Report: Nokia Lumia EOS coming to the U.S. in early July

According to a published report, the long-rumored Windows Phone version of the Nokia 808 PureView, the Nokia Lumia EOS, will be launched on or around July 9th and according to someone who claims to have had a chance to play around with the phone, the device will indeed feature a 41MP camera sensor; despite that figure, the maximum number available to use for a picture will be 34MP, the same as on the 808 PureView...

If Nokia is smart, they'll get a this phone on every carrier. Cut the exclusivity crap.

I get a funny feeling it might be. AT&T hasn't announced a new exclusive from nokia since the 920 last year. I believe other carriers are getting the 925, while vzw is getting the 928. I don't think Nokia will launch 2 high end devices such as these on the same carrier. So I could be wrong, but I think this will be all AT&T.

"...I think this will be all AT&T."
Yup-per. AT&T hasn't had a new release of a Nokia flagship phone since the L920. If there is an announcement in July, expect it to ship around October/November, just in time for the Holidays....

It would be smart to get this phone on every carrier, but I think Sprint will be getting this phone as an exclusive since Sprint is the only major carrier in the US who doesn't have a Nokia Windows Phone. Samsung and HTC will possibly have a Windows Phone coming to Sprint in late June early July. If this phone is supposed to be released in July, I believe it will be released to Sprint or every carrier. That would be the smart move for Nokia and Microsoft.

I'd assume it will have a snapdragon 600 in there if it's going to support all of those mega pixels (IIRC, the s4 pro can't support that many, while the 600 can).

The 808 doesn't use anything special (1.3GHz single-core), so this doesn't need anything overly powerful.

Actuallly it has two dedicated scaling chips.

I can't wait! Unlocked for sure. I have a feeling it's going to be ATT :(

Finally a smartphone device than can actually serve as a credible point and shoot camera! There is absolutely no question that every serious photographer will desire to have this device, and if the Windows Phone Blue patch lives up to expectations, then it's entirely possible this unit will have a 1080P screen and possibly even an HDMI out port too. This device totally has the potential to be an S4 and iPhone 5/6 killer in the making...

Yeah nokia is the best when it comes to camera and build quality
still I dont think it will be iPhone or galaxy s4 killer but it definitely be a come back for nokia.

Bring it on, Nokia!
But the problem is, when Nokia will release the EOS in my country? U.S. = early July, so that means I have to wait until August? :/
But nevertheless, wish all the best to you Nokia!

13. mafiaprinc3 (Posts: 474; Member since: 07 May 2012)
with respect to the s4 and iphone , the lumia 920 does make them look kinda blind,so does the 925
12. krimHD (Posts: 106; Member since: 23 May 2012)
Instagram shouldn't waste time..just bring it to windows phone and let people smoke their picture qualities all over instagram up NOKIA!!!

“The camera will also be able to record 1080P video in 3 different frame rates.”
Will WP8 be able to finally zoom in and out while recording in video?

I just don't get the hype of the 41mp where the screen still same old 720p resolution... Smh...
16. xperiaDROID (banned) (Posts: 5629; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
The 41MP camera on the Lumia EOS beats your 13MP Galaxy S4!
This is guaranteed!
If you don't like Nokia then don't click on this article, STFU and GTFO!
18. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
Wendy, you obviously don't understand much related to either photography or graphics. A 41MP sensor produces high resolution images, regardless of the output viewing screen. I can save those images, and then later open them in photoshop on my computer at their full resolution. They can be cropped down or printed at a larger size than images saved on a device with less resolution, such as the new Galaxy S4 (13MP).
I really can't stand ignorant people making stupid comments...
21. wendygarett (unregistered)
You know 41mp produce high resolution right? Then whats the point when you look at the non-1080p screen?
22. mousesports (Posts: 272; Member since: 28 Feb 2013)
shut the fk up ... leave your comment to samsugi article. We dont care about your ideas !!!
24. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
Wendy, how shall I educate you about this matter? It's the image files themselves that count, not the viewing screen on the device taking the pictures. A Nikon D800 will take 36MP images, but the LCD is only 3.2 ' and has a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. Who cares? The files are exported, and can then be viewed at much larger sizes on other hardware.
Hence, you are basically comparing apples & oranges - and thus your argument makes no sense at all.
27. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5993; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
Perhaps you are wasting your time with Wendy? When one's entire frame of reference is the screen on their smartphone, the concept of higher resolutions on non-smartphones is just.... Unfathomable?
29. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
wendygarett is almost certainly a paid shill, and is working for Samsung most likely. However, I wanted to make sure their negative criticism was not taken seriously by other less informed visitors that might be reading comments posted on this website...
Never a word wasted ;o)

Awesome. Just bought the Lumia 928 and this is what I was afraid of. Now locked in for two years with Verizon, so thanks again for your exclusivity crap Nokia (because we all know this is going to be AT&T exclusive for at least 6 months -- I dare you to prove me wrong Nokia).
19. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
I don't think you need regret your purchase. I still have my Lumia 920, but I'm not freaking out just because the EOS is coming out later this summer. The new machine will take better pictures of course, but you can't always be ahead of the technology curve, and the quality of a particular photograph still ultimately relates to the creative intelligence of the person behind the camera, and not the device itself...
I don't think it will be an exclusive to AT&T at this point. At least I hope not - those days are done me thinks :o`
26. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5993; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
Why don't you think the L-EOS will be an AT&T exclusive? The L920 is exclusive to AT&T. The L928 is exclusive to VZW. The L925 is exclusive to T-Mo. Why would Nokia switch what up to now is a well-worn roll-out model?
My bet is for the L-EOS to be announced for AT&T. Nokia is nothing if not set in their ways. AT&T is next up.
30. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
Nokia almost went broke, and the other carriers refused to take a chance on Windows Phone, which is why they choose AT&T as their starting point. However, WP8 has picked up a bit of steam, and so Nokia may have other options now. I guess we'll find out in a few months...
31. Penny (Posts: 1625; Member since: 04 Feb 2011)
I don't regret my purchase because the L928 is a bad product -- it's not, at all. The 928 still has a fantastic camera and, as you said, can come up with great quality photographs as long as I do a good job finding the right scene. My frustration stems more from the fact that I waited for quite some time with an available upgrade for a high end Nokia to finally hit Verizon, and it came fairly late (mid May). Because it came so late, I just hoped that Nokia's true next gen devices (EOS) weren't right around the corner; I would have been willing to wait a couple of months for the EOS. It seems that may very well be the case if the EOS does launch in July as rumored.
There are a few reasons I expect the EOS to be exclusive to AT&T. First, Verizon and T-Mobile just got new exclusive flagships. Second, AT&T has supported WP the most since its inception, and also received the L920 6 months before Verizon could get its own version, so we know that Nokia is willing to do AT&T some favors for their support. Third, Nokia itself has stated it likes the exclusivity strategy in the U.S., so I don't see them straying from this strategy now (I think they will when they feel that WP8 has enough popularity to sell in high volume across all carriers, because then they will be able to get out from under carriers' thumbs).
25. DerryAhmad (Posts: 262; Member since: 05 May 2012)
My next phone for sure!
Wonder whether the EOS will also incorporate the Pureview Phase 2 with OIS or just use the one in 808?

Now I have to say ... I was waiting for that phone-camera ! If Nokia gets Android I would love it ! But ... I will change my Samsung if the price is good. WP is growing !
