Nokia 808 PureView Review

Nokia 808 PureView – Great news for you who love photography. You can just capture a great moment, view, and event anytime without worrying of leaving your digital camera home. This would be a great breakthrough from Nokia to have created its 41 megapixel camera phone.

Nokia 808 PureView

The 41Mpix phone called Nokia 808 PureView is supported 1.3 GHz, and 512MB of RAM. For the affairs of view, Nokia handed the 4-inch AMOLED screen, along with the protection of Gorilla Glass.

Nokia 808 PureView, equipped with Carl Zeiss lens 808, and can record video with resolution 1080pixel. Not only that, 808 is also equipped PureView Rich Recording technology from Nokia, which appears to be providing quality approaching CD quality recordings.

However, that seems a little less is its shape. PureView 808 has a stocky body, so it will feel full when gripped, and the rear-facing camera is also sticking out.

Nokia 808 PureView smart phone has a body size of 123.9 x60, 2×13, 9 mm and weighs 169 grams. Nokia also pinning ability of near field communications (NFC), Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi, battery with 1400mAh of power, as well as an area of ??16GB of internal storage space.

Nokia 808 PureView release date: in Europe in the coming May.

Nokia 808 PureView price:  approximately 450 Euro.

But still no word on the region of more that will soon be able to obtain it.
