41 megapixel Nokia EOS to launch as Nokia Lumia 1020?
The true identity of Nokia’s not-so-secret 41 megapixel Windows Phone appears to have been uncovered, putting an end to those rumours of the Nokia EOS that we’ve heard so much about.
Indeed, come July 11th when Nokia takes to the stage in New York City to unveil its big secret, we’ll be seeing a device called the Nokia Lumia 1020. Well, that’s according to Twitter tipsters @evleaks, who, as our frequent readers will know, have an excellent track record when it comes to digging up new information about unreleased smartphones from around the world.
A recent tweet merely reads “EOS = Nokia Lumia 1020”, suggesting that Nokia has a different name for its new smartphone to the one we’ve all been referring to in recent months. @evleaks doesn’t mention a source – they rarely do – but usually their information comes from insiders at various mobile phone companies, including manufacturers and networks.
As for the phone itself, it’s said to offer the same large 41 megapixel image sensor as Nokia’s experimental 808 PureView phone, along with Xenon and LED flash modules, Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia’s new PureView technology. To complement the camera we’re told there will be a new app from Nokia called Pro Camera which will offer a host of advanced tweaks and settings to suit the huge rear camera.
Asides from the camera the phone is said to run Windows Phone 8 and mimic the design of the Lumia 900 and 920, including the same 4.5-inch 720p LED display. We’ll find out more next month!
