Earlier this year, Nokia launched the 808 PureView smartphone, with its in-house Symbian OS and, more importantly, a 41 megapixel camera inside. Later, a leaked image showed that the PureView camera technology could be coming to Nokia's Windows Phone-based Lumia lineup of smartphones.
While Nokia has never officially confirmed plans for a PureView-based Lumia, the company strongly hinted today in an answer to a fan's Twitter message that we will finally get a Lumia PureView announcement soon. The message stated that fans should "... just keep your eyes and ears open in the next coming weeks...."
That's more than likely a reference to a press event that both Nokia and Microsoft will be holding in New York City on September 5th, where it is almost certain that the latest Lumia smartphones, powered by Microsoft's Windows Phone 8, will be officially revealed.
Having a high megapixel camera attached to a Windows Phone 8 device would certainly give Microsoft a big bullet point in its favor compared to iOS and Android devices.
Neowin is scheduled to attend the New York City press event in just 15 days and we will bring you all the information from Microsoft and Nokia's announcements first hand.
