Nokia 808 PureView – Belle with 41 Megapixel camera

Nokia today ushered in a new era in high-end smartphone imaging with the Nokia 808 PureView. 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.

 

The Nokia 808 PureView features a large, high-resolution 41 megapixel sensor (7728 x 5368 pixels) 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.

 

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.

 

 

The smartphone is powered with the latest Symbian OS version – Nokia Belle Feature Pack 1. It is based on a single core ARM-11 processor running at 1.3 GHz. 2D/3D Graphics HW Accelerator with OpenVG1.1 and OpenGL ES 2.0 support makes good use of 808’s 4″ AMOLED ClearBlack display covered with Corning Gorilla Glass offering nHD (640×360) resolution). The 808 has 512 MB of operating memory (RAM), 16 GB internal storage space and support for microSD memory cards up to 32 GB, 128 MB graphic memory, and obviously all the technologies one might expect from high-end smartphone: Bluetooth 3.0, WLAN 802.11b/g/n, DLNA, NFC, USB 2.0 High Speed with USB OTG 1.3, HDMI connector (and composite TV Out as well), full set of sensors (accelerometer, compass, proximity, ambient light, A-GPS), quad-band GSM and penta-band WCDMA, HSDPA 14.4 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps, FM transmitter and receiver, video calls, Nokia Maps with free car and pedestrian navigation, and more.

 

The camera (as mentioned, 41 megapixels, 7728 x 5368 pixels) has 8.02 mm focal length (35mm film equivalent 26mm @ 16:9, 28mm @ 4:3), f/2.4 aperture, 15 cm to infinity focus range, and a full range of modes, functions and filters known from other high-end Nokia camera phones. It records movies at 1920×1088 pixels @ 30 fps (Full HD 1080p) in H.263, H.264/AVC and MPEG-4. Videos can be edited directly on the device using video editor software.

 

Nokia WebKit browser supports HTML 4.1, HTML 5, Javascript 1.8, FlashLite 4.0 and Flash Video.

Nokia 808 PureView comes with 1400 mAh BV-4D Li-Ion battery providing talk time of 11/6.5 hours (GSM/WCDMA) and standby time of 465/540 hours (GSM/WCDMA). It has both the 2.0 mm and microUSB charging connectors, with USB charging supported.
