Nokia’s Eos WP8 handset to be announced on July 11, will “reinvent zoom”
Samsung has caused quite a stir with its Galaxy S4 Zoom, calling it “the only device you’ll ever need.” The South Korean company hopes that this smartphone-meets-camera device, with its 10x optical zoom lens, will make you forget about other handsets, or other cameras. That, of course, will not happen. Even so, Nokia is ready to give the S4 Zoom a run for its money, as it’s getting ready to “reinvent zoom” during an event that will take place in New York City on July 11.
While the Finish company didn’t unveil more details about the event, it’s almost certain that we’ll see the rumored Nokia Eos announced there. Recently spotted in several images, the Eos should come with a 41MP PureView camera. Other expected features: Windows Phone 8, a 4.5 inch PureMotion HD+ display, LTE, 32GB of internal memory, and a dual-core processor.
Since “Eos” is just a codename, the new handset will have a different moniker when it finally becomes official.
Nokia already has a 41MP camera phone – the Symbian-based 808 (launched in the first half of 2012). The Eos will be better than that at taking photos, as Nokia has improved its PureView technology since the introduction of 808.
Before the Eos announcement, Nokia should launch its Lumia 925 in the US via T-Mobile. The 925 features a PureView camera, too, but this only comes with an 8MP sensor.
