It's nearly a year now since Nokia's PureView imaging technology grabbed our attention courtesy of the 42MP Nokia 808 PureView (pictured) launched at last year's Mobile World Congress.
Despite the PureView-branded release of the Lumia 920, however, we're still waiting on true 808-style PureView to cross the divide from Symbian to Windows Phone. But it's coming, says The Verge, and it'll be called the Nokia EOS.
I've mentioned before that things have been looking a bit sparse on the Nokia Lumia front since the Lumia 920/820 Windows Phone 8 launch splurge towards the end of 2012. At a time when everyone else is flinging out handsets left, right and centre for CES and MWC, Nokia doesn't seem to have that much in the pipelines.
But it's slowly coming together. There's consistent chatter about a Nokia Windows RT tablet - possibly even to appear at MWC, plus the Nokia Catwalk, the supposed aluminium-bodied successor to the Lumia 920 that's being lined up for later in the year.
And now the EOS. We have to take The Verge's word for it when it says “true PureView Windows Phone”, as it doesn't have any specifics, other than to say it'll feature a “similar sensor” to the 808, by which we assume similar oversampling trickery and similar dimensions.
We are given a few details on the appearance of the EOS (just a codename, we're told). It'll reportedly have an aluminium body like the Catwalk, and will have squared edges as part of a fresh design cycle for Nokia.
Update: Italian WP site WindowsPhonino has quoted regular mobile rumour-surfacer Flavio Pic as saying the EOS will indeed be a 41MP PureView device, and will be in attendance along with a good few of the other aluminium-bodied Lumias and the Nokia tablet at MWC. He's repeated the claim in English via Twitter.
