Few videos claim captured with the Nokia 808 PureView, looking good (and photo samples, too)
There have been a couple of YouTube videos that claimed they have been captured with the Nokia 808 PureView monster that was just announced. We can't disregard them any more, as the new cameraphone king turned out to be everything rumored and even more on top of the cake.

The 41MP sensor means that you are able to do lossless zooming while filming up to 4 times, and the phone apparently has great low-light capabilities, thanks to the huge surface of the sensor, allowing to capture more light compared to the other phone cameras.

The Nokia 808 PureView is able to capture 1080p video, despite the single-core 1.3GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, meaning there should be a capable graphics and ISP chip combo inside. We wish there was no dramatic audio overlay to here the Rich Recording capture, but we'll have one in our hands fairly soon. Have a look at the alleged sample videos with the 808 PureView below and tell us what you think.

UPDATE: We found a few official photo samples on Nokia's Flickr account, too, from some guy's adventurous vacation in Cape Town, which, while not uploaded in full-res, definitely look stunning for a smartphone camera. Here is a link to the full resolution photos, seems about 10MB per piece will be the norm with the compression Nokia has applied.

How will Symbian cope with 41 Megapixels? My E75 was much loved but was so unstable. Love MeeGo and my N9.
