article imageNokia unveils the world’s first 41MP camera for a smartphone

Barcelona - The technology giant Nokia have revealed their latest gadget: a 41-megapixel smartphone called the 808 Pureview. The phone, however, does not use one of the more popular operating systems.
Nokia have unveiled a new smartphone and one which comes equipped with a 41-megapixel camera. The smartphone is the 808 Pureview and it uses the Belle operating system (very similar to the Symbian operating system), rather than the Microsoft Windows Phone software (which is more common for current Nokia devices).
The phone was shown at the Mobile World Congress, currently being held in Barcelona. The Finnish manufacturer Nokia are launching the phone in an attempt to make up lost ground to the iPhone and Android phones.
The BBC notes that the functionality of the 808 Pureview’s camera rests on the quality of the images, a x3 zoom, the ability to take picture under low-light conditions and a means of compressing the very large files in a way which means that they can still be shared through email and text messages. In addition, CNet notes that the smartphone has a 4-inch screen, with a 640 x 360 resolution, and 512-megabytes of RAM together with a 1.3-gigahertz single-core processor.
The Daily Telegraph quotes Chief Executive Steven Elop as remarking that Nokia had taken "the actions necessary to improve the fortunes of Nokia".
There are some doubts about how successful the phone will be. Mashable notes that the Symbian system is generally regarded to be inferior to the Google, Apple and Microsoft varieties, so much is resting on the camera. To this, though, the LA Times states: “The world doesn't seem to be crying out for even more detail from their smartphone photos”.
The Mobile World Congress is an industry trade fair, taking place between 27 February to 1 March at Fira Montjuïc in Barcelona, Spain.
