Finally, after 2 years reigning the mobile world, the N8 can finally retire. For the time has now come for the Nokia 808 to rule!
Last week at MWC 2012, Nokia brought the PureView teaser to fever pitch with the 41 megapixel camera of the Symbian Belle-running Nokia PureView 808.
The Nokia 808 PureView uses a 41 MP sensor, which captures image data from seven adjacent pixels and condenses it into one, resulting in stills at around 5 MP resolution with amazing detail and low noise levels. The optics are Carl Zeiss and there’s Xenon flash and a LED one acting as a video light.
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 H264 encoded and supports stereo sound. The large image sensor allows 4x zoom in 1080p and 6x in 720p.
The Nokia 808 PureView has a single-core 1.3 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM and runs Symbian Belle. The display is a 16:9 4″ AMOLED unit of nHD (640 x 360) resolution covered with curved Gorilla Glass.
There’s NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB on the go and 16 GB of onboard storage.
The Nokia 808 PureView should be on the shelves around May 2012.
The specs, in brief:
- 1.3 Ghz ARM11 CPU (with unspecified Broadcom GPU)
- 512 RAM
