Nokia Unleashes the 808 PureView With a 41-Megapixel Camera

At Mobile World Congress 2012, happening now in Barcelona, Nokia raised the bar by announcing the 808 PureView – a new smartphone with a whopping 41-megapixel camera. It uses the Symbian Belle OS and sports a 1.3GHz single-core chip, a 4-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display with a 360 x 640 resolution, 512MB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage (which is expandable via microSD). The phone has a pentaband modem, allowing better signals while traveling abroad.

And then there’s the camera. It’s capable of continuous-focus 1080p, but when taking still shots, that’s when the supposed 41-megapixels come into play. If you’re taking 16:9 images, you’ll get 34-megapixels, which is only slightly less amazing.

While I applaud the PureView just for being the impressive bit of technology that is, it does make me question whether or not a camera enthusiast would just be better off getting an actual camera. Symbian Belle is far from the most popular OS and the powerful camera makes an already large phone even larger. It almost feels like, camera aside, it’s a step in the wrong direction.
