Nokia advertising for a Imaging Specialist for Lumia PureView handsets

Nokia has been slightly coy about their PureView technology coming to their Windows Phone range, only saying it will appear on other handsets.

Now a job post for a senior specialist, Imaging Algorithms from the 19th March makes it pretty explicit that we will see the technology on Windows Phone.

The job description tellingly says:

Have you heard of Nokia 808 PureView? Do you want to take part in creating the next chapter in Nokia’s Windows Phone devices? Do you want to be a part of a team in charge of developing the next big thing related to imaging and camera? If yes, this is your opportunity to join our world-class team!

We are looking for a Senior Specialist of imaging algorithms to work in Nokia with Windows Phone Imaging team in Tampere, Finland.

What is somewhat odd to me however is that they seem to be starting the work from scratch again, whereas I would have thought bringing the technology to Windows phone would be a simple port.

Be that as it may, it seems we now know what the “next big thing” in Nokia’s Windows Phones will be.

See the job description after the break.
