That’s right folks. It looks like the East is becoming the new test bed for the tech giants in the West. First, Intel announced they would be getting into the smartphone game by introducing its chip in the Xolo X900
. Following Intel’s move, one of the stars of the 2012 Mobile World Conference, the Nokia 808 PureView
that is equipped with a mindblowing 41 megapixel camera sensor with Nokia Pureview Pro imaging technology and Carl Zeiss optics is going to be introduced in Russia and India (before the rest of the world) this month
Along with that crazy 41MP camera, you can look forward to 16GB built in memory expandable to 32 or 48GB, 4″ display at a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels, gorilla glass touchscreen interface, Nokia’s Symbian Belle operating system, HD video recording at 30 frames per second, 4x digital zoom, xenon flash and a dedicated graphics processor with a 3D image engine that will surely come in handy for those handheld games that are all the rage these days.
Pricing and the exact launch dates have not been announced yet but we will be on the look out for when they do. Stay tuned!
Update: Here is some additional information on the camera from Nokia’s press release. “The Nokia 808 PureView features a large, high-resolution 41 megapixel sensor with high-performance Carl Zeiss optics and new pixel oversampling technology. At standard resolutions (2/3, 5 and 8 megapixels) this means the ability to zoom without loss of clarity and capture seven pixels of information, condensing into one pixel for the sharpest images imaginable. At high-resolution (38 megapixels maximum) it means the ability to capture an image, then zoom, reframe, crop and resize afterwards to expose previously unseen levels of details. 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.”
