The handset maker is bringing its 41 megapixel PureView camera to a future Windows Phone model, the Verge reports this morning. The device is code-named EOS, according to the site. A similar camera is offered in the Nokia 808 PureView, which runs on the Symbian platform.
Nokia has already made the cameras and photography a signature feature on its Windows Phones, including the Lumia 920, which takes noticeably better pictures than the competing HTC 8X Windows Phone. (See our previous post for more on the differences between the two phones.)
Nokia, led by former Microsoft executive Stephen Elop, has shifted its smartphone ecosystem from Symbian to Windows Phone, making a bet on Microsoft’s mobile platform. The Redmond company has struggled to gain traction against the iPhone and Android in the smartphone market.
