Rumor: Nokia's 41-megapixel Windows Phone being tested on AT&T under 'Elvis' codename

For months, rumors have been flying on the Internet that Nokia is going to launch a new smartphone in its Lumia series, code-named "EOS," that would combine a 41-megapixel PureView camera with the Windows Phone 8 operating system. Today, a new story claims that phone is already being tested on AT&T's network in the U.S.

The story comes from WPCentral, which cites unnamed sources, and also claims that AT&T's internal code name for the phone is "Elvis," though no reason was given for the name. The story also has some unconfirmed hardware specs for the smartphone, including word that its case will be based on the Nokia Lumia 920 but 1 mm thinner except for the big camera hump.

The camera will take two pictures at the same time; one will be 35 megapixels and the other will be just five megapixels, according to the article. It is also supposed to have what the story calls Nokia Pro Camera, an advanced PureView mode that the article says will give the phone's owner more control over the camera's features. The phone, which is said to come in a yellow color, is also rumored to have a 768x1280 display, 32 GB of internal storage but no SD card slot, and an FM radio.

Rumors peg the smartphone's release for sometime this summer, possibly as early as July.
