Nokia is to launch a smartphone with a similar PureView camera sensor to the Nokia 808 PureView.
The company recently claimed that it was working on “some very cool PureView products”?and it is being reported that a device codenamed EOS – like Canon’s DSLR camera range – will be the first Windows Phone handset to be as technically endowed as the 41-megapixel 808.
The Verge claims that a high-end Lumia device with true PureView capabilities – not just some of the technologies, as found in the Nokia Lumia 920 – will be part of the Finnish company’s line-up for 2013.
Its sources also say that AT&T will stock the smartphone in the US which, if not the phone previously leaked as the Nokia Catwalk, will sport the same aluminium casing as the Catwalk. It will mark a move away from the general design Nokia has employed with its Windows Phones over the last year, and if a 41-megapixel (with 38-megapixels useable) is included, it could go head-to-head with a new iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S4 on its own terms.
If genuine, the Nokia EOS will definitely improve over the former dedicated PureView device, in that it will also be a decent phone.
