Nokia is set to release the 808 PureView that will revolutionize cameras on smartphones for years to come.
The device will feature a whopping 41 megapixel camera along with Nokia PureView imaging technology, Carl Zeiss optics, and high resolution sensors. The smartphone will also feature a new pixel oversampling technology. At standard resolution, it means the ability to zoom without loss of clarity. At high resolution, it means the ability to capture, then zoom, re-frame, crop and resize to expose previously unseen levels of details.
In addition to its imaging capability, the device will include full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X lossless zoom. The 808 PureView will also be the first phone to use Nokia Rich Recording which enables audio recording at CD-like levels of quality. In addition, it is going to have Dolby Headphone technology, transforming stereo content into a personal surround sound experience over any headphones.
Unlike Nokia’s other recent smartphones, this will launch running Symbian Belle, not Windows Phone. It will do so on a 1.3GHz single-core processor, and will have 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.
The 808 PureView is going to have a 4-inch AMOLED ClearBlack touchscreen. Other features include a microSD card slot, HDMI-out, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, and USB On-The-Go.
While pricing has yet to be released, reports have the device hitting store shelves some time in May.
