Nokia on Monday announced two new smartphones during its press conference at Mobile World Congress 2012. The star of the show was undoubtedly the Nokia 808 PureView, a smartphone the Finnish smartphone maker teased last week. Featuring a jaw-dropping 41-megapixel camera, the 808 PureView is a mobile photographer’s dream and a smartphone enthusiast’s nightmare. Why? The 808 features solid specs but it is powered by Symbian Belle, a dated operating system Nokia is currently in the process of tossing to the curb. Spec highlights include the high-resolution 41-megapixel sensor with Carl Zeiss optics and new pixel oversampling technology that allows users to zoom without any loss of clarity when taking pictures at low (2, 3, 5 or 8-megapixel) resolution, Dolby sound and the ability to record 1080p videos. Details surrounding the Lumia 610 follow below. More →
Hey folks. Following Nokia’s early morning press conference here in Barcelona, we got a litttttle bit of hands-on time with the freshly dropped Pureview 808. The software isn’t quite finished yet, but we did get some time to play with the audio recording and camera apps. Really cool stuff, and we can definitely see other manufacturers forced to follow suit. The handset features the flagship 41 megapixel camera, a 4″ screen, 512 mb of RAM with 16GB of onboard storage, a 1.3 Ghz single core chip, and a loft 450 Euro pricetag. Expect to see this sucker in May. Hit the link below to check out the gallery!
