For some time we have been hearing whispers about the Nokia EOS which is expected to be the first Windows Phone smartphone to come with the magical 41-megapixel PureView camera seen in the Symbian powered PureView 808. A report by WMPowerUser claims that it received a tip from a person claiming that the device was actually a mashup of the Lumia 920 and PureView 808.

Reportedly, the device is approximately the same size as the Lumia 920 and has a similar polycarbonate shell but is much lighter; however it has a similar camera hump as the PureView 808, which flattens out at the edges.

There is also an automatic lens cover that opens to reveal a round lens, but this one is smaller than the PureView 808. This actually sounds somewhat similar to the Lumia 925 which also has a round lens in the back.
The phone will also have a Xenon flash with two LEDs again smaller than the PureView 808. One will be white for videos and the other will be red for AF. The PureView 808 has a similar arrangement.
It appears that the device will ship will a special app called Nokia Pro Camera that will provide a lot of manual control something what the stock Windows Phone camera app does not provide. It will also enable manual focus, something photographers have long asked for ever since the Lumia 920. Most probably, this app will be a camera lens like the Smart camera lens on the Lumia 925.
Display wise, it is expected to have the same 4.5-inch AMOLED WXGA panel as the Lumia 925 and the Lumia 928.
Previously, there have been reports that have suggested that Nokia could launch the phone by July, but we will need to wait and watch, to be sure.
