After its newfound profitability, Nokia is moving forward with its line of pixel-packing PureView smartphones. The Verge has sources claiming that the new phones—codenamed EOS—will be made out of a sleeker aluminum and will have squared edges. In addition to the fresh look, the smartphones will have a high-megapixel sensor similar to the 41MP 808 PureView.
Nokia confirmed at this morning’s earnings announcement that the 808 PureView was its last phone to run the Symbian smartphone operating system. According to The Verge, the new “EOS” hardware will be Nokia’s first true Windows Phone 8 PureView device.
By shedding Symbian and adopting Window Phone 8 on PureView smartphones, Nokia has the potential to combine super high-megapixel hardware with excellent capture and editing software from the ever-evolving Windows Phone store.
