Nokia teasingly waved something called PureView in our faces last week. Now, we’re happy to announce that it’s a mobile phone, dubbed the 808 PureView. Its standout and frankly revolutionary feature is its 41MP camera. The time of prophecies is here.
Carl Zeiss unleashes the beast
Available first in Europe next quarter at the cost of EUR€450, the 808 PureView runs Symbian Belle, (why?) has a 1.3Ghz single-core CPU, a 4-inch 360×640 screen, 512MB RAM, 16GB of internal storage and looks like Eve from Wall-E.
Expect really beautiful shots from a plain-looking phone. The 808 PureView shoots 41MP stills and 34MP 16:9 video. How does it manage to create these ludicrous images sizes? Technical wizardry strings seven pixels into one for a roughly 5MP image, but more on this as further details emerge. The Mobile World Conference is truly setting a precedent for innovative devices.
