Harlow answered, “I can’t say precisely when, but it will not take very long.”

The Nokia 808 is already a very capable camera phone under Symbian, but if you really want WP7 with that 41 megapixel camera, may I suggest that you save your hard-earned bucks for the Lumia PureView. Perhaps a Lumia 900 PureView?

  1. There are a lot of gadget these days. If you don’t have a lot of money to be updated with gadgets, I would suggest that choose what is best for you for the next two years.

    Huh!

    What? Sarcasm? Hypocrisy?

    Honestly tell me, would you rather shoot a photo with a 640×480 VGA resolution or 41MP?

    Besides, you comment like an ignorant fool, I surmise you haven’t read about the PureView technology that is involved in using the 41MP SENSOR (yes, sensor, not 41MP image size resolution)

    Let’s just pretend you are just an arrogant ignorant fool, shall we? I’d love to educate you, but I think you’re just not worth it.

    Google it.

    You write a blog yet you don’t even know the proper way to spell “please”

    Pleace mo mukha mo. Hehehe! :D

    Read up the article on PureView before you bash 5 years of research and development, you uncivilized swine. Who’s the troll now? :D

  10. Carl Bytes says:

    Come on, PLEACE don’t ever ever view my blog again, ok? It is not for you. Maybe you’re an English teacher.

    For me, content is more important than grammar or spelling. Besides, blogging is only my hobby and I don’t have time to check my blog, letter by letter because I have work. Check your attitude and visit a psychologist :)

    You come barging in with your disparaging words against a 5 year term of research and technology.

    You are an engineer yourself. How would you feel if someone told you that your work sucks?

    Reality check, man. :)

    I am not attacking his person.

    I am attacking his penchant for ignorance and quick, reckless judgement despite his education.

    Surely you are not blind to read or see it.

    Well maybe love is blind… and who am I to say it ain’t so? :)

    So, from the looks of it, has he resorted to hiding under your skirt, perhaps?

    Or perhaps you pulled him under your skirt?

    Grow up, man! Count bit for bit, byte for byte, word for word. Look at the comment thread and guess who started it all!

    Ok na ba yung pag-review ko ng thread, ko Mr. Internet Smart Guy? :D

    May looks of it ka pang nalalaman diyan, hindi mo naman nakitang naka-skirt ako. :D

  22. benchmark says:

    IMO, 8MP will suffice naman…well maybe for me as an ordinary user, ewan ko na lang sa mga photographers.

    Well probably this high MP would be also nice in surveillance cameras don’t you think?

    Also, imo being a good photographer, it’s not in the device you are using but the great shots you take.

  23. NikeFanBoi says:

    This is out of the topic but I just want to say this.

    I am not an English teacher. Sometimes we complain why other people don’t have any sense of humor. It’s so funny why we become so defensive after being checked/criticized by someone regarding our spelling and grammar.

    Now we retaliate and bash the critic for not having a sense of humor? Look, we don’t have the sense of humor either to laugh at our own mistakes! We would justify our mistakes by saying we don’t care about the grammar and spelling but only for the content!?

    It’s good to have great content in our blogs. Yes the thoughts are good, but if your using the English language without applying the rules for spelling and grammar, then our blog doesn’t LOOK good.

    Well, if we don’t care about spelling and grammar at all, mag-TAGALOG na lang tayo. May Google Translate naman eh!

  24. elmot says:

    Wow, like this new nokia phone…but I think the ultimate test of this phone despite its very impressive specs in megapixel is whether this can compete with the giants in the phone market today.

  25. lawrence says:

    I think Nokia is trying to come up with a product that will be future-proof enough to carry their brand name. If they can’t compete on the smartphone department, at least they’re the best in photography.

  26. aw says:

    nice galeng nemen nokia, astig whooping 41mp….

    @ carl sir wag mo nalang lagyan ng s yung internet….masagwa po eh…>>> INTERNETS??? yun lang hehe

  27. apol says:

    hahahaha..may bago na kaya sa apple… ipad5 with 56 megapixel..

  28. 41 MP? says:

    I am not convinced with the 41 Mp sensor/feature of Nokia. The best way to measure if this is awesome or just plain crap is to have it tested.

    Will it perform very well in lowlight situations? Will it have way better ISO handling performance that is capable of having clean shots comparable with Nikon D7000 (16 MP clean at IS0 3200). The lens of the phone, will it be capable of having large apertures (1.8 to 2.8)?

    Since its a 41 MP “sensor”, it should outperform a D7000 or even a D700 in ISO handling. If it doesn’t and the lens aperture is around 3.5 or lower, then sad to say its crap. I don’t see any value with it unless you are always shooting outside the sun and wants to print billboard size images.

  29. Anonymouse says:

    That is like comparing an MPV with a Ferrari.

    DSLR vs. cameraphone.

    Why not compare it with Sony Mobile cameraphone vs. Nokia 808 PureView vs. Apple iPhone 4S?

    If you can’t just resist, then compare it with Olympus P&S, Canon P&S and Nikon P&S, which seems to be the target market for this phone.

    Search the net, there has already been some comparisons, like in DPReview.
