Nokia’s new 41MP PureView WP8 handset (EOS / Lumia 1000) might have a Snapdragon 800 processor
The 41MP Nokia EOS has been in the rumors for quite a while now, but we still don’t have solid information on its launch – as we have on the Lumia 928 (which is supposed to be announced by Verizon this month), or on the Nokia Catwalk (expected to be unveiled on May 15 in London).
Luckily, My Nokia Blog brings new details on the EOS, saying this will be an AT&T exclusive first, and only after 1 to 3 months it’s going to be available globally. Reportedly, Nokia is testing the EOS in two versions: a dual-core, and a quad-core one, the latter featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The quad-core version currently suffers from poor battery life, which could mean Nokia will end up launching the dual-core model (unless it finds a way around this problem soon).
Other expected features: AMOLED display with 1280 x 768 pixels, LTE connectivity, FM Transmitter, and a 2,000 mAh battery. Plus, of course, a 41MP PureView camera similar to the one included in the Nokia 808 (pictured below).
The EOS will obviously run Windows Phone 8. It’s speculated that the final name of the handset might be Lumia 1000 – which kind of makes sense, given the names of the other high-end Lumias (920, 928). Sure enough, nothing is official until Nokia says so.
