Nokia 808 PureView 41-Megapixel Camera Phone Announced



Nokia has yet again raised the bar when it comes to smartphone imaging with the announcement of the Nokia 808 PureView. This is the first device to include Nokia PureView technology that incorporates Carl Zeiss optics, high resolution sensors and Nokia developed algorithms.


What does that all mean? Well let’s just say when you take a photo with the 808¬†PureView it will become very clear, this phone has a 41-megapixel sensor (yes you read that right). The phone has a new pixel oversampling technology that means at standard resolutions (2, 3, 5 and 8 megapixels) you can zoom right into your subject without losing clarity. The camera does this by condensing 7 pixels into one so you get sharp clear images.



When capturing images at high-resolution (38-megapixel maximum) you will be able to capture a general image and be able to zoom into different sections, re-frame or crop and see more details than ever before.


You may be thinking that all this amazing detail will munch through the memory on the phone but images can be saved in compact file sizes making them easy to share via email or on Facebook. As if that wasn’t enough the camera is also the first to include Rich Recording, which gives CD-like sound quality to your full HD video clips.


Apart from the industry busting optics package the 808 PureView’s other features include a 4-inch Gorilla Glass ClearBlack touchscreen, 16GB internal memory (expandable to 42GB), 3.5G and Wi-Fi connectivity as well as DLNA and GPS.


It was believed that with the announcement from Nokia to focus on windows Phone handsets that we wouldn’t be seeing another Symbian phone from them but the 808 PureView¬†is Symbian none the less. This mid-range handset should be heading our way in summer with prices yet to be announced.
