Ever since the launch of Nokia 808 PureView, there has been speculation regarding Nokia launching a similar camera smartphone based
on the Windows Phone OS. We heard about this earlier in the year, when
a report emerged indicating Nokia is planning to launch a 808-like device running Windows Phone called Nokia EOS.
Now, as per a report on MyNokiaBlog, it seems Nokia is currently developing not one, but two models of EOS smartphone.
these smartphones have exactly the same specifications apart from the
processor. One of these smartphones comes with a dual-core processor
while the other deploys the Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor. Though
Nokia is reportedly working on both quad-core and dual-core version of
Nokia EOS, the blog mentions that the company is likely to announce only
one of these smartphones.
The reason being, the quad-core
version of Nokia EOS may be suffering from battery issues. Nokia EOS
will reportedly have a 2,000mAh battery, like the Nokia Lumia 920.
per MyNokiaBlog, the alleged specifications of this smartphone include
41-megapixel sensor, Xenon and LED flash. Nokia EOS will have an AMOLED
display with a resolution of 768x1280 pixels. The exact size of the
display is not yet known. As of now, it does not appear that Nokia EOS
will support 2K or 4K video recording, but the report says the Finnish
smartphone maker may think about adding the same in the near future.
blog also mentions that Nokia EOS might sport a variable aperture lens
much like the Nokia N86. It is expected to come with a more detailed
camera user interface like that on-board the Nokia 808 PureView. Nokia
EOS is likely to be launched first exclusively though telecom operator
AT&T and will be released globally 1 to 3 months after that.
The report also mentions that Nokia EOS was ready around the Mobile
World Congress (MWC) 2013. However, its launch had to be postponed due
to unknown reasons.
