Nokia EOS Said to be First Windows Phone 8 PureView Phone

The Nokia EOS is set to be the first Windows Phone 8 smartphone to feature the Finnish handset manufacturer's 41-megapixel PureView camera technology.

In 2012, Nokia released its 41MP 808 PureView at MWC. According to The Verge, a source "familiar with Nokia's plans" claims that the codenamed EOS device will boast a camera similar to the one implemented in the 808 PureView, which suggests the EOS will also offer a 41-megapixel sensor.

Nokia will apparently skip the polycarbonate material it usually instills into its handsets in favor of aluminium on the EOS. The latter material is also said to be the choice for the Lumia 920's successor, codenamed Catwalk.

Elsewhere, according to a My Nokia Blog source, Nokia is apparently set to announce six new smartphones during the Mobile World Congress, which commences during the latter stages of February in Barcelona.

    920 is the first PureView WP -phone. PureView is a brand, not a technology, it just means something new and great camera-wise. The 808 tech is often called PVv1, and the 920 PVv2, to avoid confusion on this matter.
