More info about the specs of the upcoming Nokia cameraphone flagship, dubbed EOS, have surfaced. The device is set to carry the torch for the 808 PureView in the Windows Phone 8 era.

A report by MyNokiaBlog citing a source inside Nokia recommends the Finns are currently testing out two different versions of the EOS - with dual-core and a quad-core chipsets, respectively. In fact, the quad-core one is none other than Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800, but is assumed to be ditched in favor of the dual-core alternative due to unsatisfactory battery performance.

Speaking of battery, the source of the rumors has mentioned that the Nokia EOS would feature a 2000mAh unit - the same size as the one in the Lumia 920. However, the gist of the report is the capturing camera itself. It is rumored to sport a sensor similar to the 41MP unit of the 808 PureView, optical image stabilization and variable aperture lens.

Naturally, the sensor itself will be updated as will be the capturing camera interface. Xenon and Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash units will both be present and there are tests with 2K or 4K video recording, although it seems unlikely to create it to the final product.

The Nokia EOS would feature a display of the AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) variety with the same resolution as the Lumia 920 (1280 x 768 pixels). Display size remains unknown at this point, though. Frequency Modulation (FM) radio, microSD card slot and micro HDMI out port are also rumored to be part of the Nokia EOS arsenal.

As far as its launch date goes, nothing is set in stone, but there's information the EOS might be exclusively released for AT&T. International launch would follow 1-3 months later.
