Nokia to launch first 'true' PureView Windows Phone 8 device later this year
According to reports, Nokia is planning to launch a smartphone later this year that will incorporate the 41MP camera from the Nokia 808 PureView and run on Windows Phone 8. There is no actual launch date for the device but it is expected to launch later this year.
As of now, the device is codenamed EOS. It is expected to have the same 41-megapixel PureView camera, the same one found on the Nokia 808. No other specifications of the device are known, but the smartphone may be built out of aluminum making it a sturdy device.
The device is also expected to be the next flagship smartphone in Nokia’s Lumia lineup. The Nokia 808 PureView wasn’t the best smartphone when it launched but it sure as hell had the best camera to be housed in a smartphone till date. This made the phone a little bulkier than we’d like but it is an acceptable tradeoff when you take a look at the quality of the images you get from the camera.

Nokia recently launched the Lumia 920 in India. The device runs on Windows Phone 8 and incorporates a part of the PureView technology. Despite the controversies surrounding the camera of the Lumia 920, it is safe to say that not only is it a fantastic smartphone, but it also houses one of the best cameras available giving the likes of the iPhone 5 a run for their money.

The device is expected to go on sale later this year in the US with AT&T as the carrier tie-up.
