Nokia said to be debating whether the Lumia EOS will be a dual or quad-core model
0. phoneArena 15 Apr 2013, 16:43 posted on
According to reports, Nokia is debating internally about whether or not the EOS phone, a Lumia handset with a camera sensor similar to the Nokia 808 PureView, will feature a dual-core or a quad-core processor; if the Finnish handset manufacturer goes ahead with the latter, it will be Nokia's first quad-core phone...

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

WP8 Supports up to 64 cores actually.
14. yowanvista (Posts: 318; Member since: 20 Sep 2011)
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.

it isn't android with maximum of 8 core support :D

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.

I have one Lumia 920 but this Lumia EOS is already my dream of smartphone!

yep dude....eos will be damn good phone, but do u know wait for catwalk next nokia flagship device.

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.
15. user996 (Posts: 193; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
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
44. rav405 (unregistered)
FYKI, Snapdragon 800 can support up to maximum of 55mpx..........
46. user996 (Posts: 193; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
no smart devices use snapdragon yet so that doesn't count
60. jacobspeeds (Posts: 34; Member since: 26 Feb 2012)
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!
20. iushnt (Posts: 762; Member since: 06 Feb 2013)
It lags no more.. I find it equal to other os..
39. taikucing (unregistered)
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.
24. joey_sfb (Posts: 3247; Member since: 29 Mar 2012)
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.
37. taikucing (unregistered)
my dual core phone doesn't lag
4. Credo (Posts: 695; Member since: 19 Apr 2012)
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 .....
6. shikroi (Posts: 187; Member since: 24 Sep 2012)
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.
28. akki20892 (Posts: 3655; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
me too dude...but i'm waiting for catwalk

