Nokia CEO Stephen Elop on PureView Phase 1 and 2: there is much more where that came from
posted by Daniel P. / Sep 26, 2012, 5:59 AM
The interview is worth watching in its entirety, but the most interesting take is that PureView Phase 1 in the Nokia 808 PureView, which brought along lossless zoom and pixel oversampling, and PureView Phase 2, which inserted optical image stabilization in a smartphone for the first time, are just a few of the building blocks for a superior camera experience that Nokia has in store to differentiate itself before the competition.
In the future, we are likely to see additional goodies coming out of Espoo's research labs, but also a mix-and-match of Phase 1 and Phase 2, or a granular application across the price range of Nokia handsets. Be it the software processing algorithm, a scaled down pixel oversampling with less megapixels, or the best of both worlds, we can apparently expect aspects of the PureView tech to penetrate the whole Lumia range going forward.
Stephen Elop was also grilled whether the company is prepping some sort of preferential treatment towards the purchase of a Lumia 920 for those who got a Lumia 900, and he said that the 900 will be supported very well, and acquire new functions with an update, but still they are considering some sort of an upgrade program, due to popular demand.
On HTC, and its flashy 8X and 8S handsets, Nokia's CEO said he is glad that the company leads the way now in Windows Phone design, so that the others seem to be willing to copy the concept, but that also that Nokia has more design surprises in store for its upcoming WP8 pipeline.
- Display 4.5" 768 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8.7 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB
- Battery 2000 mAh(10.8h 3G talk time)
"On HTC, and its flashy 8X and 8S handsets, Nokia's CEO said he is glad that the company leads the way now in Windows Phone design, so that the others seem to be willing to copy the concept" TAKE THAT!!! STEVE JOBS AND TIM COOK!!! nobody will wanna follow your dated black and white trend anymore!!!

That's what i wrote some few articles back... The power of 808+920 will be just amazing, a killer camera-phone! But something tells me phase 3 will not be what we're thinking of...but who cares as long as Nokia keeps the innovation coming. Elop...Nokia is in your hands, don't get Stephen on the company.
