Nokia plans to unveil another Windows Phone, codenamed EOS this year, according to sources familiar with company plans. The Verge has learned that the device is set to include a similar sensor to which is found on the Nokia 808 PureView. The optics upgrade would further advance Nokia's imaging technology, as well as provide yet another high-end Lumia Windows Phone for consumers.
As well as the bump in specifications for the camera, EOS will also sport an aluminium body, rather than the polycarbonate owners have come to love since the Lumia 800. It's also believed AT&T will be stocking the device later this year. The aluminium body is also to be sported by the Lumia 920 successor, codenamed Catwalk. It's a hint at where Nokia will be taking the Lumia line of Windows Phones with regards to look and feel.
Nokia has previously teased at "more to come" with its imaging capabilities in Windows Phone. Juha Alakarhu, head of imaging technologies of Nokia, had the following to say on the future of PureView in the blog post:
"I think it’s important to underscore that PureView doesn’t mean any specific technology. It’s the latest and greatest in imaging. When you buy a Nokia phone with PureView, you are getting our highest quality imaging innovation. Nokia 808 PureView solved the problem of zooming and sharpness, and for Nokia Lumia 920, it was low light."
While it's yet to be known exactly how the company plans to show off its advances in camera technology, EOS certainly appears to be a viable candidate. The Lumia 920 isn't a slouch by any means and the camera has been in the spotlight more so than the platform the device runs on, but a high-end Windows Phone with a similar shooter to the 808 PureView is a desire many have shared.
