Though the 41MP camera of the Nokia 808 PureView left many jaws dropping, but it may not have any such effect on residents of the U.S. and its neighboring countries henceforth. A small specification box on the device details page of the handset suggests that it is not going to North America.
Running the Nokia Belle mobile platform, this smart device is one of the latest additions to the Finland based manufacturer’s range of Symbian operating gadgets. Since being unveiled, it has mostly hit the news for the embedded 41MP camera, which should appeal to avid photographers and even amateurs, as such a high resolution sensor has not been seen in mobile phones so far. Additionally, this handset is the first one to feature Nokia PureView imaging technologies, a blend of Carl Zeiss optics, algorithms by Nokia and high resolution sensors for offering some decent imaging experiences with upcoming products.
But if the spec sheets on the Nokia Developer website’s device details page are to be believed, all these exciting photo-friendly features seem to be giving North America a miss. Reports from Phone Arena suggest that the decision might have been instigated by the low response to the Symbian OS seen here. This also looks evident from factors like the OEM introducing a wide array of Windows Phone gadgets in these regions, especially the U.S.
The Nokia 808 PureView release date and price details for other countries and continents have not been disclosed yet.
