Nokia is said to be working on finally deploying its ground breaking 41 Megapixel camera into its first mainstream smartphone.
When the company first showed off the Pureview sensor last year, the software underpinning it was still based on the Symbian OS, but the capabilities of the camera sensor stunned commentators.
Citing sources close to the company, the Guardian newspaper wrote that Nokia will launch a range of Windows Phone based Lumia handsets incorporating the 41MP camera sensor.
Although the camera is capable of taking massive photos, its primary aim is to enable very high level zooming in without losing resolution - something which has not been possible on a cameraphone to date - and also for the cameraphone to work in very low light levels without needing a flash.
The newspaper said that the new phones could come with an EOS brand, which might be a bit too close to Canon camera brandnames though.
