Nokia 808 Pureview smartphone available from £430

UK retailer Expansys has put the Nokia 808 Pureview, which was released at MWC in February, on sale for £430; that’s 14 per cent less than its retail price.

The main selling point of the handset is its massive 41-megapixel sensor which is many times larger than sensors found in other top-end smartphones and is the reason why the 808 Pureview has a bulge at the back.

It uses a five element Carl Zeiss F2.4 lens with a high-strength flash and can shoot full HD videos at 30fps. The rest of the specification, though, is deceptively mainstream.

There’s a single-core ARM11-based processor clocked at 1.3GHz (possibly a Broadcom model), 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 4in AMOLED display with a 640 x 360 resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass and ClearBlack technology, a front-facing camera, DLNA, NFC, Wi-Fi, micro-USB, HDMI, Bluetooth 3.0, a microSD card slot, GPS, Symbian Belle and a 1,400mAh battery.

The cameraphone weighs a whopping 169g and at its thickest measures 18mm - thicker than the Apple MacBook Air. Check our review of the Nokia 808 Pureview.
