MWC 2012: Nokia PureView 808 is a 41MP equipped camera-phone flagship smartphone

After so many leaks, rumours, renders and what not, the new camera flagship by Nokia has been announced. The successor to the N8 and its one big leap by Nokia is finally here, presenting the Nokia PureView 808. The camera-phone will have a 41MP camera sensor that has an f/2.8 lens. Yes, its 41MP and not 14MP.


Now that’s a true camera flagship from Nokia. The camera will be aided by a Xenon flash, and will have 3X zoom.

Getting on to the specs, it will have a 1.3GHz single-core chip, a  4 inch display with 360×640 (nHD) resolution, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory expandable via microSD, HSPA 14.4Mbps and Dolby Digital Plus for 5.1 channel. The PureView will be running on Nokia Belle.

The Carl Zeiss lens equipped camera supports continuous-focus 1080p video, can shoot 41-megapixel images when shooting stills or 34-megapixels for 16:9 images. All this maddening megapixel trickery is achieved by some clever sub-pixel interpolation that basically entails five pixels being merged into one. More to come on this soon.

The smartphone is priced at 450 Euros and is headed to Europe in Q2 2012.
