The much awaited 41 mega pixel phone of Nokia, the PureView 808, might hit the Indian market in the month of May. Even the Russian market will be one of the first countries, who will be receiving the device.

The Symbian powered phone which was introduced at the Mobile World Congress in the month of February, has a 41 mega pixel camera sensor which is capable of producing stills with a 5 mega pixel resolution. At present the Finnish company does not have any intentions to launch the mobile phone in the US market.

Nokia is also yet to announce the official pricing while the Italian retailers have already started accepting pre-orders of the device from last month priced at 599 euros which makes about $785. The new Nokia 808 PureView is result of around five years of research d development by the company in to the use of ultra high resolution sensors as an alternative to the optical zooms in mobile devices.

The handset makers claims to offer very detailed shots from the camera and in fact the company expects the more common use to be grabbing 5 or 8 mega pixel frames. The only turn off might be the older OS, but the company has assured that the PureView technology will be used in future Windows Phone handsets.
