Nokia 808 PureView Has a Monster 41-Megapixel Camera

BARCELONA — Thought that Symbian was dead? Think again: at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Nokia has just announced the 808 Pureview, a flagship Symbian device with a 41-megapixel camera. You read that right, 41 megapixels – Nokia has made this happen by combining Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia-developed pixel over-sampling technology. High megapixel count does not equal quality photos, of course – we’re looking forward to seeing how PureView tech works in real life. Of course, the PureView technology will be coming to upcoming Nokia phones as well, so get used to phones having crazy megapixel numbers in the near future.
The 808 PureView also features something called Rich Recording, which lets you record “crisp, clear audio (…) up to a thumping 140 decibels,” says Nokia.
The rest of the specs mostly spell mid-range: a single core 1.3 GHz CPU, a 4-inch, 360 x 640 pixel screen, 512 MB of RAM and 16 GB of storage.
The device will retail for 450 euros, hitting the market in May.
And, going back to the question we asked at the beginning – whether Symbian is dead, as many have predicted – Nokia declined to say. In any way, even if 808 PureView is the last Symbian we see, at least the PureView technology will live on in other handsets.

  1. Good device!! However, you cannot enjoy the clarity unless you have a screen to view the images of such a resolution. To me anything more than 12 MP is not going to be good unless, you are a professional(I mean real professional photographer, not some monkeys with DSLRs!!!). 12 MP is more than enough for a mobile - I would not recommend to go for a mobile with anything greater than 8 MP.
