Finally the wait is over for the Nokia N8’s successor – Nokia 808 PureView. A power packed smartphone to give a stiff competition to its rivalries. With its groundbreaking 41 MegaPixel image quality, Carl Zeiss lens, and PureView imaging technology, you’ll take the best photos ever with a smartphone. For example, when you want a 5 MP photo, PureView packs the goodness of 7 pixels into 1 for sharp, clear, and ready to share photos.

Film in high definition and hi-fi. There’s 1080p Full HD video recording with up to 4 x lossless zoom that’s smooth and completely silent. And it’s the world’s first device to include High Amplitude Audio Capture. This combines a unique digital microphone and Nokia algorithms to record distortion-free audio at levels of up to 140 dB

Zoom closer and react faster. The camera activates in less than a second so it’s ready to shoot when you need. You can zoom as fast as your finger up to 3 times as close with zero loss of detail. PureView can even shoot smooth Full HD video at 30 frames per second at 4 times zoom.

The drama of the darkness is always a photographic challenge. However, in addition to the Carl Zeiss lens and 41 MP sensor, the Nokia 808 PureView gives you a powerful Xenon flash and LED video light so you’re ready for spontaneous moments when spirits are high and the lights are low.
