About a month ago, we got our first look at what is rumored to be the next big thing from Nokia camera-wise. Codenamed the ‘EOS,’ a few sources leaked IRL photos of the upcoming smartphone, showing off the bulging PureView camera module on the back and encouraging many consumers who believed that this would be Nokia’s stateside version of the company’s 808 PureView.
Now, we have a couple of leaked low-res product shots to corroborate those IRL images, and a potential release date that has the phone making an official appearance before month’s end. Read more…
Nokia recently put together this ad for the new 808 PureView — their 41-megapixel monster of a camera phone — that they claim was shot using only the smartphone itself. Cramming too many pixels on too small a sensor rarely leads to good results, but sample shots and video in the ad don’t look bad at all. Of course there’s probably a “real-life results will vary” tag in fine print somewhere that we’re missing; but where the pixel race is concerned Nokia have definitely proved that they are winning.
Unfortunately, as we’ve mentioned before, Nokia aren’t going to sell the phone in North America.

Nokia dropped a bomb on the cameraphone market today by introducing its new 808 PureView phone — a phone that is capable of capturing 41-megapixel photos. The native resolution of the phone (16:9) produces 38-megapixel images measuring 7152×5368. The phone also allows you to capture 5-megapixel images by condensing every seven pixels into one, which dramatically reduces noise and improves image quality. Other features include a 4-inch screen, 16GB of built-in storage, a Carl Zeiss f/2.4 lens, lossless digital zoom (i.e. cropping a photo out of the giant image), and HD video recording. It’ll hit store shelves in May at a price of €450 (~$600).
