Per reports, the alleged Lumia 1000 could possibly be the rumored 41-megapixel Nokia Lumia EOS smartphone, which borrows the PureView camera technology from the Symbian-based Lumia 808, and the smartphone has now popped up on the China Mobile database.

"The Lumia 1000 has now allegedly been entered into an official China Mobile database, the world's largest carrier, and is leaving us wonder whether it will be an international version of the US-bound Lumia EOS, or something altogether different," reported Phone Arena.
