It’s looking like Nokia will have at least two Windows Phone handsets and one new Symbian model to show-off at next week’s Mobile World Congress. There’s the possibility that even more phones may be waiting for us, at least according to recent discoveries of additional model numbers, but at the very least we should see models like the successor to the N8, rumored to be the Nokia 808 PureView. As such, all eyes are going to be on that handset’s camera performance and, if the teaser video Nokia just released is any indication, we should have cause to be impressed.
Pure detail, pure depth, pure definition: whatever Nokia plans to show us on February 27, it’s chosen these imagery-related terms to pique our attention. It invites us to “get ready to capture a pure view”, mirroring the name we’ve heard associated with the 808. To be fair, there’s nothing in Nokia’s teaser video that is OS-specific, and it very well might be referring to the imagery capabilities of a Windows Phone handset. While possible, the evidence here seems much more in favor of the Symbian-based 808.
The latest rumors about the 808 suggest the phone may bring dual-core performance to Symbian, along with the ability to record 1080p video.
