More Sources Attempt to Confirm Nokia EOS PureView Windows Phone 8 Model

Last month, we heard that Nokia’s Windows Phone lineup could soon be following in the footsteps of the Symbian-running 808 PureView and feature the same sort of super-high-megapixel-count image sensor. Now some new sources are talking a little more about this so-called Nokia EOS, and give us a little better idea of when we might hope to see the smartphone launch.

The Guardian has heard from “sources close to” Nokia that the EOS is scheduled to come to the US sometime this summer, a little more specific than the earlier rumors only providing a 2013 estimate. These reports also claim that the EOS will feature a 41-megapixel sensor, just like the one featured in the 808. As a result of all those pixels, the phone’s camera should be able to render beautifully downsampled images, avoiding some of the noise problems apparent in typical smartphone-sized sensors.

Nokia, unsurprisingly, has no comment on the rumors. While the company’s February 25 MWC press event may still be too early to get news of this handset (which still sounds like it’s several months off), we’ll be on the ground at MWC to bring you the company’s latest announcements, whatever they are.
