A few days ago, during the Mobile World Congress 2012, the Nokia 808 PureView has attracted the attention of the audience was amazed by the new camera phone with 41 megapixel camera. After the initial enthusiasm, the doubts began to chase: why have the good things on a mobile Symbian operating system that will be abandoned by Nokia?
However, when one considers that the project PureView was born 5 years ago, everything becomes clear: Windows Phone simply did not exist then; Nokia has linked to Microsoft’s operating system last year alone. Jo Harlow, Vice Executive President of Nokia smartphones, told a Finnish newspaper that the technology will be adopted on a future PureView Nokia Lumia, which should be unveiled shortly.
The performance should not be a problem: the Nokia 808 using a single-core processor at 1.3 GHz with 512 MB of RAM and a custom chip that does all the heavy lifting. It is reasonable performance for existing phones already WP7.
