The Nokia 808 PureView is a pretty basic Symbian smartphone with one very interesting feature: it comes with a 41 megapixel camera. The camera technology is something that Nokia has been working on for five years, and it lets users capture images with amazing amounts of detail. The PureView mode of the camera records images at 3, 5, or 8 megapixels, and lets users zoom in on their subject without any loss of detail. Likewise the 1080p video mode features lossless zooming while recording.
The 808 PureView is not a smartphone that will appeal to many people, thanks to its high cost ($700) and dated operating system, but it does give us great preview of what is to come in smartphone imaging technology.
