41-megapixel PureView Nokia EOS tipped for summer launch

41-megapixel PureView Nokia EOS tipped for summer launchRemember the full PureView Nokia EOS that popped up on our rumour radar a couple of weeks back?

Well it's just turned up again, with the Guardian reporting today that the 41-megapixel Windows Phone is very much real, and should hit the big time over the summer.

In terms of actual substance there's very little new information. The piece refers only to “sources close to the Finnish handset maker” in telling us where the info is coming from.

And aside from the reference to a summer launch (the story mentions the US, but there's no reason why Europe would be left behind), there's really nothing we don't already know.

The Nokia EOS will be the first “true” PureView Windows Phone. The current Lumia 920 flagship carries the PureView tag, but doesn't deliver the same 41-megapixel over-sampling mega-sensor we saw inside the Nokia 808 PureView at Mobile World Congress a year ago.

Going by the leak a fortnight ago, we can also expect the EOS to have a smart aluminium body and stronger, more angular lines – reportedly part of a Lumia-wide design shift.

A summer launch sounds about right (as opposed to the rather unlikely scenario of the EOS showing up at Mobile World Congress at the end of the month), but while that's still a good few months away, you can be sure the Nokia EOS will pop its snap-happy head above the mobile parapet a few more times before then.

And hopefully we'll get some more meaty details than we've been given so far.

"summer"? With Nokia that means slightly delayed, not making the Christmas rush, sometime in January....

Bit of a jump from 8.7 pseudo 'Pureview' to 41 mpx with nothing in between, even if the actual pixels used is much less than the number advertised.
