Nokia's 808 and 1020 compared in our studio test scene

Nokia's 'Pureview' technology is still making headlines along with the announcement of the manufacturer's first 'phablet', the Lumia 1520. We felt the timing was perfect for taking a closer look at Pureview by testing the original Nokia 808 in our newly revamped studio test scene, and putting it up against this year's version of the tech found in the 41MP Nokia Lumia 1020. See how the two compare on connect.dpreview.com.

41MP Nokia Lumia 1020 brings PureView camera tech to Windows Phone

After months of rumors and leaks, Finnish handset maker Nokia today officially launched its latest flagship Windows phone, the Lumia 1020, at a press event in New York City. As far as we're concerned of course, the most interesting feature is the Lumia 1020's 41MP imaging sensor, an iteration of the groundbreaking technology that Nokia debuted last year in the 808 PureView phone.

Nokia Lumia 920 promises PureView, but it’s no 808

Nokia has announced the Lumia 920, the next generation of its phones to wear the 'PureView' branding but, despite the name, the camera technology isn't up to the standard of the 808 PureView. Rather than the 808's 41MP, 1/1.2" sensor, the 920 has a slightly oversized 8.7MP CMOS. Nokia is still making big claims about the 920's camera capabilities, it has a Carl Zeiss-branded lens featuring ‘floating lens technology’ image stabilization, prompting claims of better low-light performance than other smartphones. The Lumia 920 and the co-announced Lumia 820 both run on Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 operating system – an improvement over the Symbian model on the Nokia 808, which we gave our Gold Award to in our July review. 

Review: Nokia 808 PureView
When the Nokia 808 PureView was announced earlier this year its 41MP camera sensor and innovative PureView pixel oversampling made headlines all over the world. On paper, the 808 offers the most advanced camera features of any previous smartphone. Read our review to find out how it performs.
Concert Footage from Nokia 808 Pureview

Nokia-centric site All About Symbian has posted live concert video footage shot on-stage with the Nokia 808 PureView smartphone. The Nokia 808 has made headlines for its unusually large 41MP imaging sensor and 'PureView' technology, which oversamples to give high-quality 3-8MP output or crops to give effective zoom without having to drop to low pixel counts or upsample. It can also capture full HD video footage and its inbuilt stereo microphone can handle audio up to 140db (louder than a military jet). We'll be posting a report on the 808 soon but, in the meantime, click through to get a taste of the 808's video capabilities in a very challenging (and loud) environment.

Nokia 808 Pureview 1/1.2", 41MP sensor smartphone coming soon to UK and US

Nokia's 808 Pureview, the smartphone built around a 1/1.2" 41MP sensor can now be pre-ordered from Amazon in both the UK and US. This is despite Nokia originally saying it would not be launched in the US. In both instances the phone will be available unlocked and without a contract. As a result, the cost isn't subsidized by a carrier, meaning the handset will set you back £499 or $699 in the US (where it can be used on the AT&T or T-Mobile networks). Amazon says the phone will ship from the June 30th in the UK and July 8th in the US. We've had a brief chance to use the large-sensor smartphone and will be posting a report in the coming weeks, once we have a chance to shoot a samples gallery.

Nokia 808 won't come to North America; 41MP PureView tech probably will

Nokia's developer website is showing the 41MP 808 PureView as being available globally, with the exception of North America. However, Windows Phone website WPCentral is reporting that the company will bring its PureView technology to a phone running Windows Mobile - something likely that become truly global product. Meanwhile, Nokia has published a blog post about the 808's Carl Zeiss lens and how its molded plastic design allows it to out-perform some pro-grade DSLR glass.

41MP Nokia 808 smartphone hints at pixel-combining future for small sensor cameras

Nokia has made the startling announcement that it has created a 41MP smartphone, the Nokia 808 PureView. Interestingly, in most shooting modes the camera will output 3, 5MP or 8MP stills, rather than offering its full resolution - promising greater quality and offering some clever features. And this isn't a trade-show concept model, this is a product that will be offered to the public, though details of when and in which countries haven't been announced. What's interesting isn't so much the pixel count as how it's used, so we took a closer look.
