Nokia unveiled its latest smartphone, the PureView 808, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. With its 41-megapixel camera, the PureView 808 marks huge leap in smartphone camera technology.
Although more megapixels doesn’t necessarily equate with better picture quality, it enables the photographer to do a lot more post-processing. Photos like those taken with a PureView can easily be cropped, zoomed or edited. Though storing such a large file will undoubtedly be an obstacle for PureView users. My guess is that Nokia will offer some type of cloud service where users can store their photos or at least have external memory cards available.
The Pureview 808 is expected to retail in European markets for €450 or around $600 when it launches in May. There is no set release date yet for the PureView in the United States.
Check out the pictures below the demo pictures by Nokia taken by the PureView. Is the camera photogs have been waiting for? Will you ditch your 8-megapixel iPhone 4s?
