People who are using ink supplies to print out their best pictures may be interested in a new high-resolution camera from Nokia that is part of its new smartphone.

The 808 PureView features a 41-megapixel sensor that the manufacturer claims will usher in a "new era in high-end smartphone imaging".

At standard resolutions of up to eight megapixels, this means a user is able to capture pictures without a loss of clarity even on the highest zoom settings, while high-resolution images of up to 38 megapixels can be cropped, resized and reframed afterwards to reveal previously unseen details.

Executive vice-president of Nokia Smart Devices Jo Harlow said the PureView technology sets a new standard for imaging on smartphone devices.

She added: "People will inevitably focus on the 41-megapixel sensor, but the real quantum leap is how the pixels are used to deliver breath-taking image quality at any resolution."

Nokia unveiled the phone at the 2012 Mobile World Congress Event in Barcelona, which began yesterday (February 27th) and runs until March 1st.
