As noted by Nokia on its official website that day, the Nokia 808 PureView has a high-resolution 41-MP sensor with high-performance Carl Zeiss optics and new pixel oversampling technology.

According to Nokia, users of Nokia 808 PureView can take 38-MP photos that they can zoom in on to see additional detail and blow up into very large printed images; and can also take 5-MP or 8-MP shots with the camera.

Nokia PureView imaging technology sets a new industry standard by whatever measure you use.” Nokia Smart Devices EVP Jo Harlow was quoted during the 2012 Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in Barcelona, Spain that day.

“People will inevitably focus on the 41-megapixel sensor, but the real quantum leap is how the pixels are used to deliver breath-taking image quality at any resolution and the freedom it provides to choose the story you want to tell.” Harlow added.

In addition, the Nokia 808 PureView has a 4-inch screen with nHD (640 x 360) resolution and features a full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X lossless zoom and the world’s first use of Nokia Rich Recording; with its retail price to be 450 euros (around $605) and is being expected to be available this coming May.
