Nokia is planning to launch a new Lumia smartphone equipped with a 41-megapixel camera, first rumored a few months ago, in just a matter of weeks from now. MobileGeeks has learned that the handset — codenamed EOS — will launch in the second week of July, likely on or around July 9th. The device will reportedly have a polycarbonate enclosure and 4.5-inch 720p display, similar to the flagship Lumia 920.
If your mouth is already watering over the 41-megapixel camera, it’s important to remember that megapixels don’t always matter. The problem with smartphone cameras is that, by nature of their design, they are not equipped with larger sensors or high-quality lenses like a traditional point-and-shoot or DSLR camera. In a nutshell, this results in discoloration, noise and other issues that can contribute to subpar photos.
