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. 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. FHD videos can be taken in three different modes, the same with 720p videos.

The camera interface is updated with circular on-screen controls and a redesigned app called Nokia ProCamera will be available to work with the camera on the handset. A manual mode will allow the phone's user to adjust all of the settings. Other sources say that the Nokia Lumia EOS will feature a 4.5 inch AMOLED screen with a 720 x 1280 resolution. For now, Windows Phone 8 doesn't support a FHD screen.

Last week, we told you that the Nokia Lumia EOS will feature a polycarbonate shell and will actually be thinner than the Nokia Lumia 920 with a the camera protruding a tad. The device tapers toward the top and bottom of the handset to give it a sleeker look. Unlike the Nokia 808 PureView, this model is more of a mainstream device that will fit with Nokia's current line-up, unlike the Nokia 808 PureView which is seen as an oddity.

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.

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... Go 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!

“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...

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!

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?

shut the fk up ... leave your comment to samsugi article. We dont care about your ideas !!!

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.

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?

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)
