Nokia Lumia 920 – Details on the Camera and Floating Lens

We’ve got a few more details on the Nokia Lumia 920 for you including more specs on the camera which is an F2.0 device that can take in “five times more light” than competing smartphones. Impressive!

The floating lens is effectively a camera unit (not lens) mounted on springs which we assume dampened in some way. Update: This is an active system driven from data obtained by a gyroscope.

Here’s a demo that Nokia was showing at the press event. The images are designed to show the difference between the image you’ll get from a standard smartphone and the image you’ll get from a Nokia Lumia 920 with PureView and the floating lens.
