Under the hood of Nokia 808 PureView
7 May 2012 by Olav Hellesø-Knutsen
The Nokia 808 PureView 41-megapixel camera phone has been dissected by the FCC in the US. Take a closer look at the huge 41-megapixel sensor.
We totally understand that what it looks like inside of a mobile phone is for those geeks specially interested in mobile phones, like our readers. But as the Federal Communications Commission in the US has dissected and published a group of detail photos captured of the 808 PureView we though it could be interesting for some of you to see what the large mobile phone camera sensor looks like. The 808 PureView's 1/1.2-inch sensor is almost five times the size of more normal sized 8 megapixel sensors in other smartphones sold today. As you can see from the picture above, the sensor occupies almost one forth of the device width.
Although the sensor has 41-megapixels (7728 x 5368 pixels), the largest pictures produced by the Nokia 808 PureView is only 38 megapixels large. What happen to the three "missing" megapixels is something we explained in the 808 PureView introduction article.
The Nokia 808 PureView will be available in selected markets in May.

WOW...nice dissected view of 41 megapixel camera sensor.
So that square thing is big already? I wish to see iPhone 4S' camera module put side by side with 808's so i may appreciate the size
The Image Below Shows The Image Sensor Integrated With 808 Pureview (Left) And The Image Sensor's Integrated With Galaxy S III (Right) !!!
P.S: The Image Sensor Integrated Into The Galaxy S III Has Exactly The Same Dimensions Of The IPHONE 4S !!!
