920 pureview sensor details

Nokia uploaded on their site a second white paper about pureview camera systems 2.0.

Pureview 920 specs

  • True 16:9 / 4:3 aspect ratio
  • Super Wide angle lens: 26mm -16:9
  • f.2.0 apeture
  • Custom BSI 8.7MP sensor - 10% larger than comparable 8MP sensors, pixel size at 1.4 microns
  • True Optical Image Stabilization - a gyroscope detects subtle phone movement which is compensated for by shifting the entire optical assembly(not just the lens) to combat camera shake.
  • Next gen LED flash - can fire a pulse flash burst which they say provides very similar capabilities as xenon flashes
  • Nokia's proprietary image processing software

Overall, I am very pleased with what Nokia has developed. I can't wait to get my hands on the camera and try out the new optics. Links below for the more detailed whitepaper and samples of the low light photos.
