Pretty impressive if you ask me. Just a shame it doesn't run Windows Phone. Hopefuly Nokia will do what they did with the N9 and rebrand it (Lumia) when WP updates again.

They took it to some Brazilian Favelas for testing? Odd choice. ;)

Maybe these are being built by FoxConn in Brazil, like the new iPhones.

I heard Nokia get blind orphaned children of the Favelas to put each of the 41 million pixels in by hand.
Totally inhumane if you ask me... but to be honest if the signal/noise ratio is good I can look past the exploitation.

Hi guys used to be the occasional lurker on here and am now a registered member :D (the captcha to register is very painstaking to discern btw ;))


Im a huge camera phone fan and I currently have a Nokia N8 so I was eagerly awaiting the news of this device


Im not sure about the rules of posting links yet (to youtube) but hopefully i wont be breaking any by providing this link, its an interview with Nokias head camera guy and he discusses the sensor somewhat and then shows the Camera UI which has a mode for "pros" which allows for a lot of settings you guys might be interested in seeing it

http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=ZheH4PjEows (external link)

the ND Filter has an on/off option (the N8 has an ND Filter but no option to shut it off) and bracketing is built in so you dont need a 3rd party HDR application (like you did on the N8)

lots of cool little options in there imo


and a side note I know many aren't fans of SymbianOS anymore after the N97 debacle but this isn't the same OS (it'd be like comparing Win95 to Windows 8) and even GSMArena calls 'Belle' "almost revolutionary"

I've got Belle running on my Nokia N8 and it runs wonderfully and the N8 has only 680mhz and 256mb ram +gpu

The 808 has 1.3ghz 512mb ram + a GPU + a chip for the Sensor to control scaling


Quit excited over this and looking forward to joining in the community :o

ISO 800 is NOT that impressive, even though it's impressive for a phone.

You gotta be kidding! For the size of the device I would say thats insanely good.

Very good interview. A bit lenghty but towards the end the guy introduces all the "creative" settings you can do with the camera. Thats nice.

Note that the images are only 5 mega pixel. The 41 is used and only 5 extracted. This = 1 MB picture size and good quality.

There are apparently several size options. 8MP and 5MP are options, but according to the publishings I've seen, you can still extract a full 38MP shot, at least at ISO55 and ISO100 (per the samples available).

Judging from the all the youtube comments this phone will end up being great success. When you compare DSLR and this kind of phone, you end up in situation that for the actual daily use of people to "document their life" as the trend seems to be going, This phone will do exactly that. It will never compete with the pro camera market obviously, but for long people had to stick with proper DSLR to make convincing videos and photos or just the hazzle to carry one. Un necesary for daily life, only photogs are OK with it truly. And we ought to know that only thing that matters is how the end result look.

I was personally thinking of going 60D just to have video recording possibility. But this phone got me thinking twice how I want to do it. 40D for photos and 808 for videos of the little events here and there? Maybe...

Image quality is so freaking crispy on this. Throw there a stand and you are ready to capture some nice clips.

I use my iphone for when i need video, Not my 7D..

Sure the 7D is better quality but its a lot less "easy to use" for a quick video to chuck up on youtube when im discussing lenses and such...

Exactly cutting to my point. I have the feeling that the analyst critic and how the shares dropped was mistake from people not understanding the true goal of the whole thing.

Judging the night scene even with moving objects like car Im still impressed.

I find this tech simply amazing, reading the comments of the managers and developers who have spent 5 years working on the device and listening to people, i think this will be better than any camera hone or compact. And what does it say about camera industry if a mobile device company can create this kind of device before they do it, all cameras we see seem to follow very small incremental improvement path - kind of makes you wonder if they are holding back..

Anyway, looking at samples and the fact that Nokia will even provide lens caps and tripod for this device, i find it very hard to justify a compact camera instead of this. The 5mp clean pure view image tech is much more usable IMO to most consumers than poor noisy 12mp that the compacts are now producing.

Of course pros will always need their dslrs for number of reasons, but consumer compacts might be history soon, now that also good zoom capability is available on a hand set.

Interesting times, lets see what apple does :)

That'll be the nail in the coffin of the point and shoot camera then :)

Hi, just registered here (the captcha sucks I agree :P), wanted to read some opinions of the new 808 from some people who know what the heck are they talking about hehe. So I'll just say thanks and please keep going :P

Here's a cool link from gsmarena, explaining how the camera works on this phone: http://blog.gsmarena.c​om …-camera-sensor-explained/ (external link)

Here's a video showing deeply the camera options: http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=SPASkr5C8mU (external link)

(Nokia told they were already aware of the shaking problems and they havent fixed that yet since this was only a prototype, and was going to be all ok for the final version)

And here some nice general review about the phone:
