Nokia releases phone with massive 41-megapixel camera
If a 12-megapixel camera on a phone seemed like a lot, Nokia has gone mad with its latest smartphone.
The new Nokia 808 PureView features a massive 41-megapixel image sensor, which they say is capable of capturing incredible photos.
Nokia says taking a picture at 38-megapixels means users can zoom in and crop an image without a loss in quality. If their YouTube demo video is accurate, Nokia might be on to something remarkable for mobile phone photography.
They also say the phone will capture great photos in low light situations - something we're yet to see proof of.
It's not just all about the camrea - the 808 also features the Rich Recording feature, which is designed to let the phone record CD-quality audio without the use of a special microphone.
Oddly enough, all these great audio and visual features are available on a handset running an otherwise antiquated operating system - Symbian. That's like building a modern train powered by coal.
Perhaps it's just a warm-up for Nokia to release another 41-megapixel smartphone running Windows Phone 7...
