Nokia’s next camera superphone is coming: here's what to expect
Update: The Nokia Lumia 1020 aka the Nokia EOS has already gone official. Take a look at our full Lumia 1020 coverage here.

In just a few days, on July 11th, Nokia will hold an event in New York and everyone expects to finally see the Nokia EOS, a truly revolutionary cameraphone packing the true PureView 41-megapixel camera and running on Windows Phone 8.

The name of the actual handset is not yet known. It initially leaked out under the Nokia EOS moniker, but the latest report speculate it could end up being called Nokia Lumia 1020 or even Nokia Lumia 909, following in the footsteps of the 808 PureView.

What seems certain though is that early on Thursday morning, Nokia’s keynote will show the future for smartphone cameras and the device it unveils could be a big push for the Windows Phone platform to finally start getting traction.

So what’s the fuss all about? The Nokia EOS aka Lumia 1020 aka Lumia 909 has leaked out countless times and here is how those whispers picture it:

  • a 4.5 inch AMOLED HD+ PureMotion screen
  • a 768 x 1280 resolution, pixel density of 332ppi
  • Adreno 320 graphics
  • 41-megapixel camera with Xenon flash and single LED
  • stereo audio recording
  • 2000mAh battery
  • polycarbonate body coming in at least four colors: black, yellow, red and white

The camera technology is its key feature, of course. The 41-megapixel camera has the same huge sensor we saw on the Symbian-based Nokia 808 PureView, but this time Nokia seems to have managed to shrink it down in a reasonably thin body. The big sensor should make it possible to shoot noise-free images in low light and it’d support up to 6 times of lossless zoom.

In addition to great hardware, Nokia and Microsoft might have finally found a way to bring awesome camera apps like Instagram to Windows Phone. Many people are using Instagram not just for its great vintage filters but for the community, and that’s something Windows Phone is missing right now. Nokia’s new Pro Cam app will allegedly be the default camera application on the new smartphone.

What about its launch? Good news is that Nokia is allegedly ready to pull its act together and the release date for the Nokia EOS should be soon after its official unveiling, possibly in August.

We’ll be covering the event live as it happens, and you can also watch Nokia’s livestream at Nokia Conversations. The event kicks off on Thursday, July 11th, 11:00am ET | 8:00am PT.

I'm highly anticipating Nokia's future generation camera technology. Hopefully this phone would help the company regain its reputation it once had

Nokia is leading the camera industry since the N-series.

Every tech site has praised their cameras.
They will be king again soon.. WP8 is growing.

I think only a better camera option can't help of Nokia to regain its reputation because there is BLINK FEED, ZOI, SENSE 5 BY HTC. BRAVIA ENGINE 2 TRILUMINOS DISPLAY BY SONY , TOUCH VIZ AND HIGHLY INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY BY SAMSUNG so Nokia has to do somthing more innovative

then add 3 months for new phones preinstalled w/ gdr3 and updates for gdr3. then add 5 months until those phones are available worldwide.

then add 2 months until the lumia line / windows phone os is now selling very well and known by most people.

1 yr, 3months

This is how you do Phamera. See Samsung? It's not that hard to make a slim Phamera right?
Good job Nokia!

Lol, where were you in 2008-2009? Samsung know exactly how to make a great camera phone with phones like the Pixon12, Innov8, G800 etc... Heck even the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note Androids have had the best Cameras of each year in Android.

Yeah, all those Samsung cameras weren't that great: MyNokiaBlog did a comparison late last week about them. Granted, it's from a pro-Nokia site, but the info isn't any less valid.

Why is my nokia blog dot com (all one word, and . for dot) a banned word?!

Nokia also buy sensor from Sony. A camera is not just about its sensor and lense, it's also down to the image processing that happens before and after the pic is taken, that depends HEAVILY on Samsung doing a great job with their SW which they have, same with Nokia.

I don't think so...even if Nokia knows what to do with it, sony doesn't (apple and samsung bought them to and the final execution was much better than sony's)

Well, sort of. Sony licence from the same company - Carl Zeiss. Nokia also licence from them. Sony make the Zeiss ZA lenses but there are many other lenses out there. The lenses made for Nokia are custom made by Zeiss in collaboration with Nokia.

Replace wp8 with "android" and lumia 720 with "a nexus", and 520 with "gs4". Now read it.
