Interesting bit of news coming in from BGR. They talked to Jo Harlow, Executive vice president for Nokia’s smart devices who gave them some hints of what can come in future Lumia devices. Read on for more.
Jo harlow, in the interview, hinted that Nokia engineers are working on Pelican Imaging’s 16-lens array camera tech which Nokia recently invested in, which might come in a handset in 2014. She said that the upcoming Lumia device will use more ‘computational photography’ clearly hinting at Pelican Imaging’s Array camera tech. This means that future Lumias will have better processors to process this type of ‘computational photography’.
On being asked about their strategy with Lumia devices in India, Jo replied:
One of the things that we have done with an eye on India is to build out the portfolio and to have flagship devices that create aspiration but to really pay off that aspiration is to have lower end devices. The Lumia 520 is a great example of that. We will continue to push the boundaries of how low we can take Lumia. That’s one thing. Then, of course, there are things that are currently missing. Dual SIM is an important one and to be really successful in the Indian market. And that’s something on our radar to bring to the portfolio.
Dual SIM would be a very good addition to the Lumia series, especially in the mid-end considering that the competition (Samsung) also offers dual sim variant of flagship devices in India. And also, we can expect a lumia cheaper than Lumia 520 in future.
