Last week at the Mobile World Congress 2012 (Barcelona), Nokia unveiled a smartphone with a 41 megapixel camera. The model has the world under the name “808 PureView” and was officially presented with the operating system of the Finnish manufacturer, Nokia Belle. However, aware that the old platform would be more interesting to consumers, Nokia has decided that, soon, a variant of this model will be launched, this time integrated with the mobile system from Microsoft, Windows Phone.
The information is from the Finnish newspaper Aamulehti . In that regard, it is said that PureView debuted with the operating system Belle because Nokia felt more confident in launching the phone with his powerful camera on the platform where the technology was originally developed.
Furthermore, Nokia says that the current Windows kernel Phone offers several limitations. It is therefore possible that the emergence of a camera phone equipped with 41 megapixels only happen after Microsoft upgrade to version Apollo (which should adopt the same kernel as Windows 8 on PCs and tablets). Until then, consumers who want these 41 megapixel camera in their pocket will have to settle for the ‘old’ Nokia Belle.
