Nokia Expected to Show off 41-Megapixel Camera Next Month

Nokia has sent out the invites to a press conference in which it is expected to show off the long-rumored radical camera.

Nokia has been widely rumored in recent weeks to be planning a Windows Phone based Lumia handset incorporating the 41MP camera sensor this summer.

The camera cannot only take massive photos but it can also do very high level zooming without losing resolution. It can also take photos in very low light levels without needing the flash. That functionality would fit in very neatly with the press invite, which is to a “zoom” event.

Nokia has also recently invested in a company that has developed a groundbreaking camera design — based around a 16 lens array. Pelican Imaging’s computational camera technology provides depth mapping at every pixel, enabling “the perfect picture” every time and allowing users to perform an unprecedented range of selective focus and edits, both pre- and post-capture. The camera itself is also about 50% thinner than existing mobile cameras.

The Nokia press event will take place on 11th July.
