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.
I heard it was going to be a snazzy aluminium 18mp phone. Not 38mp. I guess we have to wait and see for sure, but even at 18mp . This will kick the living daylights out of all others. Yeahhhhh
Rex, 23 Jan 2013You have pureview camera in Lumia 920 and its awesome I think we all know what he means, and so do you...

I'll buy an amazing android phone and a real dslr camera witch ie way better than... moreits funny cause you have to buy a garbage laggy android + atleast 500$ on a cheap DSLR just to keep your ego boosted and away from the most fursious phone maker in the world.
too bad you have some serious self-image issues, otherwise you wont find the need to go out and purchase 20 different items just to NOT have one of the most anticipated phones in the world.
we all feel sorry for you.
you're really pathetic btw.
its very long time since i heard the last nokia phone rumor... keep it up lumia and keep price down also
i dont care. I'll buy an amazing android phone and a real dslr camera witch ie way better than this crap.
cfm69, 23 Jan 2013Guys, I thought we are talking about phone devices here. Why now became a camera? Can we diffe... moreHave you heard about cameraphone??? its a diffirent thing with a camera alone... Thats why we have something called camera phone..
Still the old outdated useless WP8 still the same bad designs and probably old hardware from Nokia and still the marketing gimmick with the PureVew 235235 megapixel sensors..When will you all grow up and realize that even the original PureView was still worse then a 100$ digicam?Tho the effort is appreciated and it just may make the Android manufacturers at least TRY to use decent cameras...
Check out the Pureview 808 review on this site. Look very carefully at the RESOLUTION CHART. What do you see? Lines maybe to around 3100 LPH mark. How much is that in megapixels in this case?
~12,7 MEGAPIXELS. Is that very near the advertised and hyped 41 Mp?
Some of the main reasons for such poor performance are the bayer filter and the limitations of a small lens.
The absolute max for a lens and sensor of this size would have been 25 megapixels, not 38 mp(or the advertized 41 mp).
808 also has poor dynamic range with blown out highlights. The reason for that is the small pixels.

[deleted post]Yeah right!!!!!!
Until now android doesn't have 43mpx camera....what an innovative it is!!!!
Hahahaha what happen to the quadcore and a 2gb ram common get up FANDROID.
Guys, I thought we are talking about phone devices here. Why now became a camera? Can we differentiate a CAMERA and a PHONE? Think guys, there are a lot of DSLR Camera on the market, this is called CAMERA. Phone must be phone. How do you operate lenses of this WP with 38MP Cam?
Mave4484, 23 Jan 2013And seriously, as DSLR Photograpers know, no one..really..no one needs 38mp...15 is alot, 20 i... moreWell it's using the megapixels for lossless zooming without moving parts. I think a lot of people will benefit.
I will switch to WP from android only if they put purview camera in WP.. Donno why Nokia chose to put the best camera in the very bad symbian OS phone...
