Next Nokia flagship smartphone EOS to feature 41-megapixel camera

The spirit of the Symbian OS-powered Nokia 808 PureView is set to live on in the Nokia EOS if rumors about the device's camera are accurate. According to a MyNokiaBlog source, Nokia is indeed set to include 41-megapixel camera in the EOS, bringing its vaunted camera capabilities to a Windows Phone-powered handset for the first time. Nokia is said to be testing two versions of the handset, one powered by a dual-core chip and the other a quad-core variant.

According to the MyNokiaBlog source, the prototype quad-core model, which is said to be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor, may be too power hungry with the shipping version currently expected to be the dual-core model. The rumored specifications have the EOS brandishing a 2000mAh battery that will also power a 720p AMOLED display with a native resolution of 1280x768. The rumor mill also has the device pegged to launch on the AT&T network first, which gels with Nokia's recent Windows Phone flagship device launches.

Nokia first foray into the Windows Phone smartphone market with a PureView-branded device was its current flagship handset the Lumia 920. However, while it might use some of the optic technologies and software algorithms developed in the 808 PureView, it 'only' uses an 8.7-megapixel sensor. As good as the camera in the Lumia 920 may be, Nokia found itself on the back foot when it was revealed that its early device promos used faked camera footage to help sell the device. This stood in stark contrast to its 808 PureView promo, which was actually shot entirely with the device itself.

    "EOS" is a Canon trademark so not sure how Nokia wis using that (the NewPoster OP is hard to read due to all the tags being displayed and not rendered). Megapixels plays a small factor when talking about image quality but I'd be curious to see how it's images look...
