Nokia made a big splash today with the introduction of the Lumia 920 smartphone. While there were a number of very cool features that were demoed on the Windows Phone 8 device, by far the biggest response was for the PureView photo support.
Today, Nokia also released a new white paper on their PureView efforts, which began earlier this year when the company launched the 41 megapixel 808 PureView, running on Symbian.
The highly technical paper goes over some of the features and hardware that Nokia has put into the camera of the Lumia 920. The paper states:
This time the sensor is purposefully of a lower resolution – 8.7mp, the optics are focused on providing the best possible low light performance in a beautiful product, whilst the image processing capacity will enable in the future new capabilities - that the combination of optics and sensor enable.
The paper includes details of the new image stabilization features in this version of PureView, along with being able to take impressive images in low light conditions. It certainly looked impressive when we saw the examples at the Nokia press conference and it's sure to be one of the biggest selling points, if not the biggest, for the Lumia 920 when it is released.
