Nokia's 41MP EOS Lumia Device Pegged for a U.S. Summer Launch
Update: According to sources, Nokia is working on two smartphone variants with the EOS branding. Although both models are pretty identical in specs, one boasts a dual-core Snapdragon processor, while the other comes packed with a quad-core model. However, it seems that if Nokia can't get enough battery life out of the quad-core variant, they might end up just releasing the less powerful version. Also, these EOS Lumia phones are said to come with a Xenon and LED flash unit, AMOLED screen, built-in optical stabilization, a variable aperture lens and an expandable microSD card slot.
Hot on the heels of yesterday's news about HTC implementing ultrapixel technology in their upcoming M7 device comes another report about cameraphone technology. Nokia, of 41-megapixel 808 Pureview fame, will bringing the famed sensor to its Lumia lineup.
This is not new news however, but its heartening to see new reports from The Guardian backing up the fact that the technology will indeed surface in another line of Nokia products. The 41-megapixel Lumia device will be dubbed EOS, and is expected to launch in the summer in the US. No specifications have been revealed at this time unfortunately.
With Nokia shifting its focus to creating great photography tools - its most recent contribution was the Nokia Lumia 920 and its superior low-light performance -, we are excited to see how this would pan out for the Finnish company in the future, given that its market share has dropped drastically after the entry of iOS and Android devices.
