Nokia PureView 808 Style and Design
The latest (penultimate?) Symbian model from Nokia: the PureView 808, recently arrived on the scene in late June here in the US. Sporting an incredible 41 megapixel Carl Zeiss shooter and running the latest version of Symbian Belle, offering NFC capability and a 1.3 Ghz processor, it ushers in a new age in imaging capabilities to the mobile phone. The phone feels solid in the hand, and the imaging module on the rear makes itself known by the prominent bulge to accommodate the massive camera module. The overall weighty feel of the handset imparts a positive sensation of quality, and the rear battery door houses a 1400mAh removable battery along with a microSIM and microSD slot, to boost memory beyond it’s 16GB of onboard storage.
I’ve snapped a few photos of this PureView 808, in a stunningly attractive Red variant, to share in the photo gallery accompanying this post. Classic Nokia design elements prevail with the 808, featuring clean lines, tapered corners, all in a familiar monoblock form factor. I’ve paired this evaluation 808 along with some of my personal Nokia models to allow for a quick size and design comparison with other candybar models from years past.
I hope to share some photos from the PureView camera itself as soon as I have a chance to snap a few photos. In the meantime, please enjoy the accompanying photo gallery of the PureView 808.
