Nokia recently announced their new brain child , the all new Nokia 808 PureView, at the MWC 2012, the first ever smartphone to have a 41 Megapixel Camera.
It comes with Carl Zeiss optics camera sensor, and allows users to take photos in a variety of MEGAPIXELS like 2 5 or 8 and the maximum possible resolution is 38 megapixels in 4:3 aspect ratio and 34 megapixels in 16:9 aspect ratio.

Other features of Nokia 808 Pure view are;

  • Symbian Belle OS
  • GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 and HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100

  • 16 GB internal memory ( on-board memory )
  • 512 MB RAM and 1 GB ROM
  • AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors – 360 x 640 pixels, 4.0 inches (~184 ppi pixel density) – Multi touch with Gorilla Glass
  • Camera

Looking in to more technical aspects of Nokia 808 PureView, the choice of operating system is a bit confusing, though Nokia had already began shipping Windows Mobile with their high end smart phones such as Nokia Lumia 800 etc., may be due to the fact that Windows mobile is in its infant stage, Nokia cleverly avoided Windows Mobile from new Nokia 808 PureView and opted for Symbian Belle. Belle is in fact not a too bad OS for a smartphone but still insufficient according to experts.

Talking about other physical features, the phone has got an extended physical button below the screen, like as in Nokia 5800 expressMusic and its variants; one end gives access to dialer, middle portion to home and the other end for on/off. The phone also has a headphone jack, micro-USB and HDMI ports at the top. And the volume rocker, screen lock slider and dedicated camera button along the right-hand side.

The expected releasing date of Nokia 808 PureView is May 2012 and the rumors tell that price will be around 500 USD.
