MWC 2012: Nokia unveils 808 PureView, a 41-megapixel camera phone!

Nokia PureView 808
Over the years we have come across technologies that revolutionize things or set a trend. The above smartphone can be counted as one such device. The huge bulge your seeing in the image above is due to a 41-megapixel camera at the rear of the phone. That is the one feature that made us first ask ourselves - What?! and then a brief - Wow! 

Yes, meet Nokia PureView 808 that carries a 41-megapixel sensor made up of Carl Zeiss optics along with a Xenon flash and a LED one, acting as a video light. The images taken by this sensor collects data from seven adjacent pixels and condenses it into one. It is also capable of capturing 3 MP, 5 MP, 8 MP, 38 MP snaps at 4:3 aspect ratio and 2 MP, 5 MP, 8 MP, 34 MP at 16:9 aspect ratio. Do you need anything more?

Video recording is obviously FullHD 1080p at 30 fps and there's also 720p@30fps. We wish that if Nokia was able to build such a sensor then why miss out on 1080p at 60fps too? Anyways, it also supports 4x zoom in 1080p and 6x in 720p. Stereo sound recording is present here. 

Phew! Now, let's also talk about other specifications. It has a 16:9 4" AMOLED display of nHD (640 x 360) resolution covered with curved Gorilla Glass. Running on the latest Nokia Belle OS, it has been powered by a single-core 1.3Ghz processor and 512MB RAM.  16GB of on-board storage, Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth 3.0 are loaded in. 

The Nokia PureView 808 is expected to arrive in May at a price of €450. Did this give you jaw-dropping reaction? If yes, Share your thoughts.
