Nokia Rumored to Launch “EOS” Lumia Device With 41-megapixel PureView Sensor This Summer

Nokia is now attracting some attention to itself with new rumors of plans to bring its impressive 41-megapixel PureView sensor technology from the Symbian-powered Nokia 808 to the Windows Phone platform. According to The Guardian, the PureView technology will make its debut in a new Windows Phone 8 device, dubbed the Nokia “EOS”. The Guardian goes on to say that U.S. consumers can begin to look for the Nokia EOS launch sometime this summer.

If this pans out to be reality, then the EOS will give future owners the ability to capture images with better color depth, excellent dynamic range, and also lossless zoom technology. This refers to the camera’s ability to zoom without losing image quality. With 41 megapixels, you will be able to crop an image and get a 5- or 8-megapixel image and still maintain that 5- or 8-megapixel resolution. The end result is an incredibly viable image.

A Nokia spokesman replied to the rumors by stating:

“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.”
