Nokia ‘EOS’ Product Photos Leak, Might Make Landfall Later This Month


About a month ago, we got our first look at what is rumored to be the next big thing from Nokia camera-wise. Codenamed the ‘EOS,’ a few sources leaked IRL photos of the upcoming smartphone, showing off the bulging PureView camera module on the back and encouraging many consumers who believed that this would be Nokia’s stateside version of the company’s 808 PureView.

Now, we have a couple of leaked low-res product shots to corroborate those IRL images, and a potential release date that has the phone making an official appearance before month’s end.

The leaked photos come to us from EVLeaks, who posted both of the above images on their Twitter account. The photos, although low-resolution, look to be official product shots and are identical to the real-world photos we saw last month. The difference is that the “XX” in place of a megapixel count on the old photos looks to be have been replaced by the expected 41.

The information regarding a release date comes courtesy of a leaked screenshot of a Microsoft Store’s inventory. According to that information (and corroborated by the photos) the phone will be an AT&T exclusive available in black, yellow and white. It will retail for about $600 (off contract, obviously), and will arrive at said store on July 22nd. The store is expected to start selling them a few days later.


Where the two sources conflict is in the naming of the phone, which will not be the EOS as codenamed, but either the 1020 or the 909. EVLeaks believes the latter, while the Microsoft Store screenshot seems to indicate the former. Whichever it is, it’s likely we’ll find out next Thursday at Nokia’s already announced Zoom Reinvented event.

    It looks so ugly

    After this even mentioning a camera on any other phone will seem pointless.

    It looks great, for a device that has a sensor of that size (I own a 808 Pureview and the quality is mind blowing). If you want a thinner smartphone, there are plenty out there with tiny ridiculous sensors.

    As far as I am concerned, this little bump replaces my P&S. This thing alone is MUCH smaller than the combination of any other smartphone + P&S. Now if you are happy with the photo quality of those other smartphones, then more power to you.

    I have been waiting for this phone for so long! I for one, have high hopes for this. And yes, I’m a PC.

    I misread that headline as “might make landfill later this month” :)

    Lets hope not!

    I currently use the 808 PureView and have been hanging out for the WP8 replacement model.

    As others have mentioned, the small bump on the back of the phone is worth it if you are the type that keeps a point and shoot on you, the quality of the camera is amazing and this phone is way smaller than any seperate phone and camera combination.

    If the Samsung or iPhone camera is good enough for you then stick with it, if you want beautiful, high IQ images then the Nokia is for you :)

    Prettier than samsungs zoom camera or phone or whatever it is…this device just removed two more devices permanently from my life. No need for a video camera or photo camera anymore…make it water and shatter proof, and I’ll have no need of my tough camera as well.
