Nokia has announced that its new 808 PureView Belle smartphone is now ready to be released in select markets around the world. The first countries to get the handset (sometime this month) will be India and Russia.
Likely the best camera phone made until now, the Nokia 808 PureView features a 41MP Carl Zeiss sensor with pixel oversampling technology, which should allow photos to have “previously unseen levels of details.” The handset will come with a suggested retail price of €450 ($590) before taxes and subsidies.
While announcing the availability of the 808, Nokia Head of Smart Devices Jo Harlow said: “We’re going to carry on developing PureView for our future smartphones in ways that will again revolutionize the imaging experience.” So it’s obvious that the technology will make it to Windows Phone, as previously rumored.
For the moment, there’s so word if the 808 PureView will be available in North America. But we’ll let you know if we hear anything about this.
