Nokia presented Nokia 808 PureView cameraphone monster
We must say that Nokia 808 PureView does not use all 41 megapixels but only 38 as the maximum. The resulted stored picture in flash memory will be just five interpolated megapixels, also it can be 8 Mpx . This is because the Nokia 808 PureView uses seven pixels in each resulting pixel to be able to zoom in and get very clear pictures even in the details.
Device got thick upper part where the camera module requires extra space so it looks more like digital camera from behind than cellphone. Nokia PureView is a phone running Nokia Belle and it will cost around 450 Euros and is expected to be shipped in May 2012.
