US-bound Nokia Lumia EOS with 41MP PureView sensor reconfirmed by The Guardian

US-bound Nokia Lumia EOS with 41MP PureView sensor reconfirmed by The Guardian
Not that there's been any doubt Nokia is working hard on bringing its PureView Phase 1 sensor, as found on the groundbreaking 808 PureView handset, to the Lumia range, but now the rumor gets reconfirmed by one more reputable source - The Guardian.

UK's leading publication cites sources close to the Finns, who once again said that the US will be getting the 41MP sensor from the 808 PureView in a Nokia Lumia device running Windows Phone, codenamed EOS.

We've heard a few times before that the handset is heading to AT&T, and possibly Verizon, but so far the speculation was that it will have a scaled down version of the PureView Phase 1 sensor, with twenty something megapixels to do the oversampling magic that yields such great results in the last Symbian phone. The EOS is expected to be thin and aluminum-clad, and we'd expect a sizable "hump" on the back for the huge sensor, which we can care less about if the results are what the 808 PureView delivers.

Asked for comment, Nokia gave the usual boilerplate reply that it is flattered by the attention given from the Guardian to the Lumia range, but it is company policy not to comment on rumors. The EOS phone is expected to launch in the US come summer, so we might be seeing it announced at the MWC expo, as Nokia already scheduled a press event for February 25 there.

If true this is great news. Nokia and WP8 needs something unique and groundbreaking to chisel off some iOS/Android fanboys.

They already do. This just adds to their cache of such devices they already offer.

Even though it is the Guardian saying this, I'm not so sure that it is any more real than any other rumor. Who is their source close to the Finns? Why would a US carrier pick up the Nokia Lumia EOS when every other major Nokia flagship has never been carried? AT&T and T-Mobile both passed on such illustrious Nokia flagship devices as the N95, the 5800 XpressMusic, the E75, the N900, the N8, the E7, the N9, the 808 Pureview, and so on... why would any of them now offer to subsidize the Lumia EOS? I can see an unlocked offering in the US, but even then I am not at all conviced that RM-860 is, in fact, the long-awaited Lumia EOS.
