Elvis is set to arrive this summer. I am not talking about a musician here or an impersonator of the late superstar. The Elvis being referred to here is the long rumored Nokia Eos device which has been codenamed as such. Why it was named after a cultural icon beats me, but TechRadar reported that it had something to do with the smartphone’s obvious swagger.
According to the report, the Nokia handset is scheduled to be released this July or August. Then, the carrier that will be the first to feature this brightly-colored device is AT&T. Speaking of color, the unit will have a yellow polycarbonate chassis like the Lumia 920.
Aside from the yellow color, the upcoming Nokia unit will be highlighted by its 41-megapixel camera. The camera will come with Xenon flash that will enable users to take two versions of every photo. One of them would be at 35MP while the other will be at 5MP for online sharing. With that kind of camera, its photographic and video capabilities will surely take a huge take off as compared to its predecessors and current smartphones today.
Processor and OS
The Nokia Eos will possess a quad-core processor which will likely be the Snapdragon 800 by Qualcomm, based on the report. The source claimed that it would also be a souped up version of the Nokia 808 PureView because it will be carrying the Windows Phone 8 operating system.
An earlier article by the same source said that the screen resolution of the device will be 1280 x 768. However, there has been no word yet about the measurement of its display.
In addition, Elvis will have a body that will be 1 millimeter thinner than the Lumia 920. But the larger bump in its frame for its very advanced camera will surely eat up the space intended for its MicroSD Card. Thus, expect only the local memory of the phone for storage.
Other Rumored Specs
The other rumored specification of the Eos is its “flip to silence” function that will let the user turn the phone upside down to transfer incoming calls to voicemail. Add to that the Nokia Pro Camera app and other photography apps.