2000 mAh battery? I dont think thats gonna be enough
29. akki20892 (Posts: 3655; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
who know it's a rumor, eos will come up with bigger battery
32. AeroPrime (Posts: 173; Member since: 21 Feb 2011)
It will have a bigger capacity battery.... 2000mAh it is not enough.
11. pookiewood (Posts: 626; Member since: 05 Mar 2012)
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.
33. AeroPrime (Posts: 173; Member since: 21 Feb 2011)
Yup I agree.... that's what make it different from other Mobile OS. I called it OS efficiency.
13. GeekMovement (Posts: 1521; Member since: 09 Sep 2011)
It's always the battery that ruins an awesome phone.
16. wendygarett (unregistered)
I will continue refuse to get one even it's octa, simply because it's Windows phone, and Nokia always make a heavy phone with same old design, so no thanks...
21. microsoftnokiawin (Posts: 1043; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)
omg wendy you're an apple fan talk about old designs nokia is going aluminum this year they change there designs constantly and have wide range of colours not just black and white and omg its 30g heavier what are we gonna do ???
25. wendygarett (unregistered)
Aluminium is gimmick, that's why Apple stock tumbles... And that even weight more for Nokia...
prepared to meet the gravity, and your metal device bound to be dent as well
61. Dastrix (Posts: 620; Member since: 23 Nov 2012)
Sorry to break your bubble, but I'm pretty sure that stocks involve much more than just the use of aluminium in phones.
64. microsoftnokiawin (Posts: 1043; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)
if aluminium is a gimmick (which it's not) then what's a 6th row count as innovation ?
30. akki20892 (Posts: 3655; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
i guess your samdung doing over and over same design. Isn't dude. Y u care about nokia, see your samdung.
47. eanpreou (Posts: 19; Member since: 14 Feb 2013)
As if samsung makes different designs for their smartphones. Have you seen galaxy S IV, mega 6.3, mega 5.8, mini S IV, and galaxy win?
So wendy what Taiwanese university are you from?
59. akki20892 (Posts: 3655; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
there is so many samdung phones out there that looks same like s3.
check on gsmarena.com
52. Shubham412302 (Posts: 306; Member since: 09 Nov 2011)
well Lilia 928 is reported to be 8.4mm thick and 134 gm weight.
that's not bulky
17. papss (unregistered)
Wendy you aren't buying anyways so stop trolling.
anyways.. This sounds great but not with that battery BUT its just rumors so I'm not going to give it much thought.
18. lubba (Posts: 1311; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
@Wendygarett... Wendy, its just more for me. Thanks for not having interest but you didn't need to tell us. Sadly though you choice is based on assumption. You mentioned heavy phone. Haven't you been eating your daily news? A l u m i n u m is coming. Same ol design? Think of galaxy 1,2,3,4. How about Sony xperias. Check out LG. All the same design across the board. Look at Motorola. Damb their phones are ugly!
31. akki20892 (Posts: 3655; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
wendygarett think samdung making different design. But actully samdung making different sizes Lol
38. XperiaPrince (Posts: 108; Member since: 25 Dec 2012)
EXCEPT FOR XPERIA PHONES!
They have different designs only the NXT series looks alike!
Sony makes some of the most gorgeous devices.
19. gigaraga (Posts: 1381; Member since: 29 Mar 2013)
I dont think that it'll matter, because Windows Phone (and Nokia) probably cannot win the battle again.
22. PhoenixWright (Posts: 99; Member since: 11 Feb 2013)
Get the Quad, It'll sell to more people who don't know much about WP and Processors :D
HEY, get a littler bigger battery too...A great phone should last a good 6-8 hours with heavy usage...
C'mon don't give us a phone that will die when were film'n someth'n good.
AND FOR EVERYONE'S SAKE PLEASE DON'T GO AMOLED, The whites are horrible (Well not that horrible but if you do compare elsewhere it is horrible). Go OLED like your original plan.
Ohh and get Corning's G.Glass 3. + IR Blaster too, and Throw in the Removable SD card and the kitchen sink.
26. lubba (Posts: 1311; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
@gigaraga... Its not about winning, its about getting mind share. Its about showing the world that there is a cure for fanboyism. Show that there is a new bold alternative to the mainstream and that you don't have to be a mindless robot or rotten apple. To show a new way of doing things with your phone faster and easier. To show that there is no need to manipulate your phone to make it do what you want it to do because everything you need is right out of the box. Isn't that great?
51. yann (Posts: 42; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
Absolutely agree with you!
All this counting of apps is pure fanboyism.
Why I need 100k number of useless apps, when i've all right out of the box?
Currently I'm using SG Note II with installed 69 apps only. And regarding camera i still miss my NOKIA N8 - great fast camera. Samsung and Apple can't get even close to NOKIA according to the camera... and without dedicated camera key is uncomfortable for me.
/IMHO - for me the camera is very important.../
53. LumiaLover (Posts: 160; Member since: 27 Sep 2012)
Great comment lubba. I was an Android user and fan but as it stands I would not go back. My Lumia 920, WP8 and me are a marriage made in heaven...but don't tell my wife!!
35. shadez10 (Posts: 407; Member since: 15 Jan 2012)
is windows phone capable of using that huge sensor?.. i hope it can handle it will like how the symbian OS does to 808...
40. xperiaDROID (banned) (Posts: 5629; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
Finally! A quad core Windows Phone! Nokia, I love you! :)
42. jedpatrickdatu (Posts: 157; Member since: 24 Jan 2013)
While dual core will be more than enough, it would probably help in marketing if they use quad core. They should go for a quad core CPU but with a low clock speed per core of around 1GHZ to balance things out and save battery life.
62. Antonyjoseph (Posts: 215; Member since: 06 Apr 2013)
My thoughts exactly. Most people dont understand that Windows is not as resource hungry as Android, but will only look at the specs and think that Samsung has Octa core and Nokia is still on dual core. So even if there is no technical requirement for Quad core, it is a marketing need.
43. EspHack (Posts: 70; Member since: 04 Sep 2012)
wish there is 4k recording... wow, but having both OIS and that huge sensor would make it a real brick like 20mm lol
48. user996 (Posts: 193; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
who cares if you have those tech on a smartphone no need to use any digital camera with HDR or so
45. Antonyjoseph (Posts: 215; Member since: 06 Apr 2013)
Nokia and Microsoft needs to push the accelerator and move faster with new models. Nokia needs to Bombard the market with Window phones in all segments. Thats the only way to catch the attention of large number of users who just tend to follow whatever others are doing.
54. LumiaLover (Posts: 160; Member since: 27 Sep 2012)
I agree AJ but I suppose you could also argue that taking your time and launching with truly unique innovations that make a real difference to your smartphone experience is just as important. The Lumia 920 had so many innovative, useful features at launch, and this only came about because of careful considered product development.

Another unbeatable device \m/
50. yann (Posts: 42; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
If NOKIA make this device with good camera(808), FM transmitter, NOKIA maps&navgation, MS Office full support and SD card slot - THAT'S MY NEXT PHONE!
