Nokia has a phone with a 41-megapixel camera!

Remember when Samsung said they would replace the Finns as top handset maker in the world? Well Nokia seems to be making a statement with their launching of the 808 PureView, a smartphone that has a camera composed of 41 megapixels. Explanation: you have the option to shoot at different resolutions with photos so "pure" that you could find Waldo if he were hidden in a pixel.

Nokia came out with a teaser video days before this announcement, see it right here:

Now that we know what they're talking about, the 808 PureView looks like many Nokia phones. It comes in at 123.9 x 60.2 x 13.9mm but the camera makes it a little bit thicker at 17.95mm. The 808 PureView weighs 169g and has a 4-inch screen (with a resolution of 640 x 360) as well as a 1.3GHz single-core processor. Not exactly stellar specs, but we're really excited to see the 41 MPs captured by a lens "co-developed" by Nokia and Carl Zeiss.

For now it's running on Symbian Belle but apparently it should be available on handsets on Windows Phone as well, when that'll happen remains to be seen. Anyway, you could take a trip to the gallery below for a few more shots of the devices courtesy of The Verge.
