Senior Lumia engineer Ari Partinen, who worked on Nokia’s PureView smartphone cameras, has been hired by Apple. Partinen confirmed the move in a tweet.
Today will be my last day working for the amazing #Lumia family. In June I will start a new chapter in Cupertino, California. Much love! — Ari Partinen (@Partinen) May 9, 2014
Nokia has referred to Partinen as the company’s “camera expert.” The PureView cameras are known for their large megapixel sensors, including the 41-megapixel sensor found in the Lumia 1020. [via Engadget]
