PureView XperiaThe Nokia 808 PureView will undoubtedly be crowned the camera phone king when it is eventually released with its 41MP camera sensor in tow. With that many pixels to hand it means that the 808 PureView can use pixel oversampling to create a single (super) pixel combined from the surrounding pixels. In theory this means much less noise compared to current camera phones and no loss of detail when using the digital zoom. It’s a great technology that shows Nokia really is on top of their game when it comes to camera phone technology.

The guys over at PureViewClub compared the video recording of the Nokia 808 PureView against some other great camera phones including the Sony Xperia S, Samsung Galaxy S III and Nokia N8. They shot some 1080p video footage on a bridge over some moving traffic. It’s a bit difficult to get a true sense of how each fares as the angles are slightly different for each phone. The Xperia S has some very realistic colours to our eyes, much better than the Galaxy S III but probably a close second to the 808 PureView. Which one gets your vote?
