Nokia event invite sure sounds like a PureView EOS launch

Following months of rumors, the arrival of June has really seen the floodgates open when it comes to leaks of the so-called EOS, Nokia’s first 41-megapixel PureView Windows Phone handset. All those leaks should clue you in that this puppy’s ramping up for its launch, and a new invitation Nokia just began distributing sure does look like it’s talking about the EOS.

As anyone who’s used the PureView 808 can tell you, one of the big benefits of snapping pics with a smartphone packing a huge camera sensor like that is that the need for an optical zoom is mitigated by the ability to just digitally crop and zoom-in on a shot. Unlike the normal sort of image degradation you see from a lower-megapixel camera, which must instead turn to pixel interpolation when digitally zooming, images from a 41-megapixel sensor can be blown-up much larger before they start experiencing the same issue.

There’s still an off chance Nokia could be hinting at something else here, but the smart money’s on the EOS. We’ll be sure to bring you news of the event next month, when we’ll get official confirmation.
