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":

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):
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 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.
