The Nokia 808 PureView was one of the major surprises of the MWC 2012 in Barcelona due to the integration of innovative technology. The Nokia 808 PureView isn’t in its range of Windows smartphones that the manufacturer loves to produce, but it lands in the range of smartphones running Symbian, that recently have had a phase of rapid decline undermining the group’s financials.
the PureView technology in the Nokia 808 allows it to carry a 41 megapixel camera but not really for taking pictures at full resolution (even if it were possible to take pictures of 38 megapixels) but rather to take and enhance details of images without loss of quality, usually for pictures of 2 to 8 megapixels. See the 808 and full range of Nokia smartphones on offer over at Amazon here.
The camera can also shoot in 1080p and has a display 4″ AMOLED 640 x 360 pixels, with WiFi connectivity (DLNA support), Bluetooth, GPS, FM radio, NFC (Near Field Communications), Dolby 5.1 and microphone output HDMI.
The smartphone uses the Symbian OS, Belle version, and will therefore benefit from the latest version with improvements in terms of ergonomics, reactivity and an increased number of home screens allowed.
Much like the Nokia N9 Maemo, the manufacturer has chosen to market this product because of the developments already in progress and brutal strategic changes. This innovation, in addition to the optical quality provided by long-time partner Carl Zeiss, led to an atypical camera smartphone. PureView technology will also be offered later on Nokia Windows smartphones. The Nokia 808 PureView also won the award for the Best Mobile at MWC 2012.
Nokia announced that the marketing of this atypical model begins in May, starting with the Indian and Russian markets, before expanding gradually to Europe and beyond.
