808 PureView, a new smartphone featuring a whopping 41-megapixel camera, will reportedly be released in the UK next month.
Nokia announced the new handset at Mobile World Congress last month
, revealing that it will come with the Symbian operating system, rather than Microsoft's Windows Phone.
Powered by a 1.3GHz processor, the 4-inch screen smartphone features a market-leading 41MP camera and comes with image compression systems to help users share photos.
The camera can take 1080p HD video and has a 4x loss-less zoom, while 512MB of RAM and 16GB of storage is there for holding the super high-resolution images.
According to T3
, online retailer Unlocked Mobiles has now leaked the price and release date for the phone by launching pre-orders on its website.
Unlocked Mobiles claims that the Nokia 808 PureView will become available in the UK on April 23 and be offered SIM-free for the hefty price of £464.98.
The release date and price have not yet been confirmed by Finnish mobile giant Nokia.
Also at Mobile World Congress, Nokia announced an expansion to its Windows Phone-powered Lumia range, including the new budget Lumia 610 and the international expansion of the Lumia 900
