Nokia 808 PureView to begin rollout in May
The 808 PureView is set to hit the market in some countries in May.

Nokia will begin rolling out its 808 PureView smartphone in select markets this month.

The Finnish phonemaker revealed that India and Russia will be among the first countries to launch the handset, which comes with a 41-megapixel camera sensor and Carl Zeiss optics, as well as new pixel oversampling technology.

Several awards have been bestowed on the 808 PureView since it was unveiled in February, with the smartphone named best mobile device at this year's Mobile World Congress.

Jo Harlow, head of smart devices at Nokia, claimed PureView has "raised the bar" for the whole smartphone industry with regard to imaging performance.

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

The news comes on the same day that Nokia announced the extension of its exclusive partnership with Carl Zeiss, which has previously produced handsets such as the N8. The two companies first joined forces in 2005.
