Nokia CEO hints at new PureView Windows Phone 8 models

Nokia logoNokia CEO Stephen Elop appears to have hinted that the company is working on bringing its PureView camera technology to multiple Windows Phone 8 devices some time in the future. PureView is the technology behind the 41-megapixel 808 Pureview smartphone, which was recently released in the United States but features Nokia's now-defunct Symbian Belle operating system. Elop gave no details, but his statement is in keeping with previous indications that PureView would be appearing on Microsoft's forthcoming mobile operating system.

Responding on video to questions asked by visitors to Nokia's booth at Microsoft TechEd in Orlando, Elop noted consumer interest in when PureView might make an appearance on Windows Phone 8.

"Now, we haven't announced any other smartphones with PureView," Elop says in the video (shown below), "but I can say that you will see this technology in devices to come."

Elop's response lends credence to earlier rumors that the company was looking to bring PureView to Microsoft's phone OS. In March, a Nokia executive hinted that the camera technology was bound for Windows Phone, though he gave no additional details. Around the same time, a job posting specifically referencing PureView revealed that the phone maker was looking to bring in new programmers, likely with the goal of porting the technology to a Microsoft OS.

That job posting led some observers to believe that the 808 PureView would launch in the US featuring the current iteration of Windows Phone. The phone did land in the US, but with its original operating system intact. Barring an unlikely Windows Phone 8 rebranding of the 808, possible PureView candidates include the AC/DC and the Prodigy, both of which were pulled by Nokia earlier this year and have not made an appearance since.
