Leaked Images Show Nokia EOS Aluminum Body
Earlier this week, Nokia started sending out invites to an event in New York City on July 11th. This is when the Lumia EOS is expected to be unveiled – a Windows Phone 8 smartphone that’s rumoured to have a 41MP camera with Xenon flash, 4.5-inch OLED display (1280×768 resolution), wireless charging and 32GB of internal storage. Over the past few weeks several pictures of the Nokia EOS have leaked online that show a polycarbonate body, which is similar to previous Nokia Lumia devices like the Lumia 925, 920 and 820.
Now more images have arrived online that reveal Nokia could be coming to market with an aluminium variant of the Nokia EOS. The leaked images also clearly show the camera lens with LED flash on the back, SIM-card slot and USB port on the top.
There is also some different aluminum lens caps leaked. One has “41 megapixel” and “PureView” stamped in, and there is also one black and one white, and the 41 megapixel stamp is more proof that we will see a real super camera phone, with lossless zoom and all. It will be a tight fight between the coming super phones Nokia EOS and the Sony i1 (Honami)
If these images prove real, Nokia might be launching two versions of the same device, but that seems somewhat unlikely. A more plausible idea is that this is simply a prototype shell, one of many design iterations that the EOS device would have gone through before going into production.
