Obviously, there’s a buzz around about Samsung Galaxy SIII, which has got pre-orders of 9 million since May 3 of this year. But, the price of the device for the Indian is still languishing, it costs Rs 42,500. That’s why, majority of users (those are willing to buy Smartphone) are looking for some other alternatives. However, it might be a good hearsay for them that Nokia and Sony have come with their latest Smartphone. Now, users have three options to choose–41 MP Nokia 808 PureView, Sony Xperia Miro and Xperia Tipo. Before going further, it’s important to explain these Smartphones in nutshell.

Nokia 808 PureView

First time, Nokia unveiled its 41 MP Smartphone at MWC in February this year. After long await, it’s available in India for different prices as offered by variant online retailers. However, the official price of the device has been kept for Rs 33,899, but users can buy the device for INR 32,000 at Buytheprice.com and for INR 32,499 at Saholic.com .


The device has 4-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 360 x 640 pixels resolution, 1.3 GHz ARM 11 processor, 512 MB of RAM and 16 GB internal memory (could be expanded up to 32 GB), Bluetooth v3.0, Wi-Fi, 3G connectivity support, GPS support, Near Field Communication (NFC) ability, Stereo FM with RDS and Micro USB 2.0 port. It has 41MP rear camera (Carl Zeiss optics), which can record full HD videos (1080p) at 30 frames per second (fps) and a front VGA camera for video calling.

Sony Xperia Miro

Sony has decided to launch its both Smartphones (Tipo and Miro) under INR 15,000. The device will be powered by Android Ice Cream Sandwich and it would have deep integration of Facebook through contacts, photo gallery and music player. The device will be launched in Q3 of this year with pre-installed unlimited music from Sony Entertainment Network.

The device has 3.5-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen with 320 x 480 pixels resolution display, 800 MHz Cortex-A9 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory (could be expanded up to 32GB with microSD card), 5 MP autofocus rear camera (which records VGA videos), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G support, micro USB 2.0 port, GPS support, 1,500 mAh battery and a stereo FM radio with RDS. The device will be available in Black, white/silver, white/gold and Black/pink.

Sony Xperia Tipo


It has 3.2 inch TFT capacitive touch screen with 320×480 pixels resolution, 800 MHz Qualcomm processor, 512 MB RAM, 2.9 GB internal memory, 3.15 MP rear camera (no any front facing camera), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 3G support, micro USB 2.0 port, GPS support and a stereo FM radio with RDS.

The dimension of the device is 103mm x 57mm x13mm and its weight is 99.4 gm. It has also 1500 mAh battery and the company has claimed that it is capable to provide 5 hours of talk time and 470 hours of stand-by-time. It will be available in four different colors—Classic Black, classic white, deep red and navy blue.

Clearly, both Sony’s Xperia Mico and Tipo have Android ICS OS and they are being powered by 800 MHz Qualcomm processor. But, Nokia’s Belle Symbian seems somewhat obsolete compare to Android ICS, but the processor speed (1.3 GHz ARM 11 processor) of  “808 PureView” Smartphone is better than Sony’s Xperio models (Miro and Tipo) .

However, I think 5-8MP cameras are sufficient to fulfill all pre-requisites of users, that’s why, using 41 MP camera in the device is not prudent idea. Previously, I have already described that Nokia808 Pureview comprises tiny sensors and unsophisticated lenses, that’s why, it could be demarcated with size and quality limits. Indeed, the company is using a material of 41 Megapixels but producing an output of 8 MP through its new Smartphone.

In terms of price, the cost of Nokia 808 PureView costs is two times of both the models of Sony Xperia (Miro and Tipo). Obviously, the price would play a vital role in the shipments of these devices. However, Nokia has good reputation in India and its 41 MP Smartphone might lure camera fanatics across the country. Anyway, Nokia 808 PureView is no way vulnerable than both the models of Sony Xperia.
