According to The Verge, “Nokia is planning a true PureView Windows Phone.” It adds, “Codenamed EOS, sources familiar with Nokia’s plans have revealed that the device will include a similar sensor that’s found on Nokia’s 808 PureView handset. The upgraded sensor for Windows Phone means the EOS will be ranged as a high-end Lumia in the company’s range of devices for 2013. We understand that the EOS will be built using aluminum, rather than the typical polycarbonate found on recent Lumia Windows Phones.”
Aside from the PureView Windows Phone handset, the site also says that the successor of the Lumia 920, codenamed the Catwalk, will sport an aluminium body. This lines up with past rumours. Furthermore, it says that a Windows RT-powered Nokia tablet is in the works. The site says, “Nokia is also building its own Windows RT tablet that is set to debut in early 2013.”
Although a PureView Windows Phone handset sounds good and all, it remains to be seen how it does against the completion. With sure hits such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the iPhone 5S (or whatever Apple plans to call its new handset), the success of Nokia’s handset is uncertain.
