The Verge: "Nokia Lumia 920 offers PureView with 8MP camerasensor"
Newsflash: According to the Verge, the to be announced Nokia Lumia 920 will include wireless charging, 32GB storage, and 8-megapixel camera.
I quote from the article I just saw on
"One rumored aspect of the Lumia 920 is a PureView camera. We can confirm that Nokia will indeed brand its Lumia 920 camera as PureView, but that the camera will be an 8-megapixel one — not the 41-megapixel one found on the company's 808 PureView handset.
Nokia is focusing on marketing the Lumia 920 as PureView thanks to some advancements in image stabilization and camera software that it plans to ship on the device. The front of the device will also include a 1.3-megapixel camera."
So what do we make of all this? There is no comparison with the Nokia 808 PureView, of course - the question is what's left of the term "PureView" if Nokia is going to use just an 8MP camerasensor for it in the new device. With just an 8MP sensor, there won't be much left for pixel oversampling, right? Let's hope this "confirmation" proves to be false after all.
PS. On the other hand (and after giving it some more thought): until we have any confirmation there's no reason to panic, is there? The panic is only showing how much we all care for this new technology. And even if it is a 8MP camerasensor, than still we'll have to wait and see what kind of pictures it shoots. I really think this new technology is too dear to Nokia to let it go te waste.
