Nokia has obviously planned to revolutionize the world of camera smartphones . And they achieved it with the launch of new Nokia 808 PureView at MWC in Barcelona. The most revolutionary feature of this device is its 41 MegaPixel Camera with Carl Zeiss lens. Not even digital SLR cameras in the upper class can come up with such values. Current smart phones with cameras make very good present for up to 8 megapixels with it, enough is known completely.
Nokia PureView 808 runs on New Symbian Belle OS and packed with 1.3 gigahertz single-core processor, four-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 360x640 pixels. In addition there is 512 MB RAM with inbuilt 16GB storage capacity and expandable. It also features micro-USB and micro HDMI sockets. Furthermore, USB On-The-Go, DLNA, Bluetooth 3.0 and an FM transmitter on board.
The smartphone is able to save the photos as compact files, making it easier for sending e-mail and more. Video recording is available in full HD resolution. There is onboard sound recorder that records in Dolby CD-quality and a special technique, the surround sound is to perform tricks up all over headphones.
The use of a 41-megapixel sensor is not so crazy as it sounds at first. The sensor is considerably larger than other mobile phones, surpassing even the most compact cameras. The phone uses the high resolution in order to create a high quality 8-megapixel image, or provide a zoom, which effectively makes the photo just different from others. While other mobile phones access to a digital zoom, which is always associated with loss of quality.
Apart from the camera and lenses, processing and haptics worked well, the speed of the user interface could in most cases are equally impressive. Only the detection of finger entries appeared at one point or another not to work reliably, perhaps because of a not yet fully completed customization of the software.
