Nokia EOS poses for more leaked photos wearing black and red outfitsAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Hot on the heels of some images that claim to show parts of the Nokia EOS and its 41-megapixel camera sensor, two new sets of shots have surfaced that purportedly offer peeks at a completely assembled black unit that's just casually lounging around in the wild as well as a shell of a red model. The first batch of photos, shared by GSMArena, show a black Nokia-branded handset with the usual set of capacitive Windows Phone keys on its face. Around back are the same two wireless charging pins that we saw in the leak from earlier today, as well as a protruding camera that features LED and xenon flashes.
The device in these photos has had parts of its exterior covered up, including most of the labeling on the camera. Because of this, these images don't shed any light on the actual megapixel count of the camera. The shooter on the EOS is rumored to be of the 41-megapixel PureView variety, similar to the Nokia 808 PureView that launched in 2012 with Symbian in tow.
Just like the Lumia 920 that it's rumored to be replacing, it appears that the Nokia EOS will also be offered in a red version. A rear panel that looks exactly like the other EOS leaks, huge rear camera opening and all, is the subject of a batch of images that've been posted to the Chinese forum WP XAP. Those shots are available below.
Nokia's EOS is rumored to be the Finnish firm's first Lumia Windows Phone with a "true" PureView camera. Nokia has used the PureView branding on phones like the Lumia 920 and 928, but the cameras on those phones don't have quite as high a megapixel count as the 808 PureView's. As such, the EOS could be a Windows Phone that gets photography fans excited, especially if the rumors of a "Nokia Pro Camera" mode for fine-tuning the shooter pan out. The EOS is reportedly coming to AT&T in the U.S., and it's said that Nokia could be planning to officially introduce the device at an event in July.
