Being the biggest phone company in the world, there are a lot of expectations for the Finnish company, Nokia. Thus when it announced the result of its 5 years project, which involved a camera having a sensor capable of taking 41 megapixels worth of photo, it took the world by surprise.
The Nokia 808 PureView may not be too impressive when its specs are concerned. It is powered by a 1.3GHz single-core processor and a 4-inch display. In fact, it doesn’t use Android nor Windows Phone but rather the Symbian Belle OS which is the newest Symbian OS as of date. It only has a 512MB RAM and a 16GB internal memory (extendable) but what is impressive is its camera sensor. It boasts of having a sensor bigger than the ones found in most point-and shoot camera. In fact, its 41MP sensor definitely makes it a replacement for a point-and-shoot camera as well. It can also handle a continuous-focus 1080p recording which is definitely an impressive feat as well.
At a price of €450, it isn’t for people that take price into consideration but in places where there are phone contracts, expect the prices to go down. The Nokia 808 PureView will be in the markets sometime in May 2012.
