Nokia’s Lumia 925 will resurrect the “true PureView” question

The Finnish firm has made no bones over the past months that digital imagery is one of the key differentiators it sees as distinguishing it from the rest of the mobile market, both from other Windows Phone manufacturers and the smartphone segment at large, and its London launch is expected to be the most camera-centric of the year.

Nokia EOS Windows Phone tipped with “proper” PureView

Nokia is readying the first Windows Phone to be truly worthy of PureView branding, currently codenamed EOS, new whispers suggest, with the 2013 handset expected to drop on AT&T later in the year. The Nokia EOS - the project name of which may well be a nod to Canon's DSLR range - will pack a "similar sensor" to that of the 41-megapixel Nokia 808 PureView, according to The Verge's sources, as well as a new industrial design.
