Nokia could at long last migrate the gigantic lens from its 808 PureView Symbian smartphone over to a more modern smartphone design.

According to the latest Nokia smartphone rumor, obtained from a source by My Nokia Blog, the company's forthcoming "Eos" is intended to feature a 41-megapixel camera sensor. On the 808 PureView, this lens captures incredible detail and provides lossless cropping.

The Eos could also possess a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, though after testing, My Nokia Blog posits that Nokia could release it as a dual-core device after all.

Other rumored features include a 1,280x768-pixel AMOLED display and 2,000mAh battery, plus an exclusive AT&T launch preceding a global announcement a few months after that.

The smattering of rumored details don't paint much of a full picture, including which operating system the Nokia smartphone could run. I do think it's a safe bet that Nokia is researching ways to get that 808 PureView camera experience onto a Lumia Windows Phone, and that a future flagship will take us in that direction.
