As the successor of the Nokia N8, which Nokia previously claimed that it's the best camera phone in the market, the PureView 808 has Carl Zeiss lens with Xenon flash, and video recording made better with a LED light, something the N8 lack of! Video recording is available in FullHD 1080p at 30 fps and also 720p@30fps. The large camera sensor definitely benefit when it comes to zooming in camera or video mode.
There's a tiny price to pay for the huge camera sensor (which is 2.5X larger than N8) though. The PureView 808 measures 17.95mm at the thickest point, but I don't think it will burden any camera lovers out there! The PureView 808 runs on single-core 1.3 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM and unfortunately, Symbian Belle (which is giving me problem in my N8). The display is a 16:9 4" AMOLED of nHD (640 x 360) resolution with Gorilla Glass.
So here's a video on the hands-on experience with the PureView 808:
As a Nokia N8 owner myself, I must say I'm very impressed with what Nokia offers in the PureView 808. Most of the high quality car pictures in my blog (with watermark) are captured with my N8, and I bet the PureView 808 will be better! The Nokia PureView 808 will be available in May 2012 (not in Malaysia though) at the price tag of €450.
