So we know that the successor to the Nokia N8 was on its way, and Nokia teased us about a week ago with a “PureView” video. Well if you enjoyed the N8′s camera but you’re on the lookout for an upgrade, then the recently announced Nokia 808 PureView whose image sensor could rival some DSLR cameras could be the phone that you are looking for.
Nokia sure took our breaths away and wowed the audience when they announced the Nokia 808 PureView, an phone with a whopping 41MP image sensor! Now before you freak out and think how much memory all of this will consume, fret not as the technology behind it uses oversamples, which takes the image data from seven neighboring pixels and consolidates it into one pixel’s worth, ultimately leaving you with an image that’s about 5MP in size (it can record in 8MP or 38MP quality as well). While the samples Nokia showed us on the screen were impressive, we’d like to see for ourselves how it handles in real-life scenarios.
