Although for most people, the handset means either an Apple, Blackberry or a Samsung phone, but there are few who would not mind to try out the new Nokia PureView 808 handset. The makers are saying that it is the best camera phone in town.
NOKIA FOR quite some time now is struggling to make their space again in the higher end mobile market. Although, they did come up with a handset like Lumia yet it was no match for Apple or Blackberry. These days if people have the economic freedom to buy a high-end phone, the first thing that comes to their mind is Apple. Thus, in a bid to save some face, Nokia this, time have come up with a handset that they are calling as the best camera phone. Named as Nokia PureView 808, the phone's Unique Selling Point is that it has a 41 megapixel camera. Will that be enough to attract the customers? Let's wait and watch as the phone is being launched in India
The phone was announced previously this year at the Mobile World
Congress, and there was much anticipation for the high megapixel camera phone. A camera with 41 megapixel resolution in a camera is commendable, and whatever other faults Nokia has, one can be rest assured that all its phone have good camera quality, and this particular set would also follow suit in the same path.
Touted as the best camera phone by Nokia, Pureview has the ability to capture image data from seven adjacent pixels and collapse them into one that results in the 5 megapixels of cystral clear clarity as reported by ndtv.com. Video recording with this camera would also be a piece of cake as it would be recording full HD 1080p at 30fps and can zoom upto 6X. The phone also has Carl Zeiss optics, and a dual flash (Xenon and LED).
Look wise, it is no different from a simple touch Nokia phone, if you do not look at the back of the phone. It is the camera placement at the back that makes it different from other handset. Although Nokia is trying to make a niche in the market, it seems that they are not improving the looks or the feel of the phones. In a world of sleek phone, the high-end Nokia phones are boring and lack imagination.
Running on Symbian Belle Operating system, the PureView has a single-core 1.3 GHz processor and 512 MB RAM. With 4-inch AMOLED display with 640x360 resolution and curved Gorilla Glass the phone also features NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB on the go and 16 GB of on-board storage. The phones have a range of colours from the stereotype black to the unconventional green and purple.
