Nokia has launched its new 808 PureView smartphone which it boasts takes 'perfect photos' with an impressive 41megapixel camera.
The sleek device takes images with its 41megapixel sensor and turns them into 'beautifully detailed' five megapixel shots likely to make it a must-have for snap happy phone users.
These extra pixels will allow camera photographers to take pictures, zoom in, reframe and crop, and still be left with a great quality picture.
A chunky Xenon flash means that owners can capture the moment even in low light, and an LED video light will see users can shoot film after dark too - with recording capabilities up to 1080p.
The phone also boasts a selection of camera-centric apps for the photography-focused phone.
With GetMeRated, users can gather realtime feedback, social networks can be easily updated with Pikchur, a Vimeo app enables high-quality video sharing and Postcard on the Run creates real postcards from images.
The 808 runs on Nokia's Symbian platform and also features a 1.3 single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, a four-inch display and a curved pane of Gorilla Glass which brings it all together.
However, people who like their phones to be compact are likely to steer clear of this chunky device, which has a thick body, while the camera on its back is also fairly prominent.
