Nokia 808 PureView - with a 41MP Camera!

Yep, you read that right - Nokia have announced the upcoming availability of a smartphone with a whopping 41MP camera!

 

I have no idea what the "Nokia Belle OS" is (I've never even heard of it until now!), but this smartphone is an absolute monster and I've gotta be honest, even I'd be tempted to give Sony a miss if this baby came out on Telstra... I mean, it's 41-frigging-megapixels!

 

So, any chance we'll see this appear within the walls on the local T-Life store this year?

 

 

Here's the original CNet Australia article:

And here's the GSMArena entry for the spec-heads:

Edit: Apparently "Nokia Belle OS" is the latest version of what was once known as "Symbian OS":

If in doubt, don't post the information OR ask the Telstra staff if you should post the information - BEFORE you post the information.

It wouldn't be a windows phone now would it?

No, according to Wikipedia, "Nokia Belle OS" is the latest version of what was once known as "Symbian OS" (among other things over the years):

will it have enough memory on board to hold a single photo?

Well see, Nokia neglected to mention that users have to carry around a 50TB external hard drive... In a laptop-sized case. lol

It is only 41 megapixel because of software algorithms. There isn't an actual 41 megapixel lense in there, jeez I would hate the see the size of that phone.

It is an actual 41MP sensor. The resultant photo however will be similar to a 5MP pic in file size, interpolated from the full sensor. Don't confuse photo file size with sensor resolution.

 

Normally if you zoom a 5MP sensor it simply crops the sensor and you lose resolution. eg at full zoom a 5MP camera may only be using 1MP of area in the centre, then this image is stretched back out for viewing making it grainy.

 

However with the 808 at full zoom it will crop down to a 5MP area of the sensor.

The whole point of the massive sensor is so that at worst case, being full zoom,  you still have no less than a 5MP sensor.

So is there any word if Telstra will have this Symbian phone on contract?
