Nokia to Play Full House with New Smartphone Camera Tech this Year

January 14, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Though most of the manufacturers have been pumping up their smartphones with whatever they can find these days, Nokia has preferred to remain happy with what they have in mind.

Yes, these mobile giants now have plans to incorporate software tweaks and better internal lens filters to improve their image quality once and for all.

So with no visible camera hardware changes, Nokia is definitely going to bang out high quality photos and videos from 2013 onwards. They have already stole hearts with their PureView technology and soon the tech world will get to see the amalgamation of PureView in Nokia’s Windows phones as well.


All these tiny surprises were let out by none other than by  Chris Weber, Nokia executive VP of sales and marketing, and he seemed very promising about all this. The company has given us a glimpse of what it is up to with their flagship Windows Phone, the Lumia 920.

Using advanced floating lens technology, the PureView camera in the Nokia Lumia 920 takes in five times more light than competing smartphones without using flash, making it possible to capture the best pictures and videos even at night.

The company has also combined the latest generation of Back Side Illuminated (BSI) sensor, optics from Carl Zeiss and a high power short pulse dual LED flash to create bright, beautiful photos at night as well as indoors.

By modelling the complex nature of human handshake, Nokia has been able to optimize the new Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) system to provide the best possible stabilization when the phone is handheld.

Nokia really expects smartphone cameras to get more intelligent than digital cameras so that in future both devices will become one and life like photos will be a reality in all the images snapped by every consumer.
