The Nokia 808 PureView was announced today at Mobile World Congress. It features a large, high-resolution 41 megapixel sensor with Carl Zeiss optics, xenon flash, and runs Symbian. It also includes full HD 1080p video recording. Are Lumia owners considering this device?
Jo Harlow, executive vice president of Nokia Smart Devices:
“Nokia PureView imaging technology sets a new industry standard by whatever measure you use. People will inevitably focus on the 41 megapixel sensor, but the real quantum leap is how the pixels are used to deliver breath-taking image quality at any resolution and the freedom it provides to choose the story you want to tell.”
I find it interesting that the press release did not mention Symbian at all. This is all about the camera. I’m currently at Mobile World Congress, so I’ll upload some hands-on videos soon.
So.. what do you think?
