Nokia to keep PureView Phase 1 and 2 separate this year, prepping aluminum-clad EOS and Catwalk for a slimmer fit

0. phoneArena 23 Jan 2013, 04:35 posted on

Nokia is reportedly prepping a handset, codenamed EOS, which will use big sensor, similar to the 808 PureView and pixel-binning for creating stunning images out of a Windows Phone device. The new phone will feature aluminum design with square edges, and be one of the first in a polycarbonate design shift Nokia will undergo this year...

808 tech + Android 4.2 = win. Too bad it won't happen.

Then you would have less options, you know. Let NOKIA make Windows while others fight it out for little green robot.

Adults don't talk like they can get everything without thinking of the consequences and the obvious result. Nokia made their choice...it's WP, deal with it.
Who's the kid? You are...

Anyone using words such as "fandroids" is a child at heart. Grow up. 808 tech in Androids would be great, and it's hardly an opinion that should trigger an overly emotional response from a mentally stable individual.

Why don't you go ahead buy an 808 and flash it with a custom Android Alpha ROM? You'll atleast get what you want...an 808 with Android in it.

but android cant support that sensor yet, so the old horse symbian still has advantages over android. now nokia will bring there specialties to wp8

besides you all rave about samsung so why do you need more? the way you act you would think android and samsung are perfect in every way

Android can't support the sensor yet? Where did you get your BS, seriously? Android supports cars, fridges, mirrorless cameras and even SATELLITES!
Learn your lessons before posting BS, buddy.

Oh cm'on! Still spiting BS, buddy but no proof provided? Remind your BS about "symbian multitasks on the same level as Android".. LMAO!
Really? Based on what? You know deep inside you that Android is much more capable but the biased fanboy inside you, won't just admit it.
Android can actually support better cameras with bigger mirrorless sensors and interchangeable lenses, so your argument is invalid.
Next time think, before posting baseless BS!

Why not have a sensor that has both huge resolution and stuff like stablization and make the best camera phone ever! And i wish the next nokia flagship has a better battery, i mean battery is the most under-rated component on a phone yet the most important. (at least to me)

with currect tech the weight will pass beyond 200gm and back will also get a big hump again in time this will integrate for sure

I imagine they might do both. The EOS name is very telling, as that is the name Canon uses for its SLR camera lens system. Could we see a Nokia phone with interchangeable lenses?

Personally not a huge fan of the metal.body. Cold to the touch, slippery, scratches and dents, and wears poorly. Polycarbonate though can feel.warm or somewhat inviting to touch, us hard to scratch (and shows the same color throughout when it does), and holds up well. The lighter weight is appreciated, but not necessary. Odd that Nokia is rumored to go to metal when apple is rumored to be going polycarbonate.

Only possible if those guys use a graphene based sensor otherwise it's gonna be a brick.

it is really annoying that in every article mentioning Nokia, people start ranting about how should Nokia go with Android...Nokia made their choices, and those are based on strategies and forecasts...well, unless you are RIM's ex CEOs

nothing is the best forever, besides if they can put the 808's sensor in a lumia body you get a growing app store where as with symbian its dead.

I love the way Nokia is responding to critics..!!

-> Lumia 800 had a smaller display and no front-facing camera. Lumia 900 solved this.
-> With Lumia 900's launch, everyone so badly missed the curved glass that the 800 came out with. Nokia answered this immediately by launching its next iteration (the Lumia 920) with a curved glass.
-> And with Lumia 920, people were very much disappointed when they came to know that it was gonna sport only an 8.7 MP sensor and not a 21 MP sensor, which was anticipated (from some rumours, of course). Also they felt that the phone was a tad bit on the heavier side.
And here's Nokia again saying that the next phone will pack a bigger sensor and a lighter chassis..

I guess you people are making a move on now. Keep up the good work Nokia!!!
