Yeah, you read that right. Nokia has really introduced a mobile phone(not a camera, mind you) with 41 freakin megapixels...!

The Nokia 808 Pureview was announced at the Mobile World Congress 2012. Nokia needed to do something extraordinary in order to stand out among the Monster Droids that were to be announced at the MWC and did they deliver.!

Here is what it offers specs wise-

SCREEN:- A 4-inch AMOLED touchscreen with nHD (360x640p) resolution. Its protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and can display 16 million colors.

CONNECTIVITY:- 3G, WIFI, Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC.

MEMORY:- 16 gb internal memory which is upgradable to 32 gb via microsd. 512 mb RAM

OPERATING SYSTEM AND PROCESSOR:- Symbian Belle which runs on a 1.3 Ghz Arm 11 processor.

CAMERA:- A whopping 41 megapixel camera with autofocus, Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon AND Led flash, 3x lossless zoom and face detection. It can also record videos in full HD at 1080p and 30 fps. The secondary video camera can record VGA videos at 30 fps.

Probably the only fault you can find with this phone is the Absolutely Obsolete Operating system. Why Symbian you ask ? It is because the Pureview project was started 5 years from now. A time when Nokia's current flagship OS Windows Phone Mango was not in existence.

But ofcourse there are rumors of a Pureview camera coming to a Lumia device too. The Nokia 808 won the MWC'S Best New Device Award but Nokia's shares fell 6% after the device's announcement. The camera samples from the device look promising but practically who needs a 41 mp camera ? The phone will be available 2 months from now and the pricing is unknown.
