Although it hasn’t put up a press release or anything like that, Nokia has confirmed that its 41MP PureView 808 cameraphone is going to be officially released in the US – as expected from last week-end’s Facebook tease.
The PureView 808 is now sitting comfortably over at Nokia USA’s website, with a “coming soon” notice attached. The handset features quad-band WCDMA connectivity (850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100), so it will have 3G on AT&T’s network, but not on T-Mobile’s.
Unfortunately, for the moment we don’t know exactly when, and neither for what price the PureView 808 will be launched in the US. What we do know is that it offers the best imaging technology ever found on a smartphone. Other than that, it’s got Belle OS (ex Symbian), a 4 inch ClearBlack display with 640 x 360 pixels, Wi-Fi, NFC, DLNA, HDMI, 512MB of RAM, 1.3GHz single-core processor, 16GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. More info about its specs and capabilities can be found here.
Update: Nokia says the 808 PureView will be available via Amazon US for $699 unlocked.
