Nokia’s Putting Monster 41-MP PureView Cameras in Lumia Windows Phones

By // June 13, 2012 // Posted in Gear & Equipment, Photography

Nokia’s 41-megapixel PureView camera sensors take humongous photos that actually look pretty great. And they’re coming to Nokia’s Lumia Windows Phones, according to Nokia.

Talking with Howard Forums, Nokia USA President Chris Webber said “you can expect we’ll be bringing PureView technologies to the Windows Phone platform in future Lumia devices.” Which is good news, since the Lumia’s Carl Zeiss optics were much-hyped, but not really up to snuff with the best cameras in phones, like the iPhone 4S, the HTC Amaze, or newer models like the One X.
