Nokia has announced that long-serving head of imaging Damian Dining will leave the Finnish phone maker at the end of this month, Reuters reported.

Chief executive Stephen Elop has replaced much of the top tier at the company since taking the role in late 2010 and many others have left. Dinning is the latest.

Nokia launched its Lumia 920 and 820 smartphones in Dubai this month, stressing the models' low-light image capture and shake-resistant lenses as leaps forward in imaging capabilities. The loss-making firm said it saw these features as key enablers in its return to the top of the global mobile phone market.

Dinning said on Nokia's imaging fan site PureViewclub.com that he did not want to move to Finland as part of the company's strategy to concentrate operations. He said he would be moving to Jaguar Land Rover to lead innovations in the field of connected cars.
