Nokia releasing 41-megapixel PureView Windows Phone

Nokia will release a new Windows Phone with a 41-megapixel camera next week

Nokia will release a new Windows Phone with a 41-megapixel camera soon, it has been revealed.

The company published a teaser overnight for an upcoming New York event using the tagline "41 million reasons", the same amount of megapixels in a PureView camera.

The new handset is codenamed "EOS" and the media event is scheduled for Thursday, 11 July.

Nokia first debuted its PureView technology early last year on the 808 PureView, one of the last smartphones to run Nokia's Symbian operating system.

The PureView technology on the 808 uses what's called oversampling to combine up to seven pixels into one "pure" pixel when taking typical sized shots (5-megapixels).

Nokia says this eliminates the visual noise found on other mobile phone cameras while at the same time allowing you to zoom in up to three times without losing any detail.

The company says the imaging technology on the 808 PureView took over five years to develop.

Leaked images of the rumoured Nokia EOS smartphone were published earlier this month by US site GSMArena.

The photos revealed a device with a Xenon flash, OLED display, polycarbonate body, and 32GB of internal memory.
