Nokia gives us 41 million reasons to look forward to July 11

Nokia 41 MillionNokia has already announced it’s holding a special event on July 11 in New York, where if the rumours come true, we could see the launch of the Nokia EOS, the device which finally brings the full PureView camera experience to Windows Phone. While the EOS has been rumoured for a while, it was never guaranteed to be the star of Nokia’s show, or that it would have a 41 megapixel sensor.

However, a post published on Nokia’s official Conversations blog has given us a very strong hint that the phone introduced next month will be everything we’ve been hoping for. The post talks about a live stream of the event, but is accompanied by a banner saying, “41 Million Reasons” to tune in on the day.

Of course, it could be a coincidence that Nokia has decided to use that particular number, or more likely, it’s making a reference to the 41 megapixel camera seen on the 808 PureView phone last year. It now seems almost certain that camera is going to be attached to a Lumia Windows Phone device.

Nokia has released several new phones over the past few months, each with subtle differences between them, and while we expect the hardware to be quite similar – a 4.5-inch screen and a dual-core processor – the full PureVire camera experience will really make the EOS standout. The device’s name is so far the biggest mystery, as EOS is very much an unofficial codename.

We’ll bring you all the news from the event on the day, and you can watch the live stream for yourself at conversations.nokia.com.
