Nokia Lumia PureView with Windows Phone 8 Exclusively Launching at Verizon – Report

Last week we reported on a render of a mysterious Nokia device that is said to carry PureView technology and Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 (Apollo) operating system.

Some specs details emerged as well, but nothing is confirmed for the moment. The device that appears in the render has a touch-sensitive button that features the new Windows Phone 8 logo, which suggests that Nokia is planning to announce some Apollo-based devices this year.

Completely unrelated to the render that leaked online last week, new rumors on the upcoming Nokia Lumia PureView device have just surfaced.

It appears that MS Nerd heard some interesting rumors about Nokia’s plans for United States' smartphone market. According to him, the Finnish company plans to release a flagship Windows Phone 8 device for Verizon Wireless.

The smartphone will be released sometime this fall and will include Nokia’s PureView technology along with a ClearBlack HD capacitive touchscreen display.

However, the smartphone’s camera won’t be based on Nokia 808 PureView sensor. Instead, it will integrate N8’s sensor, which has yet to be beaten by other camera phone available on the market.

Another interesting piece of information is the fact that the upcoming smartphone will be equipped with Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon S4 chipset. 

It appears that at least some of the details leaked last week along with the render of the Lumia PureView device were accurate. 

The unannounced smartphone will be powered by a dual core Qualcomm MSM8960 Pro processor, which will be complemented by an Adreno 320 graphic processing unit. No word on the CPU’s speed, but it’s likely to come in at 1.5 GHz.

MS Nerd further claims that Nokia plans to release more powerful smartphones in the United States, but these will be carrier exclusives with unique designs and hardware configuration. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
