Nokia said to be debating whether the Lumia EOS will be a dual or quad-core model
The Nokia 808 Pureview camera will be similar to the one expected on the EOS

The Nokia 808 Pureview camera will be similar to the one expected on the EOS

According to a report, Finnish handset manufacturer Nokia is debating internally on whether or not to place a dual-core or quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor inside the Nokia Lumia EOS model. Battery performance will go a long way toward deciding which processor to use. You might recall that this is the oft-mentioned Lumia model that will feature a 41MP camera sensor similar to the one on the Nokia 808 PureView phone. If Nokia does go ahead and make the EOS a quad-core device, it will be the first such model offered by the manufacturer. The Windows Phone GRD3 update could allow Windows Phone models to support quad-core processors.

Besides the possibility of being the first quad-core Nokia device, some other possible specs for the Nokia Lumia EOS have been revealed including an AMOLED display, double tap to wake feature, an FM transmitter and a "sleeping screen". A 2000mAh battery is expected. Other specs have to do with the PureView camera including the 41MP camera, OIS floating lens and a Xenon flash.

The Nokia Lumia EOS is expected to be an exclusive for AT&T. There is no word on when we might see the phone although there is some talk that it will be ready before the 2013 holiday season.

Not a WP fan but that shouldn't be even debatable.

WP8 Supports up to 64 cores actually.

And the Linux Kernel supports up to 512 cores (4096 on 64-bit). Sure there is no single current smartphone ARM SoC having more than 4-cores but the support is already here & Android can natively benefit from it later on.

Is it really even necessary other than for fanboys to simply say my d**k is bigger than yours? WP8 runs like a dream on dual.

if a dual core functions as wel as a quadcore, why make it a quad-core?.. F' Android.. their phones still lags. regardless of cores..

This is the 41mp sensor from the 808 we are talking here. That device needed a dedicating scaling chip to take photos. The oversampling and lossless zooming are going to need the processing power. Plus nokia might throw in 4k recording.

if Nokia will do 41mpx camera they must go for dedicated GPU as in 808. in this case there is no need for quad core CPU. anyway Snapdragons have support maximum for 20mpx only

no smart devices use snapdragon yet so that doesn't count

i dont think they'll implement 4k or even 2k....optical stablisation, variable aperture....all seem farfetched on a phone even as fat as an 808...i'll have the shock of my life if they do!

It lags no more.. I find it equal to other os..

agree, since jelly bean is released, I find no lags. Now my phone is fast & fluid since I upgrade it to jelly bean.
The other way is to use other app launcher that makes it smooth.

Which Android phone you ever own that lag. My guess would be zero for a average iOS fan that feel left behind just like apple. I used to like apple but i am not chain to apple. I choose which ever that is good value for my money.

I don't get it, Windows Phone is supposed to support up to 64 cores? Then why it need a update to support quad core? Correct me if i'm wrong .....

The kernel does, however wp8 does not have the driver support because ms wants to lower fragmentation. In the same way the kernel supports 1080p but wp8 doesn't have the drivers. Ms wants to control the manner in which their platform progresses I suppose.

WP doesn't need Quadcore really. It's always fast and never slows up. 4C would be nice but I don't think they should sweat it much. Get an awesome phone out with WP and 41MP and it will sell.

Yup I agree.... that's what make it different from other Mobile OS. I called it OS efficiency.
