Could Nokia's next phone feature 5MP front camera?

Nokia's new phone may feature a 5MP front camera, thought to be great for selfies.

According to The Verge, Nokia's next Windows Phone 8.1 device, dubbed ‘Superman' is currently being developed and is rumoured to focus on front-facing camera capabilities.

Previous Nokia phones have featured 5MP cameras on the back, so having this on the front instead of the standard 1MP, will be a first for Nokia and according to The Verge will be the ‘ultimate selfie-taking phone' and may compete with HTC's M8 which also has a 5MP front-facing camera.

The ‘Superman' is one of Nokia's first devices due for release after Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia's phone business and is a 4.7-inch mid-range handset that's expected to debut towards the end of the year.

Microsoft is currently thought to be working towards two Windows Phone 8.1 updates, which will be rolled out some time this year. The first update is tentatively scheduled for July, and Superman is expected to debut alongside the second later this year.

It is not clear whether any of the devices will include Nokia branding on them as the company has not yet detailed its plans for future branding.
