Nokia releases 41MP 808 PureView for US and UK markets

Nokia recently released its revolutionary 808 PureView, Nokia’s first smartphone to include its award winning PureView technology. The 808 PureView comes with a 41 MP sensor with Carl Zeiss optics, which makes it the best device the smartphone imaging industry can offer right now. This phone is one big step towards the smartphone imaging revolution, with more and more companies now trying to provide the customers with a better imaging experience in a smartphone than most high-end cameras.

After its launch, the 808 PureView has won the Best Mobile award at the prestigious Mobile World Congress, 2012, as well as the Best Imaging Innovation award from TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) The 808n PureView comes with a single core, 1.3 Ghz processor, with 512 MB of RAM, running on the Symbian Belle platform. The screen is a 16:9 4” inch AMOLED unit of nHD (640 x 360) resolution, covered by the sturdy Corning Gorilla Glass. The phone is only available on Amazon UK and Amazon US right now, but a worldwide release is expected.

As Samsung recently overtook Nokia in terms of worldwide smartphones’ sales, it can be safe to say that Nokia is planning to take the market by storm. The PureView technology looks promising, and Nokia plans to release more smartphones based on it .For the photographers too, it’s not really a bad deal either. Even though it is launched at a steep price of 500$, the 41 MP sensor makes sure that resolution will not be a problem, and add the latest imaging processing apps from the OVI store, and we might be looking at the best imaging oriented phone till date. Its performance can only be fully judged after its worldwide release, but it sure looks very promising on paper.
