Today Nokia launched the new Nokia 808 PureView, a Symbian Belle powered smartphone that offers users the power of a real 41 megapixel camera sensor that promises to offer an incredibly versatile photography experience.

The high-density sensor, paired with a Carl Zeiss lens will allow the phone to shoot high-detail images at more standard 5 and 8 megapixel resolutions while still providing the benefits of large 38 megapixel images that the user can crop down as needed. Additionally, the high resolution sensor means that the phone can record 1080p HD video with 4x digital zoom with no loss of detail. The camera's lens features an aperture of f/2.4, and there is a Xenon flash available for when more light is needed.

The 808 PureView also offers advances in audio, being able to record CD-like audio and supporting Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound.

While Nokia failed to mention it in its presentation at Mobile World Congress, we're going to have to assume that the 808 PureView can be used to make phone calls, as well. They did call it a phone, after all.

The 808 PureView has a 4-inch, nHD (360 x 640 pixel) AMOLED ClearBlack display with Corning Gorilla Glass. It measures 123.9mm x 60.2mm x 13.9mm, weighs 169g, and has a 1,400mAh battery good for 6.5 hours of 3G talk time or 22.5 days of standby.

Nokia did mention that the 808 PureView would sell for 450 EUR and go on sale in May of 2012. The company did not list which markets it plans to launch the smartphone in.
