Is Symbian dead? Everyone thought so but actually it’s not, Nokia has launched their new Symbian flagship phone with whooping 41 megapixel camera. The hunchback camera phone is called Pureview 808.
That’s right, it is 41 megapixels camera phone. Nokia made this happen by combining Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia-developed pixel over-sampling technology. High megapixel count does not mean or equal quality photos, of course – we’re looking forward to seeing how PureView tech works in real life.
It’s time to think differently about photography. Say hello to perfect photos ready to share or print. Nokia PureView imaging technology turns the world of photography upside down. It takes every bit of image goodness captured by a 41 MP sensor and Carl Zeiss lens and turns it into beautifully detailed 5 MP photos and Full HD videos. Be ready to shoot in a second, even in low light, and share instantly with friends – all from a rather clever smartphone.
- 41 MP carl Zeiss lens
- 4 inch gorilla glass
- 1.3 GHz CPU
- Symbian Belle OS
- Technically the sensor is able to capture 3 MP, 5 MP, 8 MP, 38 MP at 4:3 aspect ratio and 2 MP, 5 MP [Default], 8 MP, 34 MP at 16:9.Video recording goes as high as FullHD 1080p at 30 fps and there’s also 720p@30fps. Video is encoded in H264 and supports stereo sound recording. The large image sensor allows 4x zoom in 1080p and 6x in 720p.
- 16 GB internal storage with micro SD card slot
But the best news for all, may be Nokia’s assertion that it would be “reasonable to expect” other platforms to get in on the PureView action. Windows Phone would be the most obvious beneficiary should Nokia opt to follow through on these words and use its giant new sensor on another mobile platform.
