Nokia teaser hints of new high MP camera to be announced at MWC 2012
A Nokia teaser video made for MWC 2012 shows a number of photographs with the tag line "Get ready to capture a pure view". The photos each displayed what could be a certain new feature for an upcoming high MP camera on a new Nokia handset; these features included pure definition, pure depth and pure detail. Earlier this month, Forbes said that the Finnish based manufacturer would be launching at least one high-end phone at Barcelona with a software feature usually found only on high-end models.

The Nokia N8 sports a 12MP camera and there has been some speculation about two successor models, one powered by Symbian and the other by Windows Phone. If all of the rumors are based in truth, we will be looking for a high-end successor to the Nokia N8 with a new "Pure View" camera with at least 12MP or higher. And we should see this device introduced in about a week at MWC 2012 with a Windows Phone variant and one powered by Symbian.

We will be in Barcelona for MWC 2012 to bring you the best and most complete coverage of the expo. The festivities kick off off February 27th.

hm.. i was seriously considering a lumia 900, but if these pics are from the actual phone, it might be worth the wait… they really need to get that lumia to att, otherwise it will be way behind

Sweet looking images. Was going to survive with the cracked screen of my phone till the end of my contract, but a device carrying this camera might prompt me to buy it off-contract.

I agree... This one would still be Symbian. After all, Windows Phone 7 has a lot of hardware restrictions.

The HTC Titan running WP7 currently has a 16MP camera. For the most part, the camera isn't one of the things that is limited by WP7, the only exception being 1080p video recording as that is largely dependent on having a better processor than the single core processors WP7 phones currently have.

Dude, that doesn't necessarily make it a good camera...

So what? It has 16 mp but photos are not even comparable to S II. HTC cannot make good camera modules. They don't know how and this 16 mp model is the best example.

My point wasn't that the Titan 2 has the best quality camera, I was just pointing out that there is no such camera quality restriction on WP7 as rex1213 suggested...
