Nokia to release a 38MP WP EOS phone this year - read the full textThe Nokia 808 PureView was the company’s first PureView smartphone and it still holds the throne as the best cameraphone out there, despite the Lumia 920 challenge. It seems that this is about to change though as the company's Windows Phone camp is going to get its own PureView...

Interesting... If it has floating lens, puremotion hd+ tech, and a non-AMOLED display of HD res, then Imma temporarily forget the existence of the Xperia Z til I get this one. Oh, and LTE btw. :D

> In reply to hail nokia @ 2013-01-23 18:43 from Mfxa - click to readI never said it was not huge news... I say it isnt as anticipated as you may think in your little head, that is because the Lumia line is fresh and new as you stated, but it is not as establish as the iphone or the galaxy series. And there is alot of people (non techies) out there that still needs to be made aware of the Lumia line or even W8.

And the first comment you made was dumb yes. because you basically called the other user an idiot just because he has an android device and a DLSR, instead of getting an all in one like you self.

and that was really IGNORANT and AROGANT

38 mp pv could easily become the symbol of smartphone photography.....its too much for a phone and really amazing zoom.
What i wud like more in a flagship
lighter than 920 (nokia have probably addressd dat issue with the rumoured aluminium body)
support for wallpaper background in only menu(i have seen the aesthetic effects in jolla sailfish-that was fantastic,if something like dat in wp)
ability to forward and backward in songs by tapping on bar
And the most imp-ADD SUPPORTED FREE VERSIONS OF APPS AND GAMES-there r quite few out there.
Ability 2 download media in i.e. And flexibility in instaling xap.people post ur views---------------

Why do still comparing a phone camera which is digital to a DSLR?
It'd be so stupid to say this phone is crap.
If you think this phone is crap, tell me more about the camera of a phone that is better than this nokia.

And please consider that DSLR camera cannot be in your hand always like a phone would when you need a camera immediately to capture a moment.

> In reply to Common_636 @ 2013-01-23 18:35 from RcFM - click to readthats like saying a computer can do much more than a cell phone and i prefer a computer... they're two different markets. thats common sense.. so why compare apples to oranges?

dont compare this to a DSLR because its not.. and its not meant to be. Only fools who just want to come on this thread and justify why this phone is crap come here and talk smack like that. Any honest and open minded person knows that this is far beyond anyy other cell phone camera out. so why not just man up and admit that its good for nokia and microsoft rather than sit here and make childish remarks about what junk it is?

maybe you DONT like this phone.. who cares?nobody cares.. so why not just avoid making arrogant remarks in the first place and go to a thread that talks about something you like rather than seomthing you hate?

... the fact is, this is highly anticipated and highly innovative. because its new, windows is new, nokia is just beginning to pick up momentum with WP8, and because its a complete overhaul of the physical design. maybe as a hater of nokia and WP8, its not highly anticipated, but for open minded non-biased phone users, this news is huge

you have a problem with that? then fix it.

and Besides, persons actually prefer stand alone shooters. Whats with the name calling???

I myself, prefer a stand alone shooter, thus why i own a Canon DSLR. because a DLSR can do much more than the pureview camera, without a doubt, thats not to say the pureview is not a great tech for phones, it is. but like it or not, no cameraphone/phonecamera at the moment can match a good stand alone.

I don't think there is a single wp supported chipset that supports that much megapixels. Snapdragon S4 pro or plus supports upto 20mp. Besides, Nokia catwalk was supposed to be slim. So, how a phone with a massive 41mp camera sensor can be slim? The verge's reports are just Some Nokia fanboy's imagination. Well, then you gotta look at Nokia Lumia 990 concept.
