Nokia’s PureView imaging technology will be making its way ‘very soon’ to Lumia-branded smartphones, VP of Worldwide Developer Relations, Richard Kerris, has revealed.
Speaking to NeoWin, Kerris reiterated a previous announcement by the Finnish giant that PureView Lumia handsets are definitely in the pipeline, stating they will land “very soon”, but did not give specifics as to when.
The Nokia 808, the first handset to debut PureView, wowed tech types everywhere with its staggering 41-megapixel camera, the highest resolution yet for a smartphone snapper.
Previously, Nokia US President, Chris Webb, said the phone-maker will be “bringing PureView technologies to the Windows Phone platform and Lumia devices”, adding that the company is “working with Microsoft to make sure their platform supports the broad set of things we want to do with the PureView imaging."
Despite strong sales within the platform, Nokia’s Windows Phone blowers in the Lumia line have made slow progress against Android and the iPhone. A world-beating camera may just give the range the competitive edge it needs to make a dent.
