Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NOK): A Lumia With How Big of a Camera?

Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) has been hinting at some new device launches later this year, and there has been much speculation and rumor that Nokia will take smartphone cameras to an entirely new level this year. Nokia has been busy this year already with launches of a brand new Lumia line of smartphones that run on the Windows Phone 8 platform by Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). However, the company has already launched three high-end smartphones with the Lumia 920, 925 and 928 that covers all of the major U.S. carriers. What else could Nokia do?

Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NOK)Well there have been those Nokia followers who think that there is still something missing among its top-tier phones. With companies like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., continuing to evolve their smartphone cameras, Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) has owned a significant number of patents in the area of mobile device cameras, and it made waves a couple years ago with its PureView camera that was on the Nokia 808 handset. The question has circulated as to whether Nokia would bring back that technology and put it on the back of a Windows-based smartphone?

The question has been rumored for months, and now we apparently have a couple of leaked photos that, if legit, seem to be pointing toward a redux of the PureView on a Lumia handset. The Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) Lumia handset has been rumored for a while, as this was expected to be the handset with Windows Phone 8 and the mammoth 41-megapixel PureView camera attached to it. Now there are questions about the legitimacy of the photos, but they come from a Chinese site that has been somewhat reliable in the past. To be clear, the PureView camera itself is not seen in the photos of this device, but a huge circular hole where a camera would be, exists, and when the device is shown on its side, a very noticeable bump is noted where the hole is located. It certainly appears to be a much larger camera hole than any other smartphone on the market, which would lead one to believe that this is the 41MP version for which Nokia has been noted.

Word on the street is that a rumored Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) Lumia EOS would  come out in the U.S. on AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) perhaps by the fall and a launch event may be slated for July. What are your thoughts about this new smartphone? Do you think there is a market for a 41-megapixel camera, and will this revolutionize smartphones going forward?
