Nokia has decided to outdo everyone by releasing a Symbian phone with a 41-megapixel camera sensor. Yes, really. The Nokia 808 PureView packs the 41 megapixel sensor into its slightly chunky form factor. The 808 PureView has a 4-inch screen, a 1.3GHz processor and 16GB of internal memory. The camera uses a Carl Zeiss lens and has a xenon flash and is capable of capturing images with a resolution of 7728 x 5368.
The camera has a 35mm equivalent focal length 26mm for 16:9 and 28mm for 4:3 aspect ratio. The 808 PureView uses what Nokia terms ‘oversampling’ by taking a group of seven pixels and making them function as one large pixel in order to take 5 and 8 megapixel photos. The camera can also capture 1080P video and has a separate LED to serve as a light source.
