Nokia 808 PureView includes full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X lossless zoom and CD-like audio recording.
This is the first smartphone to feature Nokia PureView imaging technologies, bringing together high resolution sensors, exclusive Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia developed algorithms, which will support new high-end imaging experiences for future Nokia products.
The camera will use its over-the-top resolution capabilities to "over-sample" the image you shoot, says Nokia, so that if you shoot at 5 MP, each pixel in the final picture will actually use image data from the pixels around it.
In addition to superior still imaging technology, the Nokia 808 PureView, also includes full HD 1080p video recording and playback with 4X loss less zoom and the world's first use of Nokia Rich Recording.
Rich Recording enables audio recording at CD-like levels of quality, previously only possible with external microphones.
The Nokia 808 PureView also features Dolby Headphone technology, transforming stereo content into a personal surround sound experience over any headphones and Dolby Digital Plus for 5.1 channel surround sound playback.
With superior low-light performance and the ability to save in compact file sizes for sharing in email, MMS, and on social networks, the Nokia 808 PureView makes it possible for anyone to capture professional looking images in any conditions.
The device uses a 1.3 GHz processor, comes with 16GB of storage and runs a 4" screen at 360 x 640, which is below HD resolution.
Mary McDowell, the firm's executive vice president for mobile phones, said the company's engineers had been working on the product "for years".
