Nokia 808 PureView, the famous Smartphone equipped with a 41 MP camera was captured in images again, this time in an official way. This creation of Nokia has a pretty good design, even if the thickness of the plastic casing and trim look are not at the level of competition. The phone is addressed to a special segment of users, primarily interested in photography skills and not necessarily a slim and stylish design.
If judging by the appearance, Nokia 808 PureView can be a misleading appearance, but under the hood lies a powerful hardware with excellent multimedia skills. For example, audio files stored in the internal memory of 16 GB of memory (expandable to 32 GB with microSD card attached) can be played in Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 format on television or home theater audio system connected to the HDMI output. Also, the presence of Dolby Headphone certification promises a compelling listening experience and the use of a headset.
Nokia boasts the new 808 PureView for its shooting skills, explaining that is the first device able to record sound without distortion, obtained at a higher level of sensitivity of human hearing. In theory, this allows users to capture audio details that go beyond the human hearing, completing the picture quality coated with super-camera.
About the camera, Nokia admits that the pictures are not saved at a resolution of 41 MP, but are scaled by a process called oversampling, able to combine up to seven pixels in one. The resulting images will have an effective resolution of about 5MP, but has much less background noise and distortion, resulting in apparent quality level up to three times that of an ordinary picture. Theoretically, we can zoom in such an image to at least 3X factor, without seeing a noticeable decrease in the level of detail.
To make it possible to obtain these images, Nokia 808 Pureview is equipped with a 1.3 GHz processor and 512 MB RAM. The operating system is Symbian Belle.
In images we can see the presence of a dedicated button for pictures, volume slider and adjust zoom function, also the screen lock button. Along with the camera flash can be observed and a generous sized cutout for external speaker.
