Nokia 808: A phone with a view

Nokia promoted 'game changer in terms of its groundbreaking image technology' - the 808 Pureview smartphone, comes with a 41MP camera. Chipworks has taken it apart.
"When examining PureView’s comparably large size to most smartphones (4.9 x 2.37 x 0.55 inches), and its back protrusion (along the top) one could easily mistake the device for an actual camera. The trade-off of a slightly chunky phone for a high resolution image sensor may be well worth it to certain consumers requiring their mobile devices to capture high-quality images", the tech experts state.

Aside from the phone’s imaging capabilities, the PureView features:
  • 1.3GHz ARM processor with 1GB of RAM
  • Nokia Symbian Belle operating system
  • 16GB internal storage + microSD card slot
  • HDMI and DLNA outputs
  • NFC and Wi-Fi technology
