Nokia records 808 PureView promo with phone itself

Promo video shot with 41MP Nokia phone

In a stylish new promo video (below), Nokia has chosen to show the photo and video capturing prowess of its 41-megapixel 808 PureView smartphone. Instead of simply recording the phone at work, the video itself was shot entirely using the 808, taking advantage of its 41-megapixel resolution to zoom in and out of scenes without losing detail.

Shot across a range of locations, the video shows the phone being used to capture photos and video of an array of colorful scenes. Meanwhile, the ad touts the responsiveness and social awareness of the device, focusing on sharing the images and videos users would generate.

The camera is the major selling point for the PureView, which will be one of the last smartphones from Nokia running on its soon to be defunct Symbian OS. In addition to 41-megapixel image capture, the phone can record 1080p video and record sounds as loud as 140dB without clipping or harsh noises. Electronista recently went hands-on with the PureView, finding it a tempting option, if only for the camera itself.

The reliance on the Symbian OS, as opposed to a more vital platform, was a negative point, though Nokia representatives have raised the possibility of the phone moving to the Windows Phone platform, which could amount to something of a coup for Microsoft.
