PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Where can I order? "Nokia's new flagship Windows Phone 8 device has been leaked today, revealed as the Lumia 920. Posted to Twitter by Evleaks, the Lumia 920 appears to include a PureView camera that the company has been hinting at in recent weeks. Codenamed the Phi, Nokia's Lumia 920 is said to include a 4.5-inch display and will likely be available in a number of colors judging by the leaked image." Yes miss, the red one please. No, no need to wrap it, don't need bag - I'll have ripped open the box before I go through the door.

The bulk of course got nothing to do with the number of pixels but rather the size of the sensor, optics and cooling.


There is no active cooling on ARM-based mobile devices.

I was rather talking about the sensor.

At least for bigger cameras the sensor run hot for movies and while somewhat smaller in this phone so is the volume around it. I don't know what kind of cooling it needs.

Also all processors will require cooling since they run of electricity and the electricity will make the chips hotter. They may not require active cooling though. Somehow the heat will spread though.

There's also the chance Pureview actually make some other chips run hotter since the sensor actually use those 36+ (or so) mpx even in video mode whereas most digital cameras only use a few of the pixels in video mode. Close to 40 mpx * 30 or 60 fps becomes quite a bit of data.
