When billboards went up announcing that ‘something amazing’ was coming on September 7, we thought that the Finnish mobile maker was talking about the launching Windows Phones 8 models. The rumor got more tailwinds because Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system is scheduled to come after the Nokia conference.
However, September 7 will not have anything to do with new announcements regarding Nokia’s platforms, phones, or hardware. That’s the day when Nokia plans to reopen its Finnish store. Confirming this, Nokia’s U.S. Director of Communications Keith Nowak said that the store is undergoing some scheduled summer maintenance/renovation and will reopen on September 7.
There have been some speculations about Nokia’s next-generation Windows Phone 8 devices. There have been rumors that the experience will be far better than anything that we’ve seen before.
In addition to utilizing Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 Operating System, Nokia is also said to be working on porting its PureView camera and imaging technologies to the platform to create a better camera phone experience.
The current Nokia 808 PureView is a Symbian smartphone with Carl Zeiss lens, Xenon flash, and a 41-megapixel camera sensor. Nokia has informed that we may not see a full 41-megapixel Lumia PureView, but much of the experience and technologies will be imported over.
