Noa N7 smartphone captures 80MP images with 'high-resolution mode'
Lesser known Croatian brand Noa might not be the first manufacturer that springs to mind when you think about mobile photography, but the company will be launching a new mid-range device with some very interesting imaging features at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of this month.
The Noa N7 comes with a dual-camera setup that features two 16MP Sony IMX298 1/2.8" image sensors. At this point, there's no further detail on how the two cameras play together, but we would assume there will be a shallow depth-of-field simulation mode and some kind of computational merging for better detail and reduced noise.
What the camera will definitely feature, however, is a 80MP high-resolution mode, presumably using image data from both lenses in combination with a pixel-shift technology. Looking at the demo video below, it seems the mode will require a tripod, but that's still an attractive option for landscape or architectural photography who require maximum detail.
Main camera aside, the phone will offer a ceramic casing, Face-ID unlocking via the front camera, DTS stereo sound and an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 chipset. Images can be framed and viewed on a 5.7-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio, and HD+ resolution.
If the 80MP mode has sparked your interest, the Noa N7 might be worth a closer look. Fortunately, the high pixel count won't come with an expensive price tag—Noa says the N7 will retail for about 250 EUR ($US 310) in Europe. We are looking forward to testing the high-resolution mode at MWC, so stay tuned!

NOA will focus on its latest smartphone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona - NOA N7, with a 5,7 HD+ screen with an 18:9 screen ratio. Ceramic case, improved photography, Face ID and Face Beauty functionality along with an affordable price are the main key selling points of this new model.
The first two thing you'll notice about this model is its design and a wonderful „royal blue“ color of the ceramic casing. This smartphone's subtle elegance will certainly be noticed by everyone around you.
What makes this phone especially noticeable is the photo detailing and its quality, something that you'll experience when you zoom in the photo and notice the perfectly rendered details. The N7 model will feature 2x 16 MP back Sony cameras with an IMX 298 sensor, which enables the creation of photographs up to 80 MP using oversampling technology.
The front 16 MP „selfie“ camera will support „Face ID“ and „Face Beauty“ functionalities. This means that you'll be able to unlock your smartphone by scanning your face, which adds extra functionality in this price range, and rounds our the feature list with attractive and novel technologies. Your selfies will look sharper, more detailed and be of better quality. Thanks to the „Face Beauty“ feature, you'll always look your best in photos, whether you're taking them in the morning or evening.
Users who like to listen to music will also enjoy themselves with NOA N7, thanks to the world famous DTS sound technology. DTS Sound is an all-in-one audio solution that offers improved stereo sound quality, internal speaker optimization, and creates a panoramic audio experience while using earbuds.
NOA N7 is based on the 8 core Media Tek MT6750 processor with a 1,5 GHz frequency and a 5,7'' screen. The screen resolution, complete with HD+ technology is 1440x720 pixel and an 18:9 screen ratio. NOA N7 will have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ROM storage, expandable to 128 GB with the help of an SD card. NOA N7 comes with a 3.300 mAh battery and will use the latest Android 8.0 as its operating system.
NOA N7 smartphone will be in the price bracket of up to 250 EUR.
