Nokia 808 PureView, the Symbian smartphone that was launched with a 41-megapixel photo snapper on the back, is now available for purchase in India at only Rs. 25,000 ($453 / 360 Euro).The handset can be seen listed on Flipkart with this price tag attached to it unlocked and SIM free (only the black flavor is available there), while being available for the initial Rs. 33,899 ($615 / 487 Euro) via Nokia’s official store.
This is one of the latest Symbian-based devices that Nokia has brought to the market, and became highly popular around the world courtesy of its high-quality 41MP PureView camera that also gave it its name.
However, the handset still has some other appealing features to offer to its users, including a 1.3GHz processor inside, which should deliver great performance capabilities for a Symbian handset.
The specifications list of the smartphone also includes a 4-inch AMOLED 640x360 touchscreen display, along with 512 MB of RAM.
Moreover, Nokia 808 PureView was launched with 16GB of internal memory, and with a microSD memory card slot to expand it.
In addition to the main camera, which can record videos in full HD resolution, the smartphone sports a front snapper for making video calls.
Furthermore, Nokia packed the handset with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, support for 3G networks, FM Radio, Ambient Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Proximity sensor, Magnetometer and Compass.
At the moment, the smartphone runs under the Symbian Belle OS 10.1, gadgets.ndtv notes. With Nokia shutting down the development of this mobile operating system, chances are that 808 PureView won’t taste too many new platform upgrades.
The outer design of the device is rather bulky when compared to other handsets available on shelves today, not to mention that the phone is rather heavy as well, weighing 169 grams. However, its 1400 mAh Li-Ion battery should be able to provide up to 9 hours of talk time.
