Nokia 808 PureView Features 41-Megapixel Camera

You might have thought that Symbian was dead. If you are thinking the same, you need to rethink. Nokia has brought something really remarkable at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the 808 PureView – a flagship Symbian device featuring a 41-megapixel camera.

Don’t be surprised, you got it right, 41-megapixels. This has been achieved by combining Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia-developed pixel over-sampling technology. However, high pixel doesn’t mean at all quality pictures. We need to see PureView tech works in real life as well to be able to make an impression in true sense.

Certainly, Nokia is looking to bring PureView technology into its other smartphones as well. So, one can expect to have phones with massive megapixels in future.

Besides having massive megapixel numbers, the 808 PureView also comes with Rich Recording, a feature that enables you record “crisp, clear audio (…) up to a thumping 140 decibels,” according to Nokia.

The other specifications include a single core 1.3 GHz processor, a 4-inch 360 × 640 pixel screen, 512 MB of RAM and 16 GB of storage.

The device is expected to hit market in May with a price tag of 450 euros.

Now the time is to get back to the question whether the Symbian is dead, many of us predicted. Nokia, however, declined to comment on it. If Nokia PureView is considered as the last Symbian from the Finnish mobile maker, we can see PureView technology living on at least other handsets.
