Last month we reported a news from The Verge that Nokia is planning to release a Lumia Windows Phone handset with 41MP PureView camera internally codenamed ‘EOS’. Well, today a British newspaper ‘The Guardian’ has confirmed the same news again that such device do exists and is coming to US market this summer.
Sources familiar with the Finnish manufacturer’s plans have informed ‘The Guardian’ that the company is planning to launch a new Lumia Windows Phone that will include a similar camera sensor that’s found on Nokia’s 808 PureView handset. The handset is expected to be revealed in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress later this month.
Though its not clear whether the upcoming Nokia Lumia EOS will feature combination of 41MP camera sensor and OIS or just the refined 41MP sensor with Windows Phone replacing Symbian. Also there’s no word on whether it’ll have a Xenon flash as well.
According to The Guardian the device will be launched this summer in the U.S. market. However Nokia declined to confirm the EOS news officially. A spokesman said: “While we are delighted with the attention the Nokia Lumia range continues to gather, it has been our long-held policy not to comment on market rumours or speculation.”
