Jo Harlow, head of smart devices at Nokia said: "PureView has completely raised the bar on imaging performance for the whole smartphone industry - and Nokia is not stopping here,"

"We're going to carry on developing PureView for our future smartphones in ways that will again revolutionise the imaging experience."

The 808 PureView runs on Nokia's Symbian operating system and has an astounding 41Mp Carl Zeiss camera. The Finnish firm calls it the industry's highest level of smartphone imaging – most high-end smartphones have an 8Mp or 12Mp camera.

Nokia has equipped the 808 PureView with a 1.3GHz single-core processor, a 4in screen and 16GB of internal storage for all those photos. It also records video in full-HD 1080p quality.
