Sheesh – handset manufacturers really can’t get away with anything these days. The image above was originally posted on Nokia’s Nseries site as an example of a “pretty picture [taken] with a Nokia device.” The actual quality of the image is open to debate thanks to some pretty clear blurring around edges when viewed at fill size, but that’s hardly the story here. An inquisitive Nokia fan examined the EXIF data attached to the picture and has made some pretty interesting discoveries. First and foremost, the dimensions come in at 3264 Ă— 2448 pixels — 8 megapixels. What’s more, the model field reads Undisclosed (Carl Zeiss). With MWC just around the corner, this could be a pretty good indication Nokia finally plans to debut its first 8 megapixel camera phone in an effort to catch up with the like of Samsung and others. Nokia has been the long-standing king when it comes to high end camera phone image quality, so to say our expectations are high is an understatement. Wow us, Nokia! Hit the jump for a screen shot of the EXIF data attached to the skater image and stay glued to your computer next week as MWC kicks off with what should be some pretty exciting announcements.
