Nokia details 808 Pureview release

41Mp camera-phone Blighty bound

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Nokia has said the 808 Pureview - its Symbian-running smartphone with a stupendous 41Mp snapper - will hit shop shelves in the UK later this week.

The Finnish firm confirmed the 808 will roll out on 30 June, with an unlocked, Sim-free launch price just shy of the £500 mark.

While the 808 boasts a 1.3GHz processor, a 4in, 360 x 640 display and 16GB of internal storage, the obvious selling point is its 41Mp sensor with Carl Zeiss optics and 1080p HD video recording.

This is a phone for those with a passion in photography. Get snapping.

If you'd like to experience Nokia's Pureview tech, but don't fancy jumping on the Symbian OS, the company did confirm it would bring Pureview to its Lumia range of Windows Phones too, Howard Forums reports. There's no timeframe for when that will happen, though. ®
