Rumor: Nokia's EOS Windows Phone due this summer

A few weeks ago, the rumors hit the Internet about Nokia's plans to bring its 41 megapixel PureView camera sensor to its Lumia line up of Windows Phones. At the time the rumors only had a general time frame of sometime in 2013 for its release.

Now a new report from The Guardian, using unnamed sources, claims that the time frame for the launch of this smartphone has been narrowed a bit to sometime this summer in the US. If true, that would mean that the smartphone would not made its first appearance for another four months at the earliest.

Nokia could officially announce the Lumia EOS later this month as part of its press conference at the World Mobile Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain. The EOS could be just one of many new Windows Phone devices that the company will reveal for the first time; the company did not make any announcements last month at CES 2013.

Last year, Nokia introduced the 808 PureView smartphone with a 41 megapixel sensor but running on the company's older, and in-house, Symbian OS. A few weeks ago, Nokia admitted that the 808 Pureview was in fact the last smartphone it would make with the Symbian operating system.
