Mobile Phone Nokia 808 PureView – 41 Megapixels!

Nokia has always been famous for creating mobiles-resistant, with good quality hardware and mostly better cameras than the average of the market of mobile phones.

In crongresso of technology that happens in Barcelona this week (28/02/2012) Nokia introduced one more device that promises to heat things up even more the fight for better cameras in mobile phones, is the Nokia 808 with PureView technology.

It is a new approach to the way the picture is treated. Instead of using sensors with huge resolutions to create photos gigantges, both in amount of pixels but mainly with many mega-bytes, the Nokia made different. Uses a sensor of 41MP to sample the image of the real world, but the output is a picture with 5MP. The software of the device gives an account of reducing the image without loss of quality. It also works with videos that can have resolution Full HD (1920×1080).

The most interesting thing is that with the use of this technology the Nokia 808 PureView allows you to zoom in on the image up to 3X without loss of quality. Go dividing the 40MP by half (zoom 100%) in 3 transactions you have the picture of 5MP with no loss of quality.

The lenses used are also Carl Zeiss, of very good quality and the same that was already used in devices Nokia earlier and that made a great success as the N95.

Looks pretty interesting from the videos and descriptions of the site, now missing only expect the Nokia 808 to get to Brazil to see up close how much the photos are really good!

The video below shows a little more about your device (in English). He basically says that it is the same incredible zoom of the camera does not lose any quality.

With respect to multimedia and camera quality I think no one doubts that Nokia may even surprise… but still is it worth it to lose all of the convenience of Android for this?

What is your opinion?
