Ever since Nokia unveiled its Nokia 808 PureView smartphone with its 41MP camera sensor, people have wondered when this technology would make its way over to the Windows Phone Lumia devices. Nokia has hinted at such a move a number of times (back in March and earlier this month) in the past.
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop is the latest to hint at such a move. Asked about such a move, he responded, “When we announced PureView with the Nokia 808 earlier this year, we knew that people were going to be interested in when it would come to Windows Phone.
