Nokia 808 PureView bags top award at Mobile World Congress 2012

Nokia is back in the limelight! The Finnish company bagged the most prestigious award at the Mobile World Congress. Their 41-megapixel Nokia 808 PureView has won the award for “œBest New Mobile Handset, Device or Tablet at MWC 2012.”

The Nokia 808 PureView sports a game-changing, best in mobile camera 41-megapixel sensor. With a process called “œoversampling”, PureView can pack seven pixels on a single pixel to store more information that allows for zoom-cropping while retaining the sharpness and details of the image. This makes digital zooming on this device better than optical zooms.

If you want to get to the bottom of this PureView thing, Nokia explains it better here.

It’s a very special device with a special camera technology that made it earn the most prestigious MWC award from leading journalists and analysts at the show.

Jo Harlow, EVP smart devices, told Conversations after picking up the award: “œIt’s a fantastic award because it signifies that consumer experience counts. It’s about tech, but it’s about how tech is used to make a consumer have a fantastic experience. The imaging is fantastic; the audio is fantastic; the navigation technology is fantastic.”

The Nokia 808 PureView is a 4-inch device powered by a 1.3GHz single-core processor and runs on Nokia Symbian Belle. It may not be the best or most powerful smartphone out there but the mobile camera technology on this phone is what made it stood out to be the best at MWC 2012.

    i’ve read the hype about this pureview and seen the sample photos and im quite impressed. what im not impressed about is using symbian. if this is nokia’s plan in getting people to go with symbian then good luck to them. i hope they can slap this to their WP7 phones and i might consider switching OS.
