Nokia said to be debating whether the Lumia EOS will be a dual or quad-core model

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.

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!

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: 215; 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

FYKI, Snapdragon 800 can support up to maximum of 55mpx..........

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.

my dual core phone doesn't lag

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.

me too dude...but i'm waiting for catwalk

2000 mAh battery? I dont think thats gonna be enough
29. akki20892 (Posts: 3901; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
who know it's a rumor, eos will come up with bigger battery
32. AeroPrime (Posts: 175; Member since: 21 Feb 2011)
It will have a bigger capacity battery.... 2000mAh it is not enough.
11. pookiewood (Posts: 631; 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: 175; Member since: 21 Feb 2011)
Yup I agree.... that's what make it different from other Mobile OS. I called it OS efficiency.
