Nokia's push to differentiate its Lumia smartphones with PureView camera technology will see "computational imaging" - where shots can be tweaked and modified thanks to clever lens tech - come to the fore, smart devices chief Jo Harlow has teased. "Being able to capture even more data [is an area of exploration]" Harlow told DNA, "data you cannot even see with the human eye that you can only see by actually going back to the picture and being able to do things with them."
