Nokia will reportedly launch its much-rumored Lumia "EOS" smartphone in July, boasting a whopping 41-megapixel camera and plenty of other neat specs and features.
The Finnish company already has a 41-megapixel camera smartphone, the Nokia 808 PureView, but Symbian is not a very popular operating system. The new EOS smartphone will run on Windows Phone.
A WMPowerUser recently revealed the kind of specifications the Nokia Lumia EOS smartphone would boast, and Nokia itself said that it will launch another device this summer, prompting many to assume it will be the EOS.
Now, MobileGeeks claims it received news from a tipster that the handset Nokia is preparing to unleash this summer will indeed be the Lumia EOS and the launch date will fall in the second week of July, most likely on July 9. While the WMPowerUser report didn't confirm the rumored 41-megapixel sensor on the handset, MobileGeeks' source apparently has more details.
"Juicy details which sort of with authority confirm the fact that the Lumia EOS (or whatever Nokia chooses to call it at release) WILL sport a 41 megapixel sensor," MobileGeeks reports. "Photographs however can only be taken at a maximum of 34 megapixels - just like the case was with the PureView 808."
The report further adds that users will be able to shoot lower-resolution photos as well and the smartphone will also shoot full HD videos. Users will reportedly have three options for the 1080p videos with different frame rates, and three separate 720p models.
The phone would also sport a completely redesigned camera interface, with circular on-screen dial controls for adjusting various camera settings. This redesigned interface will reportedly be called the Nokia ProCamera. Moreover, the handset will allegedly have DSLR-like sounds when flicking around the settings, while a manual mode will allow users to manually adjust all camera settings.
Other details regarding the Nokia Lumia EOS smartphone include a 4.5-inch, 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, a polycarbonate shell, a Xenon flash for low-light imaging and a sleek profile, thinner than the Lumia 920.
All things considered, it seems that the Nokia Lumia EOS smartphone is actually happening and will hit the market soon enough. If leaked specs prove to be accurate, this will be the world's best camera phone.
