Nokia's 808 PureView megapixel-monster phone to launch this month

Nokia-808-PureView-top.jpgNokia’s 808 Pureview handset, the 41MP cameraphone monster first revealed at Mobile World Congress 2012 back in February, will launch this month, the Finnish mobile giant has confirmed.

The culmination of five years of research into ultra high definition sensors from Nokia’s imaging teams, Russian and Indian consumers will be able to get their hands on the phone before anyone else, with more international territories expected to follow shortly afterwards.

Though massive images can be taken with the handset, Nokia expect people instead to crop 5MP or 8MP images from the larger images, effectively getting the same detail as you would from a high-spec optical zoom-packing camera as a result.

If the phone has one glaring failing, it’s Nokia’s choice to opt for the Symbian OS rather than to build a Windows Phone handset. However, Nokia have expressed interest in bringing the PureView technology to their Windows Phone range in the future, and with Nokia having extended their partnership with imaging experts Carl Zeiss, we’d expect to see some Windows Phone high-spec camera fruits in the near future.
