Nokia EOS Might Be Company’s First Quad-Core Phone

It seems like anyone even remotely interested in Nokia phones has been wondering when the company would bring the 41-megapixel PureView sensor from the 808 to its Windows Phone Lumia lineup. Rumors over the past several months teased at the phone’s reveal, but it continues to be a ghost. Now some new gossip has it looking like the EOS might still be quite a while off, but could arrive with some pretty powerful hardware.

Supposedly, Nokia has been evaluating two different hardware options for the EOS, including both a dual-core and a quad-core version. Ultimately, power consumption concerns could drive Nokia to just go dual-core, but for now that quad-core Snapdragon-800-based design is still on the table.

We’ve already heard that WP8 GRD3, arriving in time for the holiday season, could introduce support for quad-core Windows Phone handsets.

This source offers a bunch of other EOS details, like how it would launch with AT&T exclusivity in the States, have an AMOLED display, and feature an FM transmitter. The camera could also be more than just a 41 MP PureView sensor, featuring a xenon flash like on the original 808 (and now 928) and optics supporting variable aperture.
