Nokia 808 Pureview Release Date And Price Are May 2012 For €450

We’ve already told you a couple of months ago that Nokia 808 Pureview might hit certain markets in May 2012. Now we have the official confirmation coming from the Finland-based company. 808 Pureview will debut on both the Russian and Indian markets this month, thus, for the time being, we can’t talk about a global launch, not even about an European one.

Nokia 808 Pureview stands out with its 41 megapixel photo sensor, and the estimated price is €450. Russia and India are the first two countries that will retail 808 Pureview. It seems that these two markets offer huge support for the Finnish brand, so Nokia decided to count on them.

At the moment we don’t know when the smartphone will hit the rest of European countries or the States, but I am expecting Nokia to make it available on more markets by the end of June 2012. I don’t think that Nokia 808 Pureview will enjoy the same aggressive marketing as the smartphones belonging to the Lumia line-up. The Finns created a real buzz around the US launch of Nokia Lumia 900, resulting in huge lines of customers wanting to get their hands on the device. Nokia will probably choose to silently launch the 808 Pureview, the smartphone that will replace their previous camera phone, Nokia N8.

Nokia Pureview 808 was introduced in February 2012 at Mobile World Congress event and it was awarded the most impressive mobile device presented at the Barcelona-based mobile industry exhibition.

The smartphone is leaving the factory gates pre-loaded with Nokia Belle operating system. Nokia 808 Pureview features a 4.0-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display with a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels, a single-core ARM 11 CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz, 512 MB of RAM and 16 GB of internal flash storage, expandable with up to 48 GB via microSD card. The Nokia Belle-powered smartphone sports an amazing 41 megapixel camera with Nokia PureView technology and full HD 1080p video recording capabilities, all these while weighing in 169 grams. Nokia’s camera phone is powered by a 1,400 mAh battery.
