Just a few more days until Nokia finally unveils its brand new flagship, but we’ve already started speculating if it’s worth checking out. Today, we decided to pit its camera against two of the better smartphone cameras out in the market already – that of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and of the Apple iPhone 5? Will the Lumia 928’s camera be a charmer?
On paper, based on what we’ve heard so far, the Lumia 928 sure looks quite well equipped in the camera department. There’s a new video out on YouTube called “The Hurricane” which provides a comparison among the 3 phones’ cameras. Shot on a roller coaster track, it shows sharper and more colorful images being clicked by the new Nokia flagship, thanks to Nokia’s amazing optical stabilization and low-light image capture features.
The Lumia 928 is expected to have an 8.7 MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia’s famous PureView technology. Of course, it’s strange that the video picked the Galaxy S3 to compare with the Lumia 928, instead of the newer Galaxy S4 with its 13 MP camera.
But given Nokia’s past history of uploading fake videos to promote its handsets, we doubt the veracity of “The Hurricane” video’s claims. Why don’t we just wait a little while longer to verify the tall claims for ourselves?
