Nokia is reportedly working on a true PureView Windows Phone, which will include a sensor similar to the one found on the company’s 41-megapixel 808 handset.

According to The Verge, the phone will be made out of aluminum rather than the polycarbonate typically found in Nokia’s Lumia line. Slated to launch on AT&T later this year, the handset –- code-named EOS -- will be one of several Lumias sporting a new design. Nokia is also reportedly working on its own Windows 8 tablet to debut later this year.

The Lumia 920 also bears the PureView name. Arguably one of the best smartphone cameras available on the market today, the 920 has a backside-illuminated sensor and fixed f/2.0 aperture, which makes for some astounding low-light photos.

Nokia also worked with Microsoft to create a new algorithm for the 920 camera that reduces visual noise, and further improves low-light performance while maintaining a natural look in photos.

2013’s Lumia will likely continue that tradition, providing high-resolution, high-quality photos, especially in low-light situations.
