Nokia Windows Phone with 41MP PureView camera render leaks, flaunting high-end specs

Nokia Windows Phone with 41MP PureView camera render leaks, flaunting high-end specs
Recently we had a tipster sending us what he claimed is an exclusive look at a non-final poster for Nokia Lumia devices with Windows Phone 8, and now from the Wild West of the Chinese blogosphere comes a render, or should we say a concept of a Nokia Windows Phone with the 41MP camera found on the Nokia 808 PureView.

The shape of the newest leak mimics the shape contours we saw in our poster tip, wider at the top and narrower at the bottom, but what we are actually salivating over, besides the groundbreaking camera, are the specs. They do sound like wishful thinking, but we know that multicore chipset and HD screen support will come with Nokia Windows Phone 8 devices, so we cross fingers these have a modicum of validity inside.

How does a 4.3" Curved Glass display with HD resolution sound to you? Pretty good, you say? Well, add to this a dual-core Snapdragon S4 of the boosted graphics Pro" variety with Adreno 320 GPU, and there will hardly be anything to complain in terms of specs from a Windows Phone anymore. 

1080p video capture and the Rich Recording sound tech come without saying along with the 41MP PureView sensor, and this Nokia Windows Phone 8 is thus shaping to be a winner. Speaking of shapes and colors, please insert your own joke about what we are seeing in this render.

I don't think this the real deal. It cannot be. Such extreme and bulky design is not what is to be expected of a phone who bears their flagship imaging technology. I'd say this might be some cheaper PureView version aimed at younger kids with a lower budget, possibly with a lower sensor to it. On those pictures, it's not even pocket friendly. The REAL 41mpx PureView phone model will hold the standards higher, and will come in the shape of a normal phone (with added bump for the sensor). Just like the 808 model.

All in all - I call these images fake or just early prototypes of a phone they used to try out the PureVIew technology in Windows Phone. Let's all pray it is so ...

If the screen is 4.3 inches and the phone is shaped like that then this will be huge!!!!!! Who would want a phone that thick and huge? They should just keep their design similar to the 900 but call it the 1000 or something. But still a cool concept.

Great looking phone for outdoorsy sporty types but would be really good with a dedicated rugged action type tablet on which to download pictures and videos. Interesting. To see how it would work as a stand alone device. Talk of this coming out on a Windows platform are probably correct. However it will probablybe atleast another 12 months before such a device becomes reality.

Except for the strong curvature of the screen and the bulk at the bottom of the device, it looks good. I'd love a PureView Nokia that can dual-boot for WP8 and Symbian Carla+...

They look like those water resistant cameras or something. Not a fan, but knowing Nokia this is not a final product.

Nokia sure knows how to make some ugly ass phones, but with those specs I can forgive.

i like the specs and i like that it has PureView but it's just so ugly! if i were to get a Windows Phone it would probably be between a high-end HTC with a 16MP Camera, Beats Audio, S4 w/ Adreno 320 & an HD Display or a high-end Nokia w/ their PureView Camera, S4 w/ Adreno 320 & an HD Display.
