During the Mobile World Congress 2012, there is one smartphone that created a lot of buzz. I am talking about Nokia's best camera phone to date, this is the Nokia 808 PureView. In this article, you will find out what made this handset so special and most-talked about. Read on.
Let's start with the phone's camera. Prepare yourself for what I am about to tell you. Yes, this is no ordinary mobile phone with an ordinary shutter. It features a powerful 41MP shutter and uses the famous Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon Flash. The camera's resolution alone is at a whopping 7152 x 5368 pixels. For a handset to be equipped with such a huge camera digits, this handset can sure beat tons of digital cameras that are out on the market today. But the good news doesn't stop there, this is because this handset features a 1/1.2" sensor size with ND filter and uses up to 4x lossless digital zoom. Again, there are tons of digital cameras that don't even have this kind of aperture ratio. It's amazing how Nokia was able to equip this handset with this kind of camera. You can record videos at 1080p and at 30 frames per second. There is also an LED light and lossless digital zoom included for its video recording capabilities. You will also enjoy a VGA front-facing camera with a 30 frames per second video recording capability.
This camera phone ships with the latest Nokia Belle OS. With this new OS, you will be able to enjoy more home screens (six home screens to be exact). The older Nokia Anna OS can only give you three home screens. So, that's twice the amount of new home screens that you will love on this handset. Another big plus about this new OS is that you will be able to easily read your e-mails.
This handset ships with a 4.0" AMOLED capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 360 x 640 pixels and at 184 ppi for its pixel density. The phone's screen is protected with the tough Corning Gorilla Glass. You will also enjoy the phone's Nokia ClearBlack display. Enjoy richer colors and deeper Black on this handset.
When it comes to the phone's size, it is quite compact despite of its powerful camera. The phone's actual dimensions are at 123.9 x 60.2 x 13.9 mm and it weighs in at an amazing 169 grams only. You will be able to pocket this handset easily unlike other bigger and bulkier smartphones.
As you can see, there are many more new features that you will love on this handset. For now, all you have to do is to simply wait for its arrival which is set for the month of May this year.
There is no other smartphone that can beat the best camera phone to date, the Nokia 808 PureView.
