Nokia today gave us a glimpse of what future camera phones look like by showing its high-end imaging smartphone, the Nokia 808 PureView with 41 megapixel sensor. This is the first smartphone to feature Nokia PureView imaging technologies, bringing together high resolution sensors, exclusive Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia developed algorithms, which will support new high-end imaging experiences for future Nokia products. Here are the details on this Nokia imaging phone:
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 for sharing in email, MMS, and on social networks, the Nokia 808 PureView makes it possible for anyone to capture professional looking images in any conditions. With the Nokia 808 PureView you've got a powerful Xenon flash and LED video light on your side, so you're ready to catch spontaneous moments after dark.
In addition to superior still imaging technology, the 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. Rich Recording enables audio recording at CD-like levels of quality, previously only possible with external microphones. The Nokia 808 PureView also features exclusive Dolby Headphone technology, transforming stereo content into a personal surround sound experience over any headphones and Dolby Digital Plus for 5.1 channel surround sound playback.
Apps, games, and much more The Nokia 808 PureView brings you all the clever features you'd expect from a Nokia smartphone. Find your way with Nokia Maps. Enjoy the latest games and entertainment apps. Or simply set up life your way with business and social networking features from the latest speedy version of Nokia Belle.
