Nokia has already announced that India would be one of the first countries where the PureView 808 will be launched. However, it is yet to reveal the price or the launch date of the world’s first 41-megapixel camphone. Now the eagle eyes at Androsym have spotted the price in the page source information of the PureView 808 listing on Nokia India’s online store. Checking the source of the page, it looks like the PureView 808 would be priced at Rs 29,999. This would come as a sigh of relief to many who were looking forward to one of the best cameras we have ever seen on a phone after the device was listed on Nokia’s Italy website on pre-order for over Rs 40,000!

However, things can change as Nokia has not yet officially announced the price of the PureView 808 in India. Though with the listing up and a hidden price tag, we can assume it will be launched in India any day now. Read more about the PureView 808 here and our hands-on from MWC here.
UPDATE: Nokia India reached out to us to clarify the situation. The PureView 808 might not be priced at Rs 29,999 after all.
“On any website the source code has all elements the page will display. If we have to show a certain element now or later we have to put either actual value or dummy value on the page. In this case, since we will announce the price at a later stage hence there is a section which talks of the price in the source code and the same has a dummy value, which will be replaced later. This dummy price is not a reflection of the actual pricing of the product,” a Nokia India spokesperson told BGR India.
