Nokia has just announced the successor to the highly popular N8, the Nokia Pure View 808. Like the N8, the Nokia Pure View 808 is first a camera, and then a phone. The 808 comes with a whopping…wait for it…41MP camera sensor! Yes, 41MP camera sensor! Readers can find more information about the 41MP sensor on the Pure View and the technology behind it here.
Not only is the camera good enough for clicking pictures, it is also capable of recording stunning videos. The phone can record high-quality 1080p HD resolution videos and comes with 5.1 Dolby Digital Sound technology and can also records sounds without distortion at audio levels as high as 140dB. The phone also allows up to 3x zoom without any loss in picture quality.
Now for the disappointing part, the Pure View 808 has a 4-inch CBD display with a disappointingly low nHD (360×640) resolution. There is also a 1.3GHz single-core processor, 16GB of on-board memory, and a microSD card slot.
The handset is expected to cost around 450 Euros before taxes and subsidies, and is expected to start shipping sometime in May this year. The handset will be running on Nokia Belle Feature Pack 1 out of the box.
