Yesterday, in Delhi, Nokia announced its much awaited Nokia PureView 808 which created hype in the technology market because of its inbuilt 41 MegaPixels camera. After the successful launch of the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 7 series, Nokia has come up with another great featured packed phone that is the Nokia 808 PureView.
So is it really a 41 Meagpixels camera phone? No, not exactly. It uses the pixel oversampling technology and a comparatively large image sensor. Pixel oversampling is the combination of many pixels into one perfect pixel.
After all these technical details we tried the 808 PureView. First impression, it looks good but is a bit on the heavier side. The first thing obviously we started with the camera of the phone. The pictures taken were pretty amazing as far as the resolution and color depth were concerned. The detailing was awesome, black color was exactly black. The images which were taken in lowlight were also really good. Focus was equally impressive as you could see the blur of the area behind the subject. The AMOLED display of the phone did justice to the images taken by the phone. The interesting part was that the image size was really less since the phone uses a compression technology for images as well as the videos.
The company showcased some of the videos taken by the PureView in full HD 1080p and we were really impressed by the quality. The phone also supports Dolby Digital 5.0 which really makes the experience a whole lot better.
The Nokia PureView 808 runs on the Symbiam platform which is far behind at this point of time as compared to other operating systems in the market. If the phone had come with the Windows Phone 7 OS like the Nokia’s very own Lumia series, it would be a great product to look forward to. The company said that they will come up with the PureView technology on platforms other than Symbian in future.
Nokia 808 PureView also has some cool accessories such as Tripod and Lens Hardcover to really give you a feel of the camera phone. But all these accessories are additional so you have spend some extra bucks in order to get them.
So if you are really into photography and want an alternative to a point and shoot camera then Nokia 808 PureView is the phone you should be looking forward too. The phone will be on shelves in a few weeks so as per now there is no official announcement for the prices in India. We believe that it will be around Rs.35000 or $700.
