Nokia Russia Posts, Retracts MWC Preview Video Talking Lumia, PureView
Over the past several weeks, we’ve heard a number of rumors concerning the possibility of Nokia finally bring an 808-style 41-megapixel PureView camera to its Lumia line of Windows Phone models, referred to thus far as the Nokia EOS. As we wait for the company’s February 25 MWC event to see what Nokia has to share with us, the company’s Russian branch may have just let the cat out of the bag, posting a teaser video to YouTube which seemed to hint at just such a PureView Lumia being in its MWC plans.
Unfortunately, the video has subsequently been removed from YouTube, which we can’t help but think might be a sign that Nokia Russia got in a little trouble for posting it and was forced to take it down. Now, whether that’s because the info it contained was misleading or because it was actually accurate is an open question, so don’t treat this as rock-solid confirmation.
Based on reports from when the video was active, it referenced the upcoming Mobile World Congress event, the company’s Lumia line, development of the 808, and the 41-megapixel sensor itself. All considered together, it’s easy to see how that could be seen as related to the EOS rumors we’ve already heard. With less than two weeks to go until Nokia’s MWC event, we’ll be getting our answers quite soon.
