Nokia Lumia ‘EOS’ may feature slimmed down PureView
Nokia’s next flagship phone will feature a slimmer version of its PureView camera technology, according to a new leak – but it isn’t yet clear if it features the full 41-megapixel sensor.
Details leaked to WMPoweruser suggest Nokia has managed to slim down PureView’s bulky sensor enough to pack it into the rumoured Lumia ‘EOS’.
However, that might indicate a lower-resolution sensor rather than the 41-megapixel version, which is currently only available on the Nokia 808 PureView.
A prototype device didn’t note the camera’s megapixel count, but the flash, lens and lens housing are all smaller than on the bulky 808 PureView. The phone is also reportedly tapered at both ends to disguise the lens housing, and features a red LED next to the flash, potentially a focus-assist light.
Like the Lumia 920, the phone is made of polycarbonate and will feature a 4.5in AMOLED touchscreen with a 1,280 x 768 resolution. Overall, the phone is expected to be much lighter than its predecessors.
Aside from the 808 PureView, the newly unveiled Lumia 925 features an 8.7-megapixel PureView sensor. Packing the full version into a Lumia would be a major step forward for Nokia, given criticisms over the 808 PureView’s chunkiness, weight and low resolution screen.
