Nokia 808 PureView

The Nokia 909 PureView, winner the Global Mobile Awards – the Best New Mobile Handset, Device or Tablet at Mobile World Congress 2012 award. The Nokia 808 PureView, which arguably caused the biggest splash with its 41MP camera sensor, was voted worthy of the award by a panel of journalists and analysts attending the show.


The Nokia 909 PureView defining feature is the 41 MP camera sensor,by default, the Nokia 808 PureView shoots 5MP shots but does something called oversampling – 8 pixels from the sensor are combined into a single pixel in the image. This is meant to improve the image quality, but also let you zoom in up to 3x in the photo while keeping the actual resolution and not losing sharpness. You can zoom up to 4x in the 1080p videos that the PureView can record. Alternatively, you can change resolutions and use up to 38 megapixels at a time for stills photos, and you can them manipulate them yourself, for example on a PC. The camera also comes with a Xenon flash and an LED light for video recording, autofocus and touch-to-focus. In addition, the 808 PureView has features such as face detection, a video editor and scene selection.


Nokia 808 PureView is based on the tried-and-tested Symbian OS,called Nokia Belle. It comes with a 4 inch 360 x 640 pixel curved AMOLED touchscreen 3.5G with HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 MHz and WiFi (802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, UPnP technology) support, GPS support, Stereo FM radio with RDS with FM transmitter, Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP, an HDMI output port and NFC support. There is 16GB of internal flash memory plus a microSD slot, and there are a wide range of built in applications plus many more you can download.


The Nokia 808 PureView is 4mm thicker at the camera end, coming in at a chunky 18mm thick. It is 123.9 mm in lengh and  60.2 mm wide .

Nokia don’t given any indication as to cost or availability for the 808 PureView in MWC 2012, so we can only wait for this.
