Could ditch big camera.

Nokia's 808 PureView features a whopping 41MP camera, and cramming those optics into a smartphone means it isn't exactly svelte.

But Nokia is going to put PureView on a diet, revealing to Engadget it's considering plans to create slimmer phones using the PureView brand.

This may mean ditching the 41MP camera that's the hallmark of the 808 PureView – but Nokia would still use the same optics and oversampling techniques to make other PureView phones worthy of the name.

Nokia's keeping quiet on the possibility of a Windows Phone Lumia PureView, but new phones are unlikely to run on the outdated Symbian OS.
