The handset, which runs the Symbian Belle OS, was first shown off at Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona but little hint of its arrival has been given since that point.

However, Nokia said on Tuesday that the phone is available to pre-order from Amazon and that the 808 PureView would start shipping at the end of the month. The online retailer is currently listing the release date as 30 June.

"The Nokia 808 PureView features a large, high-resolution 41-megapixel sensor with high-performance Carl Zeiss optics and new pixel oversampling technology," Nokia said in a statement. "At standard resolutions (2/3, 5 and 8-megapixels) this means the ability to zoom without loss of clarity and capture seven pixels of information, condensing into one pixel for the sharpest images imaginable."

In addition to a 41-megapixel sensor, Carl Zeiss Optics and Xenon and LED flash, the handset is capable of capturing 1080p HD video footage, which can be played back on the device or connected to an external display via a micro-HDMI port.

The 808 PureView, which is likely to be one of the last Symbian smartphones aimed at developed markets and released by Nokia, is priced at just under £500 SIM-free.

Other key specs of the device include a 1.3GHz single-core processor, 16GB internal storage, a 4-inch Corning Gorilla Glass display and NFC capabilities.
