The Future of Nokia: Virtual Reality Camera  


We learned to send texts and receive or make calls through the very first and largest phone maker in the world at that time – Nokia. Some Singaporeans may not know this but Nokia went through restructuring. Their restricting made them sell its mobile phone business to none other than Microsoft.


With the influx of different phone makers, Nokia encountered tough times but it does not mean that they have lost all hope. The company based in Helsinki, Finland moved on and instead of fretting, they try to make something that can be the first of its kind.

This time, they are developing a virtual reality camera. This could clear the hazy future of the company. The company unveiled its very first virtual reality camera at an event in Los Angeles. The camera is round-shape which is important for creating 3D games and movies. The games and movies can be played and watched with the use of virtual reality headsets.


The camera takes audio and video 360 degrees because of its eight microphones and sensors. We might notice some similarities with GoPro. GoPro uses sixteen cameras together with Google’s software to work. Other companies like Samsung and Facebook also expressed their plans to go into the virtual reality industry soon. We’ll have to see.

This new virtual camera is under Nokia’s digital media solutions business. This business is the new focus of the company as a potential for future growth. It is good news that Nokia is finally picking the pieces and starting to reinvent things. With this new innovation, it is not impossible that Nokia will once again be hailed as the largest maker in the world.
