Nokia could be planning to bring its true 41-megapixel PureView camera to a Windows Phone handset this year, according to a new report.

The company is working on a device, codenamed EOS, that will come with its full PureView camera, The Verge is reporting today, citing people who have knowledge of Nokia’s plans. The device will be the first Windows Phone from Nokia that comes with the company’s genuine Pure View camera.

The upgraded sensor for Windows Phone means the EOS will be ranged as a high-end Lumia in the company’s range of devices for 2013. We understand that the EOS will be built using aluminium  rather than the typical polycarbonate found on recent Lumia Windows Phones.
