What is the best Camera phone you’ve ever seen? 12Megapixels? 16megapixels? Oh wait, Nokia is blowing your mind with all new 41MP camera in smartphone.
Yes, that’s not a typo, its actually is 41MegaPixels. This is made possible with Nokia’s own Algorithms that take advantage of large sensor, which capture image in super high 41Megapixel image.
Nokia 808 is imaging flagship phone and a true successor to the N8. It’s called the 808 PureView and it’s expected to reach Europe in the next quarter for a price of 450 Euros.
The OS is Symbian Belle. Why not Windows Phone 7? Well, Microsoft doesn’t allow device manuufacturers to put their custom software on WP7 phones. Nokia is seriously out of luck with windows if they want to continue innovating.

How Nokia 808 PureView Camera works
It uses some clever interpolation jiggery-pokery that condenses four or five pixels into one pixel, to produce a smaller file size for the output image. It’s expected to arrive in May at a price of €450.
Nokia’s phone more closely rivals a point-and-shoot camera in size than a smartphone.
The physical buttons are combined with additional navigation options that are situated directly above on the touchscreen. The phone also features a headphone jack, and the volume rocker, screen lock slider and dedicated camera button along the right-hand side.

The Nokia 808 PureView features a large, high-resolution 41 megapixel sensor with high-performance Carl Zeiss optics and new pixel oversampling technology. At standard resolutions (2/3, 5 and 8 megapixels) this means the ability to zoom without loss of clarity and capture seven pixels of information, condensing into one pixel for the sharpest images imaginable. At high-resolution (38 megapixel maximum) it means the ability to capture an image, then zoom, reframe, crop and resize afterwards to expose previously unseen levels of details. With superior low-light performance and the ability to save in compact file sizes.
Nokia 808 PureView, also includes full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X lossless zoom and the world’s first use of Nokia Rich Recording, cd quality audio recording.
