Do we really need a 41-megapixel Nokia Lumia Smartphone? Or is “need” all relative when considering something so undeniably cool?
It looks like Nokia are planning a comeback in the mobile phone market where, let’s face it, they’ve been somewhat dwindling in recent years. At one time many years ago Nokia was almost a byword for mobile phone; in the smartphone market however, they have almost been unseen. If rumors are true however, Nokia may be looking to release a smartphone that may just change the market.
We already know that Nokia’s ongoing project is a smartphone working on the Windows Phone 8 platform. Nicknamed Eos, the smartphone is likely to be at the top end of the current Nokia Lumia handsets and the technology associated with it, such as PureView and Carl Zeiss lenses, may well put this handset head and shoulders above others on the market.
So what does all this technology mean for the consumer? Well, a forty-one mega pixel sensor together with the aforementioned lenses and PureView means that taking, and editing photographs will be a different experience altogether. The level of detail this will make for is quite astounding. You will be able to shoot a picture, zoom in on the photograph after it has been taken, crop it down to the required size and save it without affecting the quality of the image. The detail retained by the image will be quite remarkable. The technology allows a full 7 pixels to be captured and compressed into one. Pretty impressive.
The smartphone will also come complete with full High Definition and Nokia Rich Recording. This will ensure that both visual and auditory quality is a high as possible. Indeed the sound quality is akin to that of a CD.
Rumors are that Nokia will debut this new smartphone at the Mobile World Congress next month and announce the intended release date shortly afterwards. There are many people out there who are looking to see if Nokia can change the face of the mobile market and become a viable contender in the smartphone race of 2013.
