Nokia PureView 808, a Symbian handset with 41 Megapixel camera sensor, has finally made its way in to the Indian market. Priced at Rs. 29,999, the device is available at Nokia’s online store. However, users can only get their hands on Nokia PureView 808 in Black. Customers interested in other colors might have to wait until first week of June.
Announced at the Mobile World Congress 2012, 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. 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.
Nokia PureView 808 might be the last Symbian handset from Nokia considering its jump to Microsoft’s Windows Phone. This might generate some enthusiasm among hard core Symbian fanatics, however, it needs to be seen whether the device could garner similar enthusiasm from the market. Nokia PureView’s technology is also expected to be heading towards future Windows Phone handsets from Nokia.
