Nokia photo sensor patent using Graphene

Some are getting fed up with all speculations on how the Lumia 920 could ever offer the same quality if it doesn't offer the same 41MP sensor. But what WPCentral came up with is worth you time I think: a new Nokia photo sensor patent. It's quite complicated stuff so I will only quote some and send you over there soon.

On their blog, they write:  Nokia has filed a patent application for the sensing of photons utilizing graphene technology. Graphene is a two-dimensional material made of a single atomic layer of carbon layers. It allows photo sensors to be smaller than the current crop of CMOS sensor and capture light photons across a broad spectrum of frequencies of visible light.

Combined with the transparency of the graphene layers, this should make the graphene sensors better low-light performers than what we have today. In a nutshell, we are looking at potentially a smaller, thinner, better low-light performing photo sensor that may give us the 41 megapixel Pureview camera without the hump.

However, at the end the author adds: While Nokia seems to be getting a handle on things with the patent filing, I don't think we'll see graphene sensors any time soon. Still the prospect of a smaller, thinner high resolution sensor with better low light performance does sound very appealing."

This is just to show that there are more ways to get things done. I can't wait to hear and see what Nokia has thought of for the further development of PureView technology. You can read the full article here.

Update: I should mention their source as well I guess, it's, they wrote about it more than 2 weeks ago by the way. Still this could be the answer to many questions...
