A report claims that a new Nokia Lumia handset sporting a 41-megapixel PureView camera will be arriving in the US by summer.
The rumour comes from The Guardian. The site reports, “Nokia is finally bringing its “revolutionary” 41-megapixel Pureview sensor to its Lumia range of Windows Phone handsets, according to sources close to the Finnish handset maker.
“The new model will be known as EOS, and will launch in the summer in the US.”
Are there any legs to this rumour? We’re pretty sure Nokia is trying to gain an edge over the competition, especially with a number of manufacturers offering Windows Phone 8-powered handset as well as the overwhelming popularity of Android and the iPhone. So offering a Lumia handset with a 41-megapixel sporting PureView technology may just do that.
The Lumia 920 is Nokia’s current flagship. It does sport PureView technology, but not the camera sensor prowess of the Pure View 808. The PureView 808 is currently the handset with the biggest megapixel count.
Nokia will be announcing its new devices in its press conference in Mobile World Congress, which kicks off in Barcelona towards the end of the month. If the Lumia EOS does exist, we’re likely to hear about it at trade show.
Nokia was asked to spill the beans about the rumoured device. All a Nokia spokesperson would say was, “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.”
