I’ve always been a fan of Nokia’s cameraphones because it meant carrying one device instead of a point-and-shoot camera AND a phone. In regards to imaging, my favorites were the Nokia N93, N82, N86 8MP, and the N8. Nokia recently announced the 808 PureView which is going to be Nokia’s best imaging phone yet. I’ve played with the device at Mobile World Congress and was impressed especially with the technology behind it. There’s just one problem. It’s not a Windows Phone device.
According to a recently discovered official Nokia developer page, the Nokia 808 PureView is going to launch globally except North America. This shouldn’t surprise anyone that follows Nokia news since Nokia’s US president told everyone months ago they’re going to stop selling Symbian phones in North America when Nokia Windows Phone devices launch.
I can talk to Damian Dinning, Nokia’s head of imaging experience, about cameras for hours, but edited this video down to just 5 minutes. In this video, he talks about the PureView Technology that was introduced in the Nokia 808 PureView. PureView is the combination of high performance optics, high performance sensor, and Nokia industry-leading image processing algorithms.
We get a first look at the Nokia 808 PureView during Mobile World Congress. It has a whopping 41 megapixel camera. It’s not all about megapixels though. Out of the box, Nokia turns on PureView mode which lets you shoot 3MP, 5MP, or 8MP. This gives the Nokia 808 the ability to zoom without loss of clarity and capture pixels of information, condensing into one pixel for the sharpest images imaginable.
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?
The successor to the Nokia N8 will be called the Nokia 808 PureView according to Pocketnow. It will be one of six devices that Nokia is reportedly going to announce at Mobile World Congress. Our favorite mockup artist @brianmfb quickly got to work and rendered the next rumored cameraphone king. Check it out.
