Today is one of the most awaited events of 2012, The Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 in Barcelona, Spain. All the biggest launches are scheduled there and one of the most stunning announcement is already out which is what we are going to discuss here.
MWC 2012 saw the launch of Nokia 808 Pure View with a stunning awesome 41 MegaPixel Sensor equipped with optics from Carl Zeiss, Xenon flash and a LED acting as a video light.
The power packed device runs the Symbian Belle Operating System which is already polished with an Android style User Interface (UI).
The Nokia 808 Pure View works a little different on the Image/Video capture grounds, The 41 Megapixel sensor captures images from seven adjacent pixels and condenses them into one single HD image. This method is known as “over-sampling”.
As expected the Video recording is Full HD 1080p and can be also used as 720p both at 30 fps (Frames Per Second). Video is encoded in H264 and supports Dolby Digital Plus audio recording, with HDMI output.. The image sensor allows 4x zoom in 1080p and 6x in 720p.
So technically speaking the 41 MegaPixel Sensor is able to capture 3 MP, 5 MP, 8 MP, 38 MP at 4:3 Aspect Ratio and 2 MP, 5 MP, 8 MP and 34 MP at 16:9 Aspect Ratio.
The Nokia 808 Pure View has a Single Core 1.3 GHz Processor , 512 MB RAM and runs on Symbian Belle OS. The display is a 16:9 4″ AMOLED of nHD (640 x 360) resolution covered with Gorilla Glass. Inside there’s NFC (Near Field Communication), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB and 16 GB of inbuilt storage.
The Nokia 808 Pure View is expected to be priced at 604 US$ and to be available in market by May 2012.
