The Last Nokia Handset With Symbian OS

The Symbian OS had dominated the market for quite a significant time period with its user interface versatility and attractive features. It originated in the early 90s and lasted for a little lesser than two decades. Nokia had been the best partner of Symbian and it had produced a large number of hones with this OS.

However, the OS has become almost obsolete now, and for a reason. The complexity it involved was way more than its advantages, and therefore, it led to the downfall of the Symbian. The complex coding structure made it difficult in manufacturing a phone easily. A handset took almost 2 years to be manufactured and this was utterly undesirable. Check out the Origin Of Symbian OS.

Nokia PureView 808

PureView 808 was the last Symbian phone by Nokia. It was launched in the middle of 2012 and it has showcased the imaging capabilities of Nokia to a great extent. The megapixels incorporated in this phone were almost four times the megapixels that came with other smartphones at that time.

The phone has a 16 GB storage space, with a microSD card slot. It has a 1GB ROM and 512 MB RAM. The phone weighs 169 grams and 13.9mm thickness. It uses GSM / HSPA network technology. The display is an AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors.  The phone is 4.0 inches and its cameras have a resolution of 360 x 460 pixels, 16: 9 ratio.
