Upcoming Nokia Superman phone focuses on quality selfies?

According to The Verge, one of Nokia's unannounced upcoming smartphones (the one bearing the codename Superman) is going to be the best Lumia for selfies. The phone is currently being developed with a 5-megapixel camera gracing its front. This is substantially better than most phones' ho-hum 1 to 2MP snappers in terms of megapixel count, but HTC did beat Nokia to the figurative race with the HTC One M8's 5MP front-facing camera.



Additionally, Chinese vendors have already managed to put 5MP, even 8MP front cameras in their products, and last week we heard that the iOcean X8 is coming with the especially welcome addition of auto-focus, so Nokia won't be getting innovation accolades this time. Regardless, it's nice to see more vendors raising the quality of their front-facing shooters.



We also learn that the Lumia Superman will feature a 4.7-inch display and is shaping up to be another Windows Phone 8.1-based mid-range offering. It is expected to come later this year. In addition, we're waiting for an entire serving's worth of Nokia devices codenamed Goldfinger, Ara, Leo, Moonraker, Onyx, Peridot, Tesla, and Vantage. It is unclear, however, whether they will bear the Nokia logo.

This whole selfie thing is really taking off. o.O Still wonder why the Oppo N1's idea didn't take off. Make some modification and that rotating camera will be pretty cool to use

Goldfinger is under Nokia development. So don't know from Nokia or ms. Goldfinger will blow away other phones.

Based on the latest form Benedict Arnold Elop, MS won't be using the Nokia moniker much longer. Therefore, I doubt the new phones will be Nokia-branded. Lumia branding is another matter, though. Lumia has a brand identity that I suspect transcends Nokia.

I never use the front cam. Even when I take selfies I use the rear camera lol.

It is safe for Microsoft not to change the name as Nokia is more popular than Microsoft in terms of customers mind

Agreed, many people still believe that Windows is a brand not an OS, and they know nothing about Microsoft.
