While we didn’t get a chance to see Nokia’s rumored EOS, a 41-megapixel PureView Windows Phone handset, at the company’s press event the other week, hope remains that this smartphone is still in the running to make its debut soon. We’ve recently looked into rumors from sources claiming to have had a glimpse at the hardware, but weren’t left with a clearer idea of when the phone might launch, other than maybe sometime this summer. Today we start narrowing that down, with a specific launch date rumored.
Supposedly, the EOS could arrive during the second week of July, with July 9 mentioned as a likely candidate. This source confirms much of what we’ve heard about the phone before, including the 41-megapixel count for its main sensor. Remarkably, this won’t be a bulky mess like the 808, and the EOS may actually be thinner than the 920. Nokia is said to have pulled an HTC-One-like taper job to help the EOS feel especially thin.
Suffice it to say, if that’s true it’s going to make an already attractive-sounding phone all the more enticing to users.
