Earlier rumors suggested Nokia might be working on exciting new photography technology for its upcoming smartphones, and now a Nokia executive has seemingly confirmed as much. BGR sister site BGR.in interviewed Nokia smartphone boss Jo Harlow, who confirmed that “computational photography” functionality is being investigated for inclusion in upcoming Lumia smartphones. “If you look at where imaging is going, computational imaging is an area of exploration,” Harlow said. “Being able to capture even more data — data you cannot even see with the human eye that you can only see by actually going back to the picture and being able to do things with them.” Halrow added that available computing power had previously been a barrier to bringing Lytro-like technology to smartphones like the company’s Lumia Windows Phones, but “changes in the processing capabilities of smartphones opens it up as an area of exploration.”

Great. Right now if I were getting a new phone and I needed the best camera out there it would probably be a Nokia. They do great hardware.
