Ever since the announcement and release of the Nokia 808 PureView handset with its 41 megapixel camera, rumors have been popping up about a 41-megapixel Lumia; however, that hasn't materialized as of yet.
Changes could be on the horizon, as new information about a device known as RM-877 popped up on the scene, according to AdDuplex. The device appears to be headed to AT&T, and has a 1280x768 resolution display, proving this new device is of the high-end variety. The handset is also rumored to be the evasive 41-megapixel Lumia, but without any information, this rumor is difficult to pin down as legitimate.
For all we know, it could merely be the Lumia 877, a more affordable version of the Lumia 920.
The Nokia device with its rumored 41-megapixel sensor, is dubbed the Nokia EOS, and has been in the news since 2012. Not much is known about the handset apart from rumors claiming it is a high-end Windows Phone 8 device with a possible quad core processor and Nokia's iconic 41 megapixel PureView sensor.
Flavio, a Web marketing guru, tweeted about the EOS recently, along with leaking the specifications of the Lumia 928 destined for Verizon Wireless. There have also been reports of the EOS having some form of waterproof mechanism going on, and an aluminum shell; however, this has not been confirmed.
Adding more fire to this rumored device, Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin spoke of having hands-on time with a Lumia device at MWC 2013, which he believes to be the Nokia EOS. Still. One must take into consideration that Murtazin is known for spreading nonsense, and only now and again he'll actually get something right on the money.
If the EOS is indeed out there, Nokia would fare better if it announces the device in light of the coming Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One handsets based on Android.
