Posted on May 9, 2012. Filed under: Technology | Tags: , |

However, pricing details for the 41 MP, 4″, and Symbian Belle based camera phone are still awaited.

Nokia has confirmed through a press release that it will launch its latest smartphone, 808 PureView , in select markets, including India. The new phone has been a subject of wonder around with world because of its extraordinary 41 MP image sensor that claims to capture 1080p videos and play it back with 4x losslesszoom, thanks to the PureView Pro image processor. The highly anticipated device has already won several awards, including Best Mobile Device at the Mobile World Congress 2012 and Best Imaging Innovation for 2012 from the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA).

Company Head of Smart Devices, Jo Harlow said, “PureView has completely raised the bar on imaging performance for the whole smartphone industry – and Nokia is not stopping here. We’re going to carry on developing PureView for our future smartphones in ways that will again revolutionize the imaging experience” . Imaging and multimedia is stated to be the forte of this mobile. In addition to the large image sensor, the 808PureView features Carl Zeiss optics and new pixel oversampling technology that allows lossless zoomingat standard resolutions and the ability to zoom, reframe,crop, and resize 38 MP high-res images. It also has Rich Recording that claims tobe capable of recording audio with CD-like quality.
This Symbian Belle phone sports a 4″ AMOLED ClearBlack screen with pixel dimensions 640×360. Some of the other features include, GPS, 3D accelerometer, HDMI, DLNA, Wi-Fi, and NFC. Users can also download a free Channel ME app that lets them create their own channel using videos shoot with the gadget, and start sharing with the world. You can even broadcast live videos directly using the app. To know a bit more about the device, you can take a look at the hands-on preview we did a few weeks ago. Nokia has not yet announced the pricing of this new smartphone, although the product page for India is live. We estimatethat the cost would be somewhere around Rs 35,000, although we think that a price tag of just under 30k would help it sell a lot better.
Would you buy the Nokia 808 PureView at this estimated price? What price do you think would be suitable for this smartphone?
