All about the Nokia PureView 808’s 41MP camera
So we are back to the same thing. 41 megapixels? Actually it produces an effective 38MP. The Nokia 808 can capture 4:3 images at up to 38MP and 16:9 images at up to 34MP. You cannot take 41MP photos as the sensor has a total active surface of 7728 x 5368 pixels which is not exactly 41MP. Depending on the aspect ratio, you get about 7728 x 4354 pixels for 16:9 images or 7152 x 5368 pixels for 4:3 images/videos.
