Nokia 808 PureView will not sell at Rs.29,999

Following close on the heels of the ‘price leak’ of the upcoming Nokia 808 PureView, Nokia has mentioned that the reports are false and that price is actually a dummy price and not the actual price of the phone. As reported, a spokesperson mentioned that, "We outsource certain chores, and for that we have to give price related information. So, in such cases, we furnish a dummy price, and not the actual (true) price. In this case also (the one mentioned in the source code), Rs 29,999 is a dummy price and the 808 Pureview will not be available for this price," However, the spokesperson refused to divulge the actual price of the upcoming 41 megapixel monster of a phone by Nokia.

Here’s a look once again at the specifications of the handset:

  • 4.0-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display with a 360 x 640 pixel resolution
  • 1.3 GHz ARM 11 processor, 512 MB of RAM
  • Nokia Belle OS
  • 16GB internal storage
  • 3G, EDGE/GPRS, Wi-Fi
  • GPS with A-GPS support
  • Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, USB 2.0
  • 41 megapixel camera with Xenon flash, 1080p@30fps video recording
  • Stereo FM radio with RDS
  • Memory expandable up to 32GB via microSD card
  • 3.5 mm handsfree socket
  • 1400 mAh Lithium - ion battery


Nokia has also mentioned that the exact pricing will be revealed during the launch, which is going to happen soon enough. However, in what may be a potentially disappointing move, there are chances that the smartphone may be priced above the 30K price bracket, rather than below. It’s simply the best camera phone out there and the ‘leaked price’ so far seemed to be pretty fair. With the release of the handset in the offing now, a big hullabaloo has been created about its pricing. So, we decided to take a step further – what according to you is the best price for the Nokia 808 PureView? Do let us know your thoughts and more in the comments section below.
