41mp

Nokia will release the upcoming EOS (or just "Lumia 1020") Windows Phone in the UK, according to a report over on CNET. The website notes that a telecoms industry insider has confirmed as much and the handset will not be an exclusive product for the US. We're expecting to see some EOS action on July 11th. Images of the EOS have also been leaked online.

The Nokia EOS Windows Phone, you know the one with the 41MP camera, is now rumored to be knighted the Lumia 1020. The rumor is coming from @evleaks, who has a pretty good track record with regards to Nokia rumors.

The EOS has also received the code name "Elvis" by AT&T, who is expected to be the first to offer the new Lumia Windows Phone.  Which would make the Lumia 1020 a natural progression from the Lumia 820 and 920 which is also offered through AT&T.

Recently we saw the upcoming 41MP Nokia Lumia ‘EOS’ (don’t worry, that’s just its codename) appear in black, metal and even white. We of course revealed that the phone would also come in yellow, especially for AT&T where the device goes by the codename ‘Elvis’.

Earlier yesterday, Nokia teased the monster camera-phone on their Conversations blog by noting there are “41 million reasons” to tune in on July 11th, when the phone is expected to be revealed in New York City for the press.

Looks like Nokia is finally letting the cat out of the bag, if only slightly, on their latest Conversations post from their official blog.

The post, entitled “41 million reasons to zoom in to Nokia Conversations on July 11th”, simply recapitulates the media invite news we reported on last week—namely that Nokia will be holding a press conference in NYC to announce new hardware.

As E3 winds down, an exciting week is still upon us. Nokia just sent out press invites, including one to your favorite Windows Phone site (that’d be this one, folks) for July 11th at 11am.

The focus of the event (yes, we intended that pun):  If we had to bet our life on it, it would be Nokia’s EOS for AT&T, which is expected to punch with a 41MP camera and the latest iteration of the Windows Phone 8 OS.

As if we needed even more photos of the Nokia EOS (we already saw it in red this morning), the expected 41MP camera sporting Windows Phone, yet-another photos has come forward today that shows off the display of the device in bright sunlight.

While we know Nokia has their sunlight readability feature on Lumia phones and that the EOS would have it as well, it’s still kind of neat to see it in its glory (though Nokia must be pretty perturbed at the constant stream of leaks we’re posting).

Nokia still has big plans for their expanding Lumia line of Windows Phones this year with the next big reveal expected later this summer. That subsequent device is expected to be the ‘EOS’, an internal testing name that seems to refer to the Greek goddess of dawn (and not Canon’s brand of cameras).

The EOS is anticipated as the first 41MP camera Windows Phone, based off of the PureView 808 Symbian device, which was released in early 2012.  Ever since that Symbian phone was revealed, a device literally in the making for years, people have wondered when it will transfer over to Nokia’s new darling, Windows Phone.

Starting this past February, reports of a “summer release” began to make the rounds and that now seems to be the case.

The Guardian, no slouch when it comes to news reporting, is citing sources close to Nokia that indeed, the company is getting ready to reveal a 41MP Windows Phone dubbed ‘EOS’. Destined for the US, the high end phone is expected to go on sale in the summer (presumably around May).

Originally reported by the Verge, this is the second confirmation of such an inbound device on the cusp of release.

News of such a phone is expected to be revealed in a few weeks in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress, where Nokia has a press conference scheduled...

Leaked photos of a Lumia Pure View Windows Phone 8 ("Apollo") handset have blasted through the headlines this morning. According to a Chinese website, the handset pictured in this article is a Nokia PureView Windows Phone handset. We know what you're immediately thinking: "Gosh, this is fake or it's a damn ugly concept!". It could well be, but we'd like to take a different view on this one. We previously covered the Pure View technology back at MWC 2012, which left us in awe at the 41MP sensor.

First of all, check out the new Windows 8 logo used on the center capacitive button, a minute detail. Another is the blurred out information (probably device [code]name) in the bottom-right hand corner. Finally we've already seen a Pure View Symbian handset from Nokia. Since they're currently in a partnership with Microsoft, and there are even rumours of upcoming Windows 8 tablets from the Finnish manufacturer, it makes sense (and has been confirmed) for Nokia to bring this new camera-phone technology to Windows Phone to strengthen the Lumia family (if we don't see a second family emerge with the release of "Apollo").

So, back to the alleged PureView Windows Phone. Reported specifications from the slides are as follows:

  • 4.3" Curved Glass touchscreen with HD display
  • 41mp sensor, Carl Zeiss lens and PureView imaging technology
  • 1080p full HD video recording and Rich Recording technology
  • Dual Core processor with Adreno 320 GPU
  • Windows Phone Operating System

The 4.3" curved screen is an interesting feature to say the least. The Lumia 800 features curved glass to wrap it inside the polycarbonate shell, but this is taking things to another level. In the images we can clearly see the glass actually curves inwards. The design would certainly turn a few heads if spotted in public.

With the 41MP sensor, Carl Zeiss lens and PureView Imaging technology, one would expect the end results to be quite spectacular. As well as better image quality, 1080p HD video recording is listed, a feature to combat competitor handsets. Lastly we have a dual-core processor accompanied by an Adreno 320 GPU. To sum up - it'll be quite the beast. The Windows Phone OS already runs smoothly on single-core chips, so we could hopefully see advances made in the gaming side of the platform to really make the Xbox Live integration stand out.

Fake or not, what do you make of the slides? Would you be excited for the 41MP shooter sporting Windows Phone with this design? Be sure to check out our hands-on of the Symbian Pure View device from MWC 2012.

We've played with the Lumia 610 and now it's time for Symbian. But only because the Pure View 808 sports a whopping 41MP camera sensor allowing unprecedented photo taking (not to mention killer audio quality). Allowing you to save in 5, 8 or 38MP photos, it's really quite a technological feat that brought cheers from the crowd when announced.

No doubt, the phone is a bit chunky but what do you expect? To be honest, it's not that bad and we actually like the feel of it in our hands (the thin 2/3 of the body helps in holding it).

While this isn't a Windows Phone, you can bet Nokia and Microsoft are itching to get this on a Lumia, something we'll be waiting for this fall.

Nokia just blew our minds with the Pure View announcement. A Symbian powered device, the 808 features an astonishing 41MP sensor allowing photos to be taken in 5MP, 8MP and 38MP variants.

Photos can also be saved in special formats to allow easy sharing over social networks, email, etc. which will be important due to their potential size. The 808 is expected in May for an estimated 450 Euros.

Of course the big news is Nokia obviously plans to eventually bring this kind of tech our way to Windows Phone. But the OS will need to support that and we bet it won't happen till Apollo this Fall. But you can bet that will be a killer Windows Phone. Kudos to Nokia for the technological leap here.
