When we first saw Nokia’s 808 PureView — a Symbian-powered phone that can putput SLR caliber photographs thanks to some sophisticated, satellite-grade oversampling technology and an absurd 41MP camera sensor — we were totally blown away by the quality of the images it took, but knew it would never come to the iPhone, because the frickin’ camera module took up half the back of the camera body.
But what if it did? What if Nokia’s PureView technology came to the iPhone. Well, you’d get something that looked like this monstrosity… except it would take way better pictures, because this iPhone only has a 1.2MP cam. What?
This design concept by Jinyoung Choiis called the iPhone Pro, and features a 1.2 MP 3D camera (novelty), interchangeable lenses (hopelessly niche), a 4.5-inch display (never going to happen) and a removable hard disk (lolwut).
In other words, never going to happen, but dare to dream, Jinyoung! We’ll dare to snigger. Two 3D cameras peering down one lens? Heh. Quite the imagination you’ve got there.
