The report comes to us via The Guardian. It says, “Nokia is finally bringing its “revolutionary” 41-megapixel Pureview sensor to its Lumia range of Windows Phone handsets, according to sources close to the Finnish handset maker.
“The new model will be known as EOS, and will launch in the summer in the US.”
The question is, is the rumour true? Well, Nokia is desperately trying to differentiate itself from the other manufacturers that make Windows Phone handsets such as HTC and Samsung. Having a Lumia handset sporting a 41-megapixel camera with PureView tech may just do the trick.
Currently, the Lumia 920 does sport PureView tech, but not the megapixel count of the PureView 808’s 41-megapixel snapper. Nokia will be holding a press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on the 25th of February. If it is planning to release the Lumia EOS, we’re likely to hear about the device at the event.
When the site asked Nokia to comment about the rumoured device, Nokia’s spokesperson said, “While we are delighted with the attention the Nokia Lumia range continues to gather, it has been our long-held policy not to comment on market rumours or speculation.”
