Alleged Leak of #Lumia #PureView ?

| April 6, 2012 | 182 Replies

Androsym have posted “leaked slides” showing off an upcoming WP handset from Nokia, boasting the impressive 41mp PureView technology. To me, it’s quite an ugly design, but some people have said they like the 808’s design so I guess, it is all in the eye of the beholder.

Based on the leaked slides, the specs of this device are;

  • 4.3″ Curved Glass touchscreen with HD display
  • 41mp sensor, Carl Zeiss lens and PureView imaging technology
  • 1080p full HD video recording and Rich Recording Technology
  • Dual Core processor with Adreno 320 GPU
  • Windows Phone Operating System


Since WP7, as far as I know, can’t support a sensor that big, I assume the device will be powered by Windows Phone Apollo. Also, note the Windows capacitive button has the new Win8 design style. Compared to the 808, the face of the device is different, sporting a curved front, whilst the back shows us that the flash is separated from the camera module.

    nice and this is why i will always love nokia,very different to other.

  • alone

    I’m really fine with that design, remind me of the Nokia 7610-era, where Nokia was well known as weirdo manufacturer that produce weird phones 😛

    But then again, the placement of xenon flash is on curvy spot?
    How on earth the xenon flash could complement the camera then? Since the flash will either being blocked and it will shoot at totally opposite direction : s

    But anyway, this design is really cool IMHO

  • weirdfisher

    i see the thumbnail and immediately think wtf is this shit

  • Keith

    It seems to good to be fake. It goes to show they will easily be able to incorporate a full size PureView into WP8 handsets.

    The design looks good but I doubt if its real because the front look little too curvy and also the Nokia squiricle instead of WP icons.

    If it is real, I don’t think it has the 41MP PureView camera from the 808 because the bulge isn’t as big as the 808.

    • Mads Skipper

      Remember that its a 4.3″ the 808 is “only” 4″ that helps on it not looking as big, but not sure if thats enough but it helps

      • Ebon & Unicorn N9s

        You should remember that WP uses a 5:3 resolution screen instead of the 16:9 on the N9/Symbian. So WP devices will be wider. N9 and L800 has the same width but N9 has a slightly bigger screen.

        If this is indeed a 4.3in screen with 5:3 ratio, it is very long given the length\width ratio from the pics.. The bezels at the top & bottom will be too big.

    what ever it is, it is not coming till 2013.

    If you imagine Wp tiles on that screen, it just does not look right. Maybe some one can photoshop them in. The design looks good on squircle icons though.

  • flyingbathtub

    on 2nd look this actually reminds me a bit of the all the legend…the 8110…

  • Jay

    I love the pureview technology but this phone as well as the 808 is UGGLYYY. I really wish Nokia went with designs like the N9’s a truly great looking piece of technology.

    • Pdexter

      No. We have 3 phones with the exact design.
      Ot’s time to move on.

      • I agree with you. The design of the N9-00, Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 is gorgeous. But it’s time to move on, create something new. Let people miss it, instead of milking the same design for years, losing its appeal.

        • migo

          I think there’s still room for perfecting it. Lumia 900 proportions with Lumia 800 curved screen, and RGB AMOLED if Samsung makes the screens at 4″ or smaller.

        • RJC

          Apple has milked nicely with the same design without losing any appeal. Quite the contrary.

          The N9 design is not a problem, it’s the WP OS inside it that doesn’t belong to that gorgeous design. Metro UI is just too ugly.

          So more MeeGo phones with N9 design and move WP to some other totally different design.

  • M

    kinda of reminds me of a fish

  • Filip

  • karam

    A great and unique design. Nokia would have balls like melons if they release it. Maybe my taste is odd, but I really like it.

  • Jesse

    It is a crazy design, but as long as it takes awesome pictures and runs Windows Phone I will be happy.

    As I first saw it, I was really embarassed of the Design, but a few hours later I got used to it 🙂

    Only thing I’m afraid of is the feeling of the curved screen in my pocket.

  • Prashant

    It’s really ugly only one thing can save this design i.e edge to edge touchscreen with swipe.

  • mattleech

    The concave screen would make single handed use on a large screen slightly easier.

    I also see how the styling makes the phone very easy to pick up from a flat surface and comfortable to hold.

    Looks good to me 🙂

    Where’s the glossy white one?!

  • Ali Abdulla

    i dont care much about phone designs, specs comes first, bigger screen and cool camera :), and thin phones are gay.

    the design on my n8 was like a welcomed bonus.

    the looks of this phone aint bad,too sporty for my taste, but i still like, plz improve windows phone features, and i might as well get this one

    the design looks professional enough to NOT be fake..

  • twig

    I LIKE IT!! Kind of star trek.

  • meh

    Oh, man. Those designs are SEXY. DAMN!

  • Meh, I guess it’s either you like the design or you don’t.. It just looks weird with that front curve like that! O.o

    • It’s very different none-the-less!
