Nokia EOS may launch as the Lumia 1020

0. phoneArena 25 Jun 2013, 11:56 posted on

We don't know a huge amount about Nokia's next big thing, the EOS. We know that it will more than likely be announced next month; we know that it will have a borderline unnecessary 41MP camera; and, we know that it will likely come in a range of colors, just like other Nokia devices. But, a new rumor may have a name for the device...

same sentiments here. If you write this kind of comment on the pixel count of Pureview tech, either you're just acting to know nothing (to favor other brands) or you are someone who lived under the rock who suddenly emerged and posted dumb comments. Why not write "obvious unnecessary telescope at the back of the phone" instead or better yet "obvious unnecessary fusion of a phone and a digicam". Hello S4 Zoom!

“unnecessary 41MP camera"?

Samsung doesn't have a 41mp camera yet on a smartphone, so they ordered PA to say so.

@Michael H, What about unnecessary 1080p screen or unnecessary 4 core CPU or unnecessary 5.0" screen size or unnecessary 2GB of ram ?

@Potato, you will be banned too

@Michael H is not so smart, he probably did not hear the term 'lossless zoom' and 'oversampling'!!!

Maybe what we should need is a cannonlike protuberance on its back. Okay... just kidding. Phonearena has a good coverage of WP and Nokia phones, I think it was just a wit attempt that surely backfired with some audiences, not an intentional attack on a yet to be realease phone.

Wit looks at reality and points out the irony. There is nothing ironic in the 41mp sensor - it makes sense and it works. Therefore the comment "borderline unnecessary" betrays either a lack of understanding of the principles involved or a lowest-common-denominator, lazy journalism.

It's not just a case of who doesn't want a better camera on their smartphone; after all, there will be a bump on the back of the 1020, just as there was on the 808 and N8. Personally, I am happy to live with that bump in order to get a better camera - others do not want that "compromise".

Really. May be because S4 zoom has only 16mp camera?

I know right! Borderline unnecessary wording by Michael H., to put it in his own words. Why would he even say that? I question the credibility of these writers. More like fanboys.

It's not a fair fight, 41MP vs 16MP .

More MP does not a better camera make. sensor size is more important.

Sony Honami sensor size will be bigger than 1/1.2" ?

I have no idea. I'm simply pointing out Mega Pixel count is not the ends all be all.

Yeah! And Nokia uses the Best Camera Sensors after all for their phones since N8 to Lumia 925.
Whereas I'm a fan of Nokia, Apple & Sony. Love Innovators not labels!!

If you are looking for a phone with lag, android it's best!

This is what you said about S4 zoom
"It's called giving consumers choice ...."

So what happened to giving consumers a choice ?

........Retarded

That would be the S"4" Zoom. The EOS is a Lumia 928 with an enormously great camera. So up front it will be a top-notch Windows Phone too.
