I often believe that one of the best adverts for a device is when its maker is able to showcase its features using images or footage produced directly by it.

This is especially true of the Nokia’s latest promotional video for its new 808 PureView smartphone, which was created using video and image stills taken using the smartphone itself.

With its 41MP image quality, Carl Zeiss lens, and PureView imaging technology, Nokia demonstrates the imaging capabilities of the device front and center, but also shows off its social capabilities, really appealing to those who want the very best optics in their smartphone device.


The 808 PureView may have its detractors, but it’s hard to deny that the video isn’t impressive.

The Nokia 808 PureView is a Symbian device, not a Windows Phone smartphone. That said, it still sports a 4-inch 16:9 nHD (640 x 360 pixels) AMOLED screen, 1.3GHz single-core SoC, 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.

We can expect the Nokia 808 PureView to start shipping in May, with Nokia not yet releasing its suggested pricing.
