Apparently, Nokia’s choice of the operating system is not enough to make it one of a kind mobile maker, so the company is looking for other strong points for its phones. As My Nokia Blog reports, the Finnish company is now focusing on bringing a whole new camera experience to at least one of its upcoming Windows Phone 8 smartphones. The rumored Nokia EOS is believed to launch with a huge 41-megapixel sensor.

The Carl Zeiss 41-megapixel sensor is the same which was used in the Nokia 808 PureView. This innovative technology allows for intense levels of image detail, lossless cropping and significantly improved quality in photos taken in low-light conditions. All these features together make up absolutely unique photographic experience never before achieved on a cell phone, apart from the 808 PureView. Except, the 808 PureView didn’t catch on exactly as Nokia hope it would, possibly because it runs Symbian. With this in mind, the Nokia EOS will launch with Windows 8 as a platform of choice.
The phone will be truly high-end device. Word on the street has it that the Nokia will launch the phone in two versions. One will be powered by a dual-core processor, the other will pack a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip. Let’s not forget about its 1,280 x 768 pixel AMOLED display, 4G LTE connectivity, FM Transmitter, and a generous 2,000 mAh battery. The camera is believed to offer optical image stabilization, a Xenon flash, and the potential for a variable aperture. My Nokia Blog also claims that the EOS will be released as AT&T exclusive first. Customers elsewhere will have to wait 1 to 3 months for the handset to be available.
