Nokia 808 PureView with a 41 Mega Pixel camera

What is the greatest number that you have heard when talking about a mobile phone’s camera resolution (Mega Pixels). Personally I have heard about 5-8 MP cameras on a mobile phone, but what’s this. A 41 Mega Pixel camera phone by Nokia has been announced.

In Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress, Nokia announced the 808 PureView, a Symbian Belle device with a 41 mega pixel camera. This has been achieved by combining Carl Zeiss optics and pixel over-sampling technology. The 41 mega pixel does not mean that the quality of the photos are going to perfect, but a great resolution for each picture.

The 808 PureView also has something called Rich Recording which means extraordinarily clear audio (i.e, upto a thumping 140 decibels)

The other specs of the phone are as found in any other smart phone, 1.3 GHz CPU, a 4-inch 360 x 640 pixel screen, 512 MB RAM and 16 GB of storage.

The device will hit the market this month and the price will be around INR 30000 (even though it might not be released in India so soon).

Looking forward to such a camera. Wondering what do we actually do with such a resolution??? And hey guys, you will be seeing such crazy numbers on many nokia phones’ camera resolution soon, so don’t get shocked.

  1. I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this particular problem and it really does present us some fodder for consideration. Nonetheless, from what precisely I have experienced, I just hope as other responses pile on that folks keep on issue and don’t embark on a soap box of the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this exceptional piece and whilst I do not go along with it in totality, I value your standpoint.
