Rumour: Camera buttons to be reserved only for Pureview handsets


Gadgethelpline visited the Microsoft and Nokia booth at the Gadget Show Live in UK and managed to have a hands-on with the Nokia Lumia 630.

They did not have much new to report, except to say that the Nokia Lumia 630 looked like the love child of the Nokia Lumia 920 and the iPhone 5c.

They did however have one interesting titbit which they dropped rather casually.

They wrote:

The Power and Volume controls on the right side of the device are the only controls situated on the case, with Nokia telling us that the lack of a dedicated camera button is now a feature of low end handsets, with only the higher ranged Nokia Pureview cameras coming with a dedicated button.

While this differentiation makes sense, especially as a way of adding value to Nokia’s more expensive handsets, it does take an element which used to be a standard Windows Phone feature and now makes it a Pureview feature, which I think is a pity.
